Challenge 2019, a commitment to social inclusion


Today is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which aims to empower them for an inclusive, equitable and sustainable development of society.

From this cross-sectional approach to inclusion, the work that the National Dramatic Center develops with this group is also considered, and which is included in its master plan that Ernesto Caballero launched in 2012. Some of the lines of work that have been implemented or reinforced since then they are: the improvement of accessibility to their shows, activities, scholarships or the creation of the festival 'A different look', which has already celebrated seven editions.

Since 2013, this contest directed by Inés Enciso and Miguel Cuerdo has been a platform that promotes and establishes the presence of artists with disabilities in the regular programming of the exhibition centers. 'A different look' has stimulated, supported, developed and publicized inclusive scenic projects and has made visible the capabilities and work of artists with functional diversity, to collaborate in the normalization and professionalization of the inclusion of creators with functional diversity in the performing arts in our country.

In the 2018/2019 season, the CDN took another step towards achieving this objective, betting on continuing projects and investing in theater research under the name of ‘Challenge 2019’. Thus, throughout this year there have been calls such as “¡Project me! ”, In which inclusive scenic projects have been advised such as, among others,“Tribes”, By Nina Raine, directed by Julián Fuentes Reta, or“ ¡¡Get tangled up! ”, In which scenic research has been provided to professionals such as Mateo Rubistein, Juanfra Rodríguez and María San Miguel.

Likewise, inclusive reading clubs have been held in institutions such as the Instituto Cervantes and the Network of Public Libraries of the Community of Madrid and workshops on culture and diversity together with AECID and the Center for Show Technology.

Accessible functions

In addition, the National Dramatic Center is adhering to the ‘Accessible Theater’ initiative, which since 2011 works to bring culture to people with hearing, visual or intellectual disabilities.

This season, accessible functions of up to nine mounts will be offered. After “Mother Courage and her children" and "Celia in the revolution”, The following that can be enjoyed –with overtitling and audio description- are for the works“Signed Lejárraga”(December 19 and 20) and“Divine words”(January 9 and 10).

It is not easy to get away from microphones and spotlights – the news that signing for Planet of Books for the Christmas campaign has caused a stir – but we have managed to steal a few minutes from your busy schedule and this is what Sherlock Holmes has told us.

Why have you suddenly left your cases and signed for an editorial?

Well, I certainly haven't left my cases. I just expand the type of research that I will carry out.

What do you mean?

Give away books at Christmas, the reason for my signing by the publisher as you comment. Let me ask you: how many times have your family and friends told you how much they loved your Christmas present?

Hm …

There you have the answer. My goal is that the gifts this Christmas do not end up being a mere decoration. As? Giving away books. And that's why I signed for Planet of Books in this Christmas campaign. Giving away is really a deduction game: you only need to gather the right clues, the comments you may have made and that you have overlooked … And I am a specialist in collecting data and getting a final answer.

As you have heard me say on some occasion, I believe that the main proof of a person's true greatness lies in the perception of his own smallness. And this is where I come into play. To help overcome that deficit in the proper choice of readings for other people.

“My goal is that the gifts of this
Christmas does not end up being a mere
decor. As? Giving away the books

more appropriate and personal.
And that's why I signed for Planet of
Books in this Christmas campaign. ”

And his interest in books, since when does he come?

I myself have been a literary character, how can I not like books? In addition, I consider that literature is consubstantial to intelligence and that is why whenever I have a moment I like to broaden my horizons with a reading. And I think everyone should do the same.

We already know that you will not have had time to start researching the best books for all readers, but … What readings would you recommend, for example, to your acquaintances and family this Christmas?

Very easy. I would give my flatmate and dear Doctor Watson Eat real food from Carlos Ríos, so you can start taking care of yourself at once! And also the winning novel of the 2019 Planet Award, Terra Alta, because he will know how to empathize very well with the main character, a policeman tormented by his past. Surely as a former combatant who is the doctor, he is very interested in building the character that Javier Cercas has written.

I would give my dear landlady, Mrs. Hudson The negotiated yin and yang, by Eduardo Mendoza. He will have a good time with the adventures of the protagonist during the second half of the twentieth century. And since I know that I always spoil myself with food, I would add the latest from Arguiñano, Cook day by day. You will have recipes for the whole year!

