"Cervantes in the German Tavern"
Spanish theatrical performance commemorates the life of the author of "Don Quixote of la Mancha”August 18th, 2016
The play forms the commemoration of the IV Centenary of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Fénix Teatro, the Spanish theater company established in Berlin, showcases the representation of a young audience. The story attempts to explain the writer's career through theater. It takes place in one of the most classic pubs in Madrid, The German Tavern, where Cervante's daughter invites the public to remember his father. A glance into some of his masterpieces, life experiences and time allows the audience to know the most human and unknown singularities of the author of Don Quixote.
The play has already taken place twice in Berlin and received great feedback from the audience. It has become a precious example of how to bring people together though culture and art. In other terms, broadcasting knowledge from other cultures, using performance art as the result of international collaboration, is the ideal use of cultural diplomacy.
