Próximamente Festival 2021
In November 2021 the cream of Latin American performing arts will gather in Brussels for the second time, for the Próximamente festival.
This festival full of high-profile performances and showcases is an excellent opportunity for professionals from all over Europe to be introduced to up-and-coming talent.
Próximamente is a festival unlike any other. How does it differ from similar initiatives? For Próximamente, different countries work together as if they were a cooperative. No one partner imposes its choices on the others, as was sometimes the case in the past. The partner countries themselves put forward their favourite performances. They select what they consider to be the most fascinating and illustrative work in the region. The result? A series of fantastic names on the programme, such as Josefina Gorostiza, Manuela Infante, Janaina Leite, Amparo González Sola, Las Tesis, Tamara Cubas, Rodrigo Arena, Carolina Bianchi, Preto Amparo, Zahy Guajajara, Diego Echegoyen, Fernando Rubio directing Pitcho Womba Komba, Luis Guenel & Ébana Garín.
Also new this year, an extension to the festival lets artists show their work in other European countries, so that other Europeans also get to enjoy these innovative creations.
