Since our beginnings, we have conducted a monthly series called LET’S TALK THEATER WITH AGUIJÓN, which brings together directors, actors, playwrights, designers, and other performing arts workers in a kind of theater salon that provides a space for these creators to showcase their work and establish a direct dialogue with the public. The talks are generally held on the last Tuesday of each month but in recent times, for obvious reasons, they have been suspended. AGUIZOÓM is a way to resume this conversation through a new virtual platform.

At 8PM on the last Thursday of each month, we will conduct live interviews on specific topics and with expert guests. These meetings, held via Zoom, will last 40 minutes and will include: panelists’ comments and testimonies, visual elements (photos, videos, multimedia, graphics), and a question/answer section through chat. Each program will be recorded, subtitled in English, and subsequently uploaded to Aguijón Theater’s website for easy access to members of the public who were unable to attend or to those who wish to see it again.

The meetings are free and open to the public and will be promoted through Aguijón Theater’s social media platforms and website.
