DramaFest was born beneath a shower, and thanks to the diversity of its participants, now it premieres beneath the rain. It is a festival that has been through water; a summer festival. Of course, only in Mexico, summer and rain go hand to hand. We mustn’t forget that we live in the country of paradoxes, so DramaFest has its own.
It is said that theatre is a look inside, but in this festival we want to look outside and raise matters for discussion to confront with the other, with the others, with other countries, with other states, with other languages. In any case, DramaFest is a diversion that is betting on the new writing, making guts out of budgets and heart out of theatre.
Finally, a happy paradox about this project is that, in a historic moment where no one seems to agree on anything, there is a festival where the most different people and the most diverse institutions share the same vision. Our infinite gratitude to all who in a personal or institutional level have joined this adventure.
