ˊHistorias caóticas para cinco artistas desesperadosˊ (ˊChaotic Stories for Five Desperate Artistsˊ) takes the stage of the old Santo Domingo Convent, in La Laguna, tomorrow 


The Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) programme by the Auditorio de Tenerife is organised under the Island Council's Culture Area, directed by Enrique Arriaga. It will début 'Chaotic Stories for Five Desperate Artists' by the Puro Teatro Association tomorrow (the 16th) at 6:00 p.m. Admission to this show, recommended for adult audiences, is free on a first come, first served basis until full capacity is reached. 

‘Chaotic Stories for Five Desperate Artists’ is made up of five short texts whose common theme is chaos. Each of the five stories is starred by two characters who in some way express their feelings at a specific moment in their lives. The actors that are part of the Association are A. Lidia Dorta, Jesús Patrón, Sonia Lutzardo, Glenda Suárez, and Nuria Neida.

In the first of the stories in this theatrical piece, two brothers find themselves in strange circumstances and realise that their lives have taken very different paths. In the second, a female painter has been hiding a great secret from her husband, but he hides an even greater one. A comedian who gets himself entangled in a mess thanks to an admirer is the theme of the third story. In the fourth story, a husband disappears and forces his wife to turn to a professional to search for him. And, lastly, the fifth story features the appearance of a mother who causes tremendous upheaval in her unstable daughter's life.

Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is a programme that is part of the Educational and Social Area of the Auditorio de Tenerife. Teatro Aficionado encourages interest in the hobby of theatre, as well as the production of theatrical plays by the existing associations in Tenerife. This programme aims to stimulate matters such as communication, the exchange of ideas, and creativity amongst members who, in turn, belong to youth collectives, cultural collectives, women's collectives, and neighbourhood groups, among others.

Its main objectives are to promote a liking for theatre among the different social and cultural groups, as well as to promote the general public's attendance to, and love of, theatrical plays; likewise, to contribute to enriching the technical/artistic quality of amateur theatre groups and to create different work groups (directors, actors, costume designers, seamstresses, playwrights, scriptwriters, etc.).
