Cuba's digital destination
Participants include Cuban and international artists under 35 years of age with individual or group projects which have been accepted by the Organizing Committee.
The Festival is divided into two main events: Musicalia (music in any format or genre and interdisciplinary projects), Elsinor (stage production, dramatized readings, performances, public interventions and video-installations), Marcapasos (contemporary dance, ballet, folklore and interdisciplinary projects), Imago (fiction films, documentaries, animated films, music videos, spots/trailers, one-minute shorts, radio shows, scripts), Expo-ISA (visual art projects of all kinds of expressive means and techniques and interdisciplinary projects) and Jornada del Joven Restaurador (papers or posters on conservation-restoration of tangible cultural heritage, challenges faced by museology, Cuban intangible heritage and Cuban cultural heritage management; also a painting competition and a photography competition on Cuban national heritage).
The Elsinore Theatre Festival has been held in Cuba every year for over 30 years. The staging of plays in theaters and open spaces, set design, dramatic texts, criticism and research related to the world of theater are part of the activities that take place during the festival. This is a showcase for young Cuban playwrights (there is an age limit of 35), and an opportunity for them to reach a wider public, to experiment with new works and to collaborate with old alumni from the University of the Arts (ISA).
Venue: Universidad de Las Artes (ISA), Calle 120 No. 1110, entre 9 y 13, Cubanacán, La Habana