To my brother Mycroft, the new spy novel by John le Carré, A decent man. I've never seen him enjoy it so much, if that verb can be used with him, like when he reads his works. And do not miss a little political and economic news. So this year I would also give Capital and ideology from Thomas Piketty. Surely it is the envy of all his companions of the Diogenes Club.

I would also have clear literary gifts for my nemesis, the evil Moriarty. Surely you would enjoy the beautiful with the thriller Chain, by Adrian McKinty … Although I don't know if I would take it more as an inspirational exercise than as an entertainment. Now, and knowing what he likes to terrorize people, another sure gift would be a copy of the bloody Foundation, by Carlos Sisí.

On the other hand, I think that the ordinary although friendly Inspector Lestrade would enjoy the investigations of the protagonist of The north face of the heart, of Dolores Redondo. And he still hadn't thought about it, but it sure will help him a lot in his cases to have a little more confidence in himself. So another perfect book for him would be The power to trust you, from Curro Cañete.

Finally, for the enigmatic and always disturbing Irene Adler, elementary: Bad woman, from Naomi Casquet. I think that the strength and independence of this book on female sexuality is all that Adler represents. He will love it, it was time to have such a book!

Thank you very much, Mr. Holmes, we are sure you will do a great job this Christmas! By the way, one last question, pure curiosity: is it true that you have never really used the expression "Elementary, dear Watson"?

You are very shrewd! Indeed, I have never used it. In my books And I know that journalists like to use the written source. But if I talk about my day to day and being honest, he will be fed up with the times he will hear me say! It is a phrase that I started to use at a certain time and that I ended up doing mine. So it has become "elementary" in my vocabulary.

We say goodbye to the detective as he leafs through some copies in the press room. The latest installment of Millennium especially his interest, perhaps because of the sagacity that characterizes its protagonist.

This Christmas, give away books

In December, four new releases at the CDN


A month full of premieres is coming for all tastes. December comes seeded from shows that range from one of the great classics of the twentieth century through two proposals of our most current dramaturgy to the replacement, for the success obtained, of a piece released last season.

A) Yes, Signed Lejárraga, by Vanessa Montfort, under the direction of Miguel Ángel Lamata, rescued last April, within the cycle "In large print", the figure of the writer and deputy María Lejárraga, and claimed her name hidden behind a story of anonymity and silence Between December 4 and 22 we will have the opportunity to relive this act of historical justice on the tables that both triumphed in its premiere.

On the other hand, on December 11 and 12 there will be the premiere of two new productions of the CRC that address two major issues: that of housing as a reflection of the economic and values ​​crisis that characterizes our days; and the debate about the gender roles passed through the sieve of irreverence, irony and absurd humor that characterize the style of the theater company in Vilo. Tenant (Numancia 9, 2ºA), by Paco Gámez, you can see it in the Princess Room of the María Guerrero Theater; and Man up It is the proposal of Andrea Jiménez and Noemi Rodríguez that will house the Francisco Nieva Room of the Valle-Inclán Theater.

For its part, the main hall of María Guerrero will host, from December 13 to January 19, one of the top works of the Spanish dramaturgy: Divine words from Valle-Inclán, he will once again shake consciences with his mordacity and his timeless mastery, with the direction and dramaturgy of José Carlos Plaza.

The children's audience will also have its place: a new appointment with Titerescena, our annual cycle of family shows. In December he visits us Vulgarcito, a fun assembly of object theater by the Salamanca company La Chana Theater.

The philosopher and writer Bertrand Russell He said: "The educators, more than any other class of professionals, are the guardians of civilization." This 27 November, International Teacher's Day, We join this maxim and celebrate, one more year, that key role that teachers and teachers have in everyone's education. Thank you, thank you for this learning that never ends and for instilling in us the passion for reading every day.

Try to summarize criteria and reflect to help us live actively and positively with our teenagers. A book that, without wanting to teach, inspires us and allows us to hear its true voice.


two

World Teachers' Day: PerhapsSecond we meet María Acaso and his rEDUvolution. By mixing the terms revolution and education point to the need to execute a real transformation in the educational spaces through five key axes: Accept that what we teach is not what students learn, change the dynamics of power, inhabit the classroom, move from simulation to experience, and leave to evaluate to move on to research. Written with direct language and nothing academic, in rEDUvolution You will find a text where visual language provides both knowledge and written language.

