Launch: The Colombian Reader @ Biblioteca Luis Ángel Arango
Jul 26 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Colombian Reader

A collection of stories and articles about Colombia that were originally written in English. It promises to be interesting and relevant, especially moving into a post-conflict Colombia.

There are over one hundred documents in the selection, from journalism to poetry and oral histories to government reports. The idea is to illustrate how Colombians from different parts of the country understand their own history.

The collection highlights topics such as rural and urban division, racial and economic inequality and the history of violence, offering contrasting views of this pluralistic nation.

Shakespeare enamorado – Shakespeare in Love @ Teatro Colón
Jul 26 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The majestic Teatro Colón will be swept up by love, as a theatrical adaptation of Tom Stoppard’s Shakespeare in Love graces the stage in Shakespeare enamorado. The original script of the 1999 Oscar-winning film has been translated by Colombian writer Juan Gabriel Vásquez, and the star-crossed lovers will be played by Colombian actors Nicolás Montero and Carolina Ramírez, making a truly local production out of this British tale.

A young Shakespeare falls hopelessly in love with the fearless Viola. Their love blossoms when Viola successfully auditions for Shakespeare’s next production. Romance is thwarted, however, as Shakespeare is already married and Viola promised to another.

Artistic director Laura Villegas will transport the audience back to the 16th century, through a set design inspired by the traditional Shakespearean-era roundhouse theatre with a modern twist.  

Various days between 21 July – 27 August, 7.30pm. Sundays, 4.30pm

Nuestras Mujeres @ Teatro Nacional La Castellana
Jul 27 @ 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Nuestras Mujeres

After international success, French writer Éric Assous’s comedy Nuestras Mujeres arrives in Bogotá. Three close friends, Paulo, Simón and Max meet weekly for a round of cards and some bro time. However, their lives are inextricably changed once Simon arrives late after committing a serious crime.

Paulo and Max are forced to contemplate the dilemma of helping their friend with an alibi or denouncing his crime. “It’s a comedy about very disturbing issues, marriage relationships and friendly relationships, and the knot is the mess between those two natures,” said Germán Jaramillo, who plays Paulo. The comedy reflects upon the universal themes of the value of friendship, integrity, justice, and the struggle between right and wrong.

The play takes place in a single scene in time, and audiences will be impressed by the character’s depth and unpredictable storyline. The play stars Víctor Mallarino, Luis Fernando Hoyos and Germán Jaramillo and is directed by Mario Morgan.

A 2.50 la Cuba Libre at Casa E @ Casa E
Jul 28 @ 10:00 pm

In an interactive cabaret, five ‘women of the night’ share their deepest secrets. The first is a classic beauty who longs to be rescued from her misery by her Prince Charming. The second is a woman torn between money and an easy lifestyle.

Another was abandoned during her pregnancy. The fourth is an ambitious businesswoman whose trade is the bodies of others, and lastly, a depressed woman who feels like her life is a bolero. Guarachas, rancheras, and boleras provide the soundtrack to this provocative and hyperrealist work.

Over drinks, the audience learns about and engages with the women’s fears, yearnings, and anguish. A 2.50 la Cuba Libre was originally written by Venezuelan playwright Ibrahim Guerra in 1982 and is considered a prime work of Latin American theatre. The piece debuted in Venezuela, and now returns to Casa E with director Johan Velandia.

Y ahora ¿quién podrá defendernos? @ Biblioteca Luis Ángel Arango

quién podrá defendernos

Y ahora ¿quién podrá defendernos? Lecturas y conversaciones para entender a Latinoamérica en la crisis de la democracia – And now who can defend us? Lectures and conversations to understand Latin America in a crisis of democracy.

Donald ‘pendejo’ Trump is the hot topic in the world, maybe hotter even than a Mexican sauce. So that’ll be the springboard to talking about uncertainty in Latin America and crises in democracy. Rumours of a sweepstake on when the fucking world is going to end.

Entrance is free, but places are limited.

No, it’s not a language exchange but the best in Latin Hip Hop!

The name of this event Honor a mi Lenguaje 2 (honour my language) is a little bit confusing. It’s not a language exchange or a right wing language protection scheme, but a hip hop night show casing the best talent around. It’s also starting at 1pm, so it’s open to all ages. If I say hip you say hop!

Nuestras Mujeres

After international success, French writer Éric Assous’s comedy Nuestras Mujeres arrives in Bogotá. Three close friends, Paulo, Simón and Max meet weekly for a round of cards and some bro time. However, their lives are inextricably changed once Simon arrives late after committing a serious crime.

Paulo and Max are forced to contemplate the dilemma of helping their friend with an alibi or denouncing his crime. “It’s a comedy about very disturbing issues, marriage relationships and friendly relationships, and the knot is the mess between those two natures,” said Germán Jaramillo, who plays Paulo. The comedy reflects upon the universal themes of the value of friendship, integrity, justice, and the struggle between right and wrong.

The play takes place in a single scene in time, and audiences will be impressed by the character’s depth and unpredictable storyline. The play stars Víctor Mallarino, Luis Fernando Hoyos and Germán Jaramillo and is directed by Mario Morgan.

Thursday and Friday 8.30pm, Saturdays 6pm and 8.30pm, Sunday 6pm

Shakespeare enamorado – Shakespeare in Love @ Teatro Colón
Aug 4 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The majestic Teatro Colón will be swept up by love, as a theatrical adaptation of Tom Stoppard’s Shakespeare in Love graces the stage in Shakespeare enamorado. The original script of the 1999 Oscar-winning film has been translated by Colombian writer Juan Gabriel Vásquez, and the star-crossed lovers will be played by Colombian actors Nicolás Montero and Carolina Ramírez, making a truly local production out of this British tale.

A young Shakespeare falls hopelessly in love with the fearless Viola. Their love blossoms when Viola successfully auditions for Shakespeare’s next production. Romance is thwarted, however, as Shakespeare is already married and Viola promised to another.

A 2.50 la Cuba Libre at Casa E @ Casa E
Aug 4 @ 10:00 pm

In an interactive cabaret, five ‘women of the night’ share their deepest secrets. The first is a classic beauty who longs to be rescued from her misery by her Prince Charming. The second is a woman torn between money and an easy lifestyle.

Another was abandoned during her pregnancy. The fourth is an ambitious businesswoman whose trade is the bodies of others, and lastly, a depressed woman who feels like her life is a bolero. Guarachas, rancheras, and boleras provide the soundtrack to this provocative and hyperrealist work.

Over drinks, the audience learns about and engages with the women’s fears, yearnings, and anguish. A 2.50 la Cuba Libre was originally written by Venezuelan playwright Ibrahim Guerra in 1982 and is considered a prime work of Latin American theatre. The piece debuted in Venezuela, and now returns to Casa E with director Johan Velandia.
