The 28th annual International Hispanic Theatre Festival (IHTF) of Miami, presented by Teatro Avante, the Adrienne Arsht Center and Teatro Prometeo of Miami Dade College, showcases some of the best theater throughout the month of July. The festival takes places in several locations around Miami-Dade County and this year honors Peru’s cultural impact on the arts.

In addition to Peruvian works, highlights this year include plays from several countries, including Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Brazil and among other nations. This weekend, July 19 – 20 at 8:30 p.m. at Miami Dade College’s Koubek Center Theater, Tribo-Comopanhia de Artes Cencias from Bahia, Brazil will stage “Entre Nos” (Between Us). “Entre Nos,” written and directed by João Sanches, is a comedy that is a play within a play where the actors discuss the plot in which they’re tangled.

Teatro Avante’s “Al Pie Del Tamesis” (On the Banks of the Thames) examines the interplay of fiction and reality in determining destiny. Written by the Peruvian Nobel Prize-winning writer Mario Vargas Llosa and directed by Mario Ernesto Sánchez, the play runs Thursday and Friday, July 25 – 26 at 8:30 p.m. at the Carnival Studio Theater at the Arsht Center.

The IHTF was my favorite event to cover last year because of the quality and depth of the performances. Each performance left me wanting more, and my wish has come true. Don’t miss IHTF. It only runs through July.

One Response to “Don’t miss the International Hispanic Theatre Festival”

  1. Jorge Mario Pedro Vargas Llosa, 1st Marquis of Vargas Llosa (Spanish: [ˈmaɾjo ˈbaɾɣas ˈʎosa]; born March 28, 1936) is a Peruvian-Spanish writer, politician, journalist, essayist, and recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature.[3] Born in Peru, Vargas Llosa is one of Latin America’s most significant novelists and essayists, and one of the leading writers of his generation. Some critics consider him to have had a larger international impact and worldwide audience than any other writer of the Latin American Boom.[4] Upon announcing the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Swedish Academy said it had been given to Vargas Llosa “for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt, and defeat”.
    We are proud of you Mario Vargas Llosa!!!
