Vives  Elpuntg

Vives revolves around Valencian spring and the upcoming change through real events. There is a link between the rejection towards Juan Luis Vives, the Valencian humanist from the 16th century (especially towards his family, who were brutally burnt for being Jewish), and the events that took place in February 2012 at the secondary school named after him, which gave rise to what was later known as #primaveravalenciana (#valencianspring). This theatre proposal essentially intends to reflect on education, its evolution (and its regression), as well as on books as material and spiritual objects. Vives is a production by El Punto G, together with Espacio Inestable theatre company, IES Lluís Vives Theatre Club and the University of Valencia. Performed in Catalan.  IES session. Tickets €3

Hécuba - Aula de Teatro Universidad de Alicante

This play is a version of Euripides’ tragedy, which is set in the Trojan War but told from women’s point of view, given that they always turn out to be the main losers. Men die on the battlefield, therefore becoming heroes. Women, however, are the ones who lose everything, even their own freedom. Hécuba tells the story of a she-wolf, of a mother of courage who is able to draw her inner strength to make justice, even when she has lost everything. This is the great story of great women based on a translation by Juan Antonio López Férez and directed by Pascual Carbonell. Entrance by invitation only.

Los figurantes - UPUA Theatre Club

UA Lifelong Learning Programme (UPUA) Theatre Club will adapt Sanchis Sinisterra’s fun comedy, Los figurantes, released in 1989. This play sets out the extras’ rebellion against leading actors. Extras take the stage giving rise to nonsensical and surreal situations that might not be so distant from real life… Playing with metatheatre, this comedy is divided into two acts and formed by nimble and direct dialogues, together with an informal language and choir scenes. Apart from the fun moments, however, the play raises a question for reflection: is it actually us who drive our own lives? Entrance by invitation only.
