VINDICATING THE FESTIVE: FESTIVALS IN TIMES OF CRISIS

Latin American typically celebrates in carnivals - a ritual in which the established order ceases to exist in time and space, where we can be someone else and where norms and social principles are questioned. Festivals are a political act, bringing us together to show resistance and mutual affection. Four different festivals take part in a conversation on the questions and reflections that the current climate has given rise to and on the need to safeguard these rites and justify their political aspect when celebrations are shared. 

Moderator: Marcelo Allasino, Chief Executive of the National Theater Institute (Argentina), President of Iberescena and organizer of the Iberian-American Performing Arts Festivals Event.
