A MANO in Capetown / 19th Assitej World Congress

El Patio Teatro has been selected as the only Spanish company to perform at the festival CRADLE OF CREATIVITY, hosted and organized by Assitej South Africa.

From 17th to 27th May in CAPETOWN

During those 10 days the city will host as well Assitej's 19th World Congress and Assitej's Conference with more than 1000 professionals and delegates arriving from all over the world.
We are quite proud of being part of this magnificent event that will bring 60 international and African top live music, dance and theatre plays to the local community of children and families.

As it is stated on the festival's website:
This will be the first ASSITEJ World Congress to be held on the African continent since the inception of ASSITEJ in 1965. The event will be conceptualized not only as a South African event, but also as a truly African one, focusing on what the continent has to offer in terms of theatre for young audiences. As Africa is the cradle of humankind, so this Congress will be a "cradle of creativity" for ASSITEJ, and for theatre for young audiences on the continent and across the world.

The company will perform at BAXTER THEATRE STUDIO from 18th to 20th of May.
