With Central Park as the stage, Spanish actors in New York perform scenes from Spanish classical and contemporary plays.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, Central Park became the backdrop for profound segments from Spain’s most recognized plays. The main objective of this new initiative is to support the development of Spanish-language theater in New York and to raise awareness around Spanish professionals and organizations working in this industry in the city. From Lope de Vega to Lorca, the bucolic and often mysterious setting brought the New York energy to these renowned Spaniards’ words. We are continuing to shoot these Mini Micro Theaters in 2022. Where would you like us to go in Central Park next?