Is about The school against the world, A manifesto to hope. And it is that optimism is not only possible, but that it is the first moral duty of the educator.


5

World Teachers' Day: RussellFinally, the essay About education, from Bertrand Russell In him, the philosopher starts from the idea that the education we want for our children depends on our ideals about the human being. He attacks the educational system of the time, in the hands of the Church or the State, which he accuses of creating herds forming in conformity, authoritarianism and nationalism. Russell seeks to educate free and sensitive personalities, cultivated in curiosity, confidence in effort and a sense of adventure.

Guided visits to the theater: upcoming appointments


Within your pedagogical program ‘Spectator School‘, The National Dramatic Center offers the possibility of knowing the two venues in which it operates, the María Guerrero Theater and the Valle-Inclán Theater.

The guided tours of the CDN aim to bring the world of theater closer to the educational community explaining all the facets of a staging, in addition to showing the artistic and cultural heritage of its two buildings: the María Guerrero Theater, which was declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 1996 and the Valle-Inclán Theater, which received the 2007 National Architecture Award.

The tour lasts approximately one hour and thirty minutes. It offers a historical synthesis of the venue and shows both the public area and the stage or technical area of ​​the theater, thus trying to publicize all the professions that are developed around a theatrical function.

These visits are specially designed for groups of schoolchildren – mainly from the last ESO and Bachelor courses – and constitute a valuable experience to broaden knowledge and foster interest in the performing arts culture in the youth audience, in addition to giving them Know the architecture of a theater and the professions associated with the scene.

Guided tours are free and are reserved at the beginning of each season. Thus, every year an average of 200 groups pass through our headquarters between September and July, which means around 4,500 students, many of whom have their first contact with the theater directly through this experience. 80% of those who visit us are groups of educational centers, secondary schools, high schools, professional modules and universities. The rest are cultural associations.

This week we will receive at the María Guerrero Theater the visit of two groups, from the Colegio Liceo San Pablo in Madrid.

We want to thank the school community for the magnificent reception of this initiative throughout all its editions.

Translate the unattainable, by José Torralba

Talk about Jerusalem It is such a complex task as translating it, so we better start at the beginning. Novel. A lifetime to think about it and ten years to write it. Three years to translate it. Three volumes. 1,266 pages and 615,192 words in its original edition. Twenty-second most extensive novel ever written. Eleventh if we stick only to the English language. For the simple sake of useless comparison, suffice it to say that the Bible (KJV) has 783,137 words in English, and that it is the epitome of long and arduous book. From an endless book. From a book bigger than life.

Structurally, the work is divided into three distinct parts of eleven chapters, plus a prologue and an epilogue. The first, titled Boroughs, it is a very accessible social social choral novel. Throughout its chapters, we jump through different eras and points of view without ever abandoning (except for a chilling exception) the humble neighborhood of Northampton in which Alan Moore was born and grew up, the same in which he still lives, the same as Someday you will see him die. With a pronounced self-functional component and not a few political digressions, reading these pages is pleasant, not even demanding. The greatest complexity is in the back room, in the necessary documentation to adequately reflect periods, contexts, particularities, historical figures, urban planning and idiomatic turns. If the reader wanted to, he could take this volume, travel to Northampton and travel its streets as if he were a participant of the Dublin Bloomsday; stop in each corner, follow the itineraries, check the color of each tile or take a pint in the pubs referred to. In the comfort of a winter wing chair the work behind this part will not be noticed, but the writer's words, hopefully, if we have done well, will penetrate deeply.

There is a strong identity feeling here, an elegy for local culture, for respect for the places that were and are no longer, for the neighborhood haberdashery that has been replaced by the last headquarters of a hotel chain, for knowledge and recognition of a story that is despised because it is ignored, or that perhaps is ignored because it is despised. Moore tells us about his life, his family and his city, but also about the dissolution of idiosyncrasy in the homogeneity of a global mass culture, the depredation of the working class and an anti-globalization sentiment that evolves from that same ontological anarchism that will germinate in v for Vendetta. There will be those who hurry to enthrone him with a spirit brexiterBut it would be a gross misrepresentation of someone who conceives Brexit as the nth deception of a corrupt political class towards an uninformed working class, disoriented in its more than just protest. What is here, simply and simply, is darling. Appreciation. An identification of one's being with its surroundings and its past that extends to the family and historical environment, a bit in the manner of the creature that Alec Holland believed himself with the trees of his swamp. Moore the cold, Moore the calculator, the same one who sometimes seems to treat the cartoons with the intellectual dispassion of a mathematical matrix, offers here an emotional and genuinely emotional narrative. When asked to define the gender to which it belongs Jerusalem, he usually responds that it is a "genetic mythology", but it could also be seen as a family rescue, a historical rescue, as an attempt to save the memory of loved ones, places and situations from the blackness of oblivion. And, except for some flirting with the horror genre and some stylistic filigree (there are a couple of passages in free indirect style and more than one game with the verbal tenses of the third-person narrator, omniscient but not necessarily extradiegetic), that emotion is It expresses how it can only be done when it is authentic: with simplicity.

