Crispin d’Olot: "The New Art of Making Comedies"
This is a special commissioned piece exclusive for the 5th annual El Quixote Festival. Among the many presentations of Lope, he will be performing a re-imagined conversation between Lope & Cervantes. He will also perform some of Quevedo, Luis de Góngora and many others. It promises to be a spectacular presentation.
Some 20 years ago Crispin d’Olot, old-fashioned troubadour, started performing in theaters, schools and plazas of Spain, Europe and Latin America. This theatrical, poetic and musical adventure was a response which this literary “jongleur” found utilizing classical literature as a tool to reconstruct cultural imaginary essential to a society increasingly marked by violence and the inability to meet on common points of identity and values. Crispin d’Olot is considered a necessary cultural reference and he has been blessed with great successes on television especially in prime time where the format has helped him promote his artistic quality.
Held in partnership with Artist Studio Project and the 5th annual El Quixote Festival.
