After an abrupt announcement that the opening shows were being canceled, the Teatro Espressivo is continuing on with its series of performances through early July.
The series, titled “Espressivo Invita,” is open to the public beginning this Friday with “Deluvios…recuerdos de un migrante.”
For several weekends, the public can enjoy a wide variety of shows including: contemporary theater, dance, cabaret and a magic show all run by professionals, organizers said.
The series is a first for the theater and the groups of professionals consist of independent artists and companies with the aim of providing a higher-quality array of theatrical options, according to a statement issued by the theater.
The opening show this Friday is performed in chapters based off the collection of historical record and anecdotes regarding deportation, exile and displacement among others.
“This work aims to amalgamate experiences that are a human vision of this situation and only a small reflection of a force that is more powerful than any wall. The instinct to migrate,” a description provided by the theater said.
“We believe that theater in Costa Rica is of a very good level and that is why we decided to welcome new productions in our theater or that have been successfully presented in other venues that deserve to be seen by many more people,” said Natalia Rodríguez, the executive director for Teatro Espressivo.
Tickets for these shows cost 8,000 colons for general seating and 10,000 for VIP placements. The shows will be performed Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m.
Tickers can be purchased every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the ticket box or online at the theater’s website.
A full schedule and description of Teatro Espressivo’s shows can also be found on its website as well.
