– As in every single year since it began, Mariví and her FesTeLõn team have fought to put on a festival that’s unique in London and to present an energetic, original programme full of professionals who are passionate about the theatre. Everyone who has participated in this edition of the festival has given us a lesson of how to do something well. Without that dedication, this very special festival would simply not happen.
I would say that FesTeLõn is a work of love. But it’s actually something much more. One person’s dream and enthusiasm brought it into the world and it became an open and innovative theatrical platform in which young performers and writers share a programme with expert and well-known professionals. It’s the event we all impatiently look forward to every year so that we can enjoy plays and performances in London that connect us to writers of Spanish literature. This is really important for those of us who don’t live in Spain. What’s more, we look forward to FesTeLõn every year so that we can meet up with friends and give them a hug and a kiss at a festival that brings us together and strengthens our identity.
Thank you, FesTeLõn! Thank you Mariví! Let’s hope you get the support you need so that FesTeLõn can carry on.
