'Don Quixote Nomad' is the winner of the Children's Baroque competition at the Almagro International Classical Theater Festival.
The Sevillian company bricAbrac has won the twelfth Children’s Baroque competition at the Almagro International Classical Theater Festival with its work ‘Don Quixote nomad’. The work directed by Elena Bolaños has been awarded for its magnificent use of new technologies in combination with the craftsmanship of puppets and set elements, thus bringing the universe of Cervantes closer to a wide audience.
A special mention has also been given to the version of ‘Life is a dream’ performed by the Peruvian company Teatro La Plaza. The jury was made up of different students from schools in the city of Ciudad Real and by coordinators of the festival and the Performing Arts Area of the Murcia City Council.
The play ‘Don Quixote Nomad’ is inspired by Cervantes’ novel and fuses the puppet show and live cinema, integrating traditional poetics with technology. The characters on paper are recorded by cameras and the adventures of the gentleman of the sad figure are narrated in a comic key.
During the press conference in which the winner was announced, various directors and theater companies presented their works at the festival. Ricardo Iniesta from Atalaya, Eduardo Vasco from Noviembre Teatro, Rodrigo Arribas from Fundación Siglo de Oro and Guzmán Calzada from Miscelánea Ensemble highlighted the importance of theater as universal heritage and presented their respective works at the event.
Iniesta presented ‘El avaro de Molière’, an updated musical version of the French playwright’s work. Vasco presented ‘Open your eye’ and ‘The recitation of the classic verse on slate records’, where he reviews the sound memory of Spanish actors. Arribas presented his version of ‘La dama boba’ by Lope de Vega, and Calzada presented ‘Eso rigor e repente’, a concert that shows the musical exchanges in the Golden Age. In general, the participants highlighted the opportunity to present their shows at the festival and highlighted the importance of diversity and cultural fusion in their productions.