The second volume of the novel, titled Humble (Free translation of the fabulous city of John Bunyan, usually referred to in Castilian with the name of "Human Soul", but which required a more concise and sound neologism here) imposes an almost total plot, dramatic and aesthetic rupture. The fragmented narrative of the first part is replaced by a rigorously linear one (although with some other trap in terms of historical contexts, yes). There are different points of view, but there is an undisputed hero surrounded by co-stars. And social realism fades to give way to a vibrant youth adventure, a wild fantasy mix of Enid Blyton, Terry Gilliam and Lewis Carroll. Here, translation difficulties are shifted from documentation to the description of dream landscapes, the management of invented terms, the adaptation of puns and the effective translation of constructed languages. Moore creates new conjugations that express past, present and future at the same time, but the ease of English to achieve it through modal verbs irretrievably clashes with the grammatical complexities of Spanish.

Likewise, the determined commitment to the fantastic surrealist, with descriptions that jump between the historical script and the fictional narrative, requires an effort to adapt to renewed codes that, nevertheless, participate in that emotional nostalgia displayed in Boroughs. Highlights here the most adventurous Moore, the most playful and gender, that of Promethea and the first volumes of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And yet, we still see something radically different. As in all his work, psychogeography and eternalism play a crucial role, but the mythological substratum that shapes them is not the author's usual Neoplatonic syncretism, but a direct commitment to Christianity. Because this is an intimate, personal, self-fiction novel. And Moore was not raised in an airtight neighborhood, but in an Anglican one, with Sunday catechesis, pious neighbors and joyful hymns. At least, in the twentieth century. Because, as if it were the missing link between the youthful piety and the adult Gnosticism of the author, between his childhood carelessness and the political ferocity of his maturity, the history of the neighborhood explains who Moore is. Nest of rebellions and hipster sects, the chronicle of the Boroughs – full of ranters, Muggletonians and virulent pamphlets, of antitrust, republican and libertarian proclamations — and their progressive trajectory toward political, religious and cultural docility are, to some extent, opposed to that of the author of the novel. If the Boroughs have been subjected to blood and fire until they fit, Moore has freed himself from that denaturalization by going back to the origins and vicissitudes of the area that made him who he is, but always without abstaining from his baggage.

Immersed in these reflections, we reach the third volume, Vernall's research, and here the narrative pact flies through the air. The chapters jump between points of view, styles, genres, tributes … One is written in the first person, another in unusual metric verses, another in current consciousness, another in the manner of Michael Moorcock, another in a language subjoyceano unintelligible, another theatrical mode of the best Beckett, etc., and so on. It is a complex, arduous, demanding volume. He is the free and experimental Moore of Watchmen, the same one that applied Mandelbrot fractals in the great unfinished project that was Big numbers, that of the surgical and thorough dissection of that historical microcosm that composes From hell. Readers who arrive will want to tear off their skin, just like mine lies lying like an office shirt in a corner of the room, already moved, already replaced, and tanned by the effort to translate it. However, Moore does not renounce his essence, his nature, his spirit. In one way or another, the authors referred to were inspired by the neighborhood and relate to their spaces on a very personal level. The neighborhood inspired them, they later inspired him, and I gathered that experience to try to convey it to the reader.

Jerusalem, like the Bible with which it rivals in extension, it is a book of books, a history of stories. Throughout its pages, it displays a cultural artifact that participates in unclassifiable eclecticism, realistic mimesis and heterotopic spaces of postmodernism while denying its irony and hedonism. Sometimes it is cruel, sometimes it is warm, but it is never insensitive, nor distant, because that familiar and historical rescue we were talking about is intimate, and everything intimate is loved even when it is hated. No work in Moore's career allows such a holistic understanding of his life, his family, his concerns and his obsessions. Translating it has been a dream and a nightmare. I hope reading it is, at least, an interesting experience. And also intense.

