Laroles PROGRAMME 2017

Me Vuelves Lorca

This summer in Laroles the third edition of  ‘ME VUELVES LORCA’ theatre & music Festival takes place in the Alpujarras. With each edition the festival represents a new phase in the life of Un Teatro Entre Todos, an award-winning social development project. Aiming to revitalize a lesser known area  the Alpujarras in Granada through cultural events and sustainable tourism.

Laroles Theatre in Spain

A theatre in the mountains

It’s a dream that started in 2013 with the construction of a open-air theatre on the outskirts of the village. The work was carried out by members of the
local community, taking advantage of the traditional know-how in the area and using the same materials that have been used for centuries to make the agricultural terraces in the area.
The result is a beautiful, handcrafted amphitheatre in a stunning natural setting in an area that’s been hard hit by the recession. A commitment to sustainable tourism and culture set in motion by the local inhabitants.
British-born Anna Kemp is the driving force behind the project, and takes as her inspiration, the Minack Theatre in Cornwall, one of the most famous open-air theatres in the world, and the product of the commitment and determination ofanother woman, Rowena Cade (1893-1983).

Calling all Heroes

Our festival might be bite-sized but it’s big and bold in spirit. We strive hard to bring the best possible theatre to Laroles.

Thanks to the efforts of our willing volunteers, we can keep costs down,but we rely on ticket sales to keep going.

Which is why we’ve launched our>  Calling All Heroes! campaign.
No matter how small, your contribution will make a big difference…… and you will be ensuring our festival goes from strength to strength.

All our heroes will appear on our Hero Page (together with the superpower of your choice).
And because we’re all about making theatre more accessible, when you give 50€, we’ll give someone in the village a season ticket to this year’s Festival.

Buy more than one ticket……and we’ll make you a Superhero!

It would be great if you would introduce yourself in the comments section below.

I am always wondering if anyone really is out there on the other side.

Perhaps you have a blog too, or just love Spain, it would be good to know you a little better.

It means a lot as I am blogging to a blank space and them I know a little more about who I am actually writing this for.

Have a wonderful day wherever you are.
