Teatro a Mil 2017 in Rapa Nui

This coming year, the international theater festival “Santiago a Mil” will also include Easter Island. The artistic event, held every year in the month of January, will not only take over the streets, theaters and other public spaces of the capital city, but will offer a cultural exchange between artists from Rapa Nui and those of “Teatro a Mil”, sharing some of the more than 60 presentations that are to be offered by Chilean and international companies. Two presentations by Rapa Nui groups will be offered in Santiago and two by international and continental Chilean groups on Easter Island.

This cultural exchange will offer stimulating creative material and experiences which could bring about an awaking and inspiration for the future development of the arts and culture of Rapa Nui.
