XI Russafa Escènica

Friday 1, Saturday 2 and Sunday 3
Several venues

Russafa Escènica is one of the most popular festivals of Ruzafa, the neighborhood where our Spanish school is based 😊
An event that all lovers of the performing arts look forward to every year.

In order to pay tribute to the Ruzafa neighbourhood (which means “garden” in Arabic), the programming is divided into three categories:

Viveros. Short pieces lasting between 20 and 30 minutes in unconventional locations
Bosques. Long pieces of about 60 minutes in private and public spaces
Invernadero. Own production of the festival and outcome of a creation and research workshop.

This weekend (Saturday 2 and Sunday 3) at the TEM theatre will be staged the show Ultraficción Nr.3 Complicidad de materiales anónimos, created and directed by the theatre company El Conde de Torrefiel.

If you like theatre and the performing arts, we encourage you to take a look at the entire festival program.

We hope our post will help you spend a nice first weekend of October in Valencia…

And as always, we encourage you to continue practicing your Spanish outside the classroom, learning new words and expressions.

Our Spanish school El Rincón del Tandem in Valencia wishes you a happy weekend.

See you soon!
