7th annual theater festival upon us

October 5, 2012

The first 28 days of October mark the nation’s seventh annual Festival of National Theater, or the Encuentro Nacional de Teatro.  This year’s festival also overlaps with the Central American Showcase.

Founded in 2005 by a group of people from different theater institutions, the Encuentro Nacional de Teatro seeks to promote theater in Costa Rica through screening performances from different national theater groups and providing theater workshops at both the professional and amateur level.

This year’s event will feature national performances, workshops and discussions in the city’s main theaters, Melico Salazar, Teatro La Aduana and Teatro 1887 del CENAC. As part of the Central American Showcase, there will also be shows from Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panamá.
