Microteatro Season Finale
Smile, You Are in San Miguel
By Jade Arroyo
Microteatro San Miguel de Allende held a soirée to celebrate the finale of their second season, “Por el cine” “For the Film” on Sunday, August 21.
The staff of Microteatro, directors, actors, and production people gathered to commemorate the last performance of the series, to celebrate its success in the city, and to thank the members of the community who have been a part of this project. Their tradition is to do an improvisation act at the end of every season.
Music and surprises greeted the guests along with the announcement of next season’s theme: “Por los pueblos” “For the People”, 27 original mini-plays not to be missed. A new art show was also inaugurated at the tapas bar.
For those who do not know, Microteatro is a relatively new concept of experimental theater, born in Spain, and then spread to various parts of the world, including Mexico City, Buenos Aires, and Costa Rica. We now have our version—Microteatro San Miguel de Allende—in a city that believes that theater is something for everyone.
Microformat plays of 15 minutes are presented in small spaces with fewer than 15 spectators per show. Several plays run simultaneously in this way. You can choose both the amount of time to spend in the theater—according to the number of performances you want to see—and the total amount you want to pay, as you pay individually for each play.
Microteatro San Miguel de Allende is located on Reloj 70, a few blocks from the Jardín. Tickets cost 70 pesos, and there are weekly combos and promotions. In addition, there is a Spanish tapas bar where you can grab a bite and talk before the show. For more information, visit microteatrosma.com.