On the occasion of World Guinness World Records Day, we review some of the most extravagant and incredible feats of this year.

We all have a quality, something that sets us apart from the rest or that allows us to stand out. However, becoming the first, the one that more than more than more of all, is not a possibility that is within the reach of many.

Even more so if we talk about feats such as being the person who has the most tattoos on the body (after spending more than 1,000 hours tattooing); match the longest human, who died at 122; or have the longest beard of all time, about 5.33 meters.

However, if we achieve any milestone or are better at something than everyone else, then we are record humans and have the right to appear in the new edition of the most famous book in the world, the Guinness World Records 2020.

This great updated compilation brings us the most unprecedented and jocular records by sections that include science, nature, technology, sports or entertainment among others and that, in addition, comes with a special mention to the best Spanish records that have managed to make a foothold in these pages.

We take advantage of the World Guinness World Records Day to tell you some of the most bizarre, fun or scandalous feats of this our world that you can find in it:

one Back to morse code

As far as humans are concerned, a somewhat strange and very innovative milestone is that achieved by Neil Harbisson and Moon Ribas. They carry the world's first bluetooth dental implants, which allows them to communicate with each other using the morse code. It's as simple as having an app and pressing on one of the teeth. Learning the morse code is another world …


2 The Big Surprise

The tallest tree in the world is a redwood called ‘Hyperion’, which measured 115.85 meters in 2017. This tree takes 20 meters to the Elizabeth Tower, again known as Big Ben. It is seen that watering a little got out of hand! However, the tallest tree of all time measured nothing more or nothing less than 146.3 meters, taller than the London Eye!


3 Step by step

Can you imagine living the movie of Jaws for almost 400 years? Well, with the shark that was discovered in 2016 and its more than 392 years, we would have had a movie for a while.

It is a Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus), fish and even the longest vertebrate ever known. It is also true that until 150 years this species does not reach sexual maturity, so, well, life at another rate, without haste.


4 A nightmare at home

You feel like eating pizza and you say, well, since we are, let's ask the biggest pizza in the world And bring it home. Well, it will not be, because the record is taken by a daisy with a total area of ​​1,261.65 m2. To give you an idea, it could cover (and left over) the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral.

Total, that does not enter you at home. Of course, most of the portions were destined to social dining rooms, so it was a great solidarity pizza.


5 There is no match for so much goal

In one of the milestones when it comes to sports, we have our dear FC Barcelona striker, Lionel Messi, which broke the record for the most goals scored in the League with 417 goals in 451 games. If you do the accounts, it means an average of almost one goal per game.

Another football feat is that of Ada Hegerberg, who with 41 goals is very close to being the player who has scored the most goals in the UEFA Women's Champions League. And attention, because it was also the first to receive the Women's Golden Ball. That is no longer taken away from anyone!


6 It's cheese, we paid for it!

At home we don't fall short in terms of records either. And here goes one of the most gourmet, because the most expensive cheese sold at auction It was bought in Oviedo. The restaurant El Llagar de Colloto paid 14,300 euros for just over two and a half kilos of Cabrales cheese. But it's cheese … It's understandable, isn't it? If not, ask Geronimo Stilton. 😉


7 Dresses not suitable for a rainy day

Another world record that stays at home is taken by the city of Mollerussa (Lleida) where the Mollerussa Paper Vest Museum treasures nothing more or nothing less than 325 life-size paper dresses. Almost a model for every day of the year!


8 The dizzying box office

Cinema is still an art of records and animated films are proof of this: The Incredibles 2 It is the original animated film with the highest gross income. Pixar's tape raised $ 1,242,532,436, a figure only surpassed by Frozen which, with a gross collection of $ 1,272,469,910, crowns the income podium as an animated film of all time.

What's more, the trailer for its sequel, Frozen 2, obtained 116.4 million viewings in one day, another record figure!

And you? Are you a record? For now we recommend that you look through the book and see if you can think of any skill or characteristic or whatever it is that you are unbeatable. Who knows, maybe we will read you in the next edition.

Until then, we can assure you that with this new edition of the book Guinness World Records You will learn a lot of curiosities and incredible facts.
