For as many as 20 editions, the Theatre Fair has been consolidated as one important meeting point for the field, where the strong ties we hold with the Portuguese market and with the audience are happily highlighted.
Let’s say that Theatre Fair of Castilla y León is a general Fair, where newness is privileged so that it holds any kind of performing arts proposals, opening a wide range from the most conventional up to the most risky ones: diversity and involvement with the field are our hallmark. The creative talent is an engine that helps us to grow. One of the most important areas of our programming is targeted to children and families; likewise, a third of it encompasses street arts for any kind of audience and open air. The Theatre Fair is developed in 15 different spaces and approximately a 30% of the companies belong to our region, 15% are foreign companies, and the reminder ones come from different regions in Spain.
The Fair is stated as a public service for stimulating the cultural industries in our region, it stimulates the performing arts market in Spain and Portugal and helps to enrich our territory. Thanks to all the people who made that happen.
