INAEM message on the occasion of World Theater Day 2020

A March 27 more willing to celebrate World Theater Day. But this March 27, 2020 is not one more on the calendar, because we will not be able to enjoy the enormous pleasure that comes from attending the theater.

The art of the stage has endured century after century: no war, no natural catastrophe, no fall of great empires has managed to overcome it. And of course, no coronavirus, as atrocious as it may be, will succeed.

March 27, 2020 will go down in history as that World Theater Day in which all our stages remained in the dark, only illuminated by the witness light; in which the actors did not have the opportunity to give voice to the classic and contemporary playwrights; in which the technicians could not fulfill their indispensable task of making it possible for the curtain to rise and remain lifted throughout the performance; And worst of all, the day when the public had to stay at home, with their unfulfilled desire to participate in community in this wonderful ritual.

Achieving that all this happens again, that ultimately everything returns to its natural course, will not be an easy task and will have to be a task shared by all, which will require a lot of solidarity and dedication. Task in which those of us who hold public office have an immense responsibility not only towards the artists and professionals of the theater but before the whole of society. A responsibility aimed at preserving the theatrical legacy; to support the work of our artists, the weakest link in the cultural chain; to prevent the destruction of artistic employment and that linked to it; to strengthen the business and associative structures necessary to provide muscle to the theater and the rest of the performing arts.

We celebrate this March 27 with uneasiness and with some uneasiness but that this concern does not paralyze us, but rather puts us under pressure to know that we must rise to the challenge and that we are going to fight hard from the public side to recover everything that is coronavirus is trying to snatch us.

From my window: Clàudia Cedó

The National Dramatic Center (CDN) opens the section From my window on their website and social networks. Different authors and authors will write and read a creative text about what they see from their window. The first podcast has been written by Clàudia Cedó that this season excited the public with his text Like a bitch in a wasteland.

Listen to the podcast of From my window: Clàudia Cedó!

I get up
I tidy up the house a little.
I do my exercise routine
I shower
I prepare a good breakfast
And I start to write with a coffee in front
It's half past nine
She still hasn't woken up
When he gets up there will be boobs, and naps, and incomprehensible chatter that makes you laugh
When I get up I won't be able to write often
I will do it between takes, when he falls asleep, when he wants to stay in the hammock alone
When he gets up, my work will take a second place.
I will see it from afar, how the mountains in the background turn blue
And the ones in front, the closest ones, are green and clear, how much more important.

But one day there is someone who coughs on someone else.
And that second someone goes to the market and coughs on the food that many more buy
And so a virus begins to spread that will eventually reach my small town, forcing all of us to seclude ourselves in our homes.
Also to him
Then a new day will begin.
When she gets up there will be boobs, and naps, and incomprehensible chatter that makes you laugh
But I will not stop writing
Because I will not be alone with the girl.
He will be there, who will be able to see her wake up every morning.
That you can enjoy and take care of it
And my work will once again be a mountain in front of me.
One of the green and sharp
One of the important ones.

I realize the privilege of being able to live this confinement like this.
Of not having to share space with who mistreats me
Of having a space to share with someone
Of having orders to write
and a job that I can do from home.
Not to be sick or vulnerable to be.

But this confinement has also helped me to realize how necessary equality is between paternity leave and maternity leave.
Because having your own room is important.
But also it is to have time to enter it.

(Clàudia Cedó)

We are about to travel virtually to visit another comic bookstore. It is the turn of Kame Kame House, which currently has 3 stores under its belt: in Rubí, Terrassa and Sabadell. Its owners, Agustín and Sandra, decided to open this business 10 years ago because they are "super fans of everything we bring". And it turns out that everything they bring is the most varied: comics, Manga, merchandising, board games, pops, figures …

The treatment and gender diversity are its hallmarks and the reason for its success. The smooth running of the first Rubí store allowed its expansion, expanding the Kame Kame House chain's sales outlets to 3. Undoubtedly, a referential meeting point in Vallès.

We said goodbye to them by writing down their favorite comic published by Planeta Comic: Dragon ball from Akira Toriyama 🙂
