This evening sees the start of the annual Adeje Dance and Theatre showcase, marking twenty years staging works in the borough. Every Friday the Adeje cultural centre will host a performance, starting at 8.30pm.
According to cultural councillor Adolfo Ferrera, “this has become a firm and favourite part of our annual calendar of artistic events and is evidence of our commitment to the art in general. And for the second year running the showcase coincides with the Adeje Gastronomy Fair with both events coming together at various stages during the month”.
This event the Morfema company stage a comedy, “El buen Samaritano”, and next Friday Burka Teatro offer “La Batalla”. The following week Paula Quintana interprets a poetic staging of “Siempre, en algún lugar”, combining dance, theatre and video and the showcase festival closes with “Me llamo Suleiman” staged by Una hora menos producciones.
