MAY AGENDA

THERE ARE MANY THINGS TO DO IN THE CITY, BUT WE CONSIDER THAT CERTAIN EVENTS, BESIDE FROM OFFERING FUN, COULD ALSO HELP US TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THIS PLACE AND THE LOCAL SOCIETY. INSIDELIMA SUGGESTS THE FOLLOWING EVENTS:

 

  • FITECA: LAST DAYS!

FITECA means Street Theatre Festival (Fiesta Internacional de Teatro en Calles Abiertas), and congregates every first week of May different groups coming from all around the world. This event takes place in La Balanza, Comas, in the middle of the hills located in the very northern side of the city. This is a great  local initiative that started in 2002. This effort pretends to promote theatre, art and culture as a way for obtaining social transformation.

Friday the 7th 7:30 p.m. will take place the opening of the new exhibition: The State of Fictions,  a group of works by local artists that pretend to reflect about the peruvian identity.

  • CARICATURES EXHIBITION:  

Centro Cultural Inca Garcilaso shows the most famous local caricature designers. This is an interesting opportunity to see how these graphic artists represent with sense of humour the local reality and its idiosincracy. The place is located in front of San Pedro church, Downtown, and the exhibition goes until May 23rd. Included in the Downtown Walking Tour.
