Free

Lecturer / Conferenciante: Jorge de Juan (director, ‘The Spanish Theatre Company’)

Lecture in Spanish / Conferencia en castellano

ABSTRACT / RESUMEN
Un recorrido por las puestas en escena tradicionales y los  intentos por modernizar el género chico. ¿Género chico? ¿Transgredir? ¿Modernizar? ¿Actualizar? ¿Se puede atraer a la gente joven con puestas en escenas innovadoras? ¿Cómo conseguir que un público cultivado como el británico se interese por este género tan español? 
¿Hay interés por parte de las instituciones españolas en considerar la zarzuela como ejemplo de « marca España »?
