The performing arts and musical companies can register in this Learning and Social Programme offered by Auditorio de Tenerife


The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. The registration is open for this sixth edition of the programme Teatro en la Escuela (Theatre at School) for performing arts companies of the island. As an innovation for this 2021-2022 period, the offer now includes musical proposals and retakes face-to-face sessions to ensure the continuity of the last edition.

Tenerife’s theatre, dance, performing arts companies and musical ensembles can now check the requirements to register at under the section 'Learning and Social Programme'. The deadline to submit projects finishes on 21 January 2022 at 10:00 a.m.  

The artists applying for this call shall do so by registering their projects. The projects may include performances or creative processes in the classroom and a didactic guide adapted to the age of the pupils to help teachers to work on the activity beforehand. This programme is offered for pre-school, primary, secondary, high school and vocational training. 

The projects received will be analysed and selected by an evaluation committee made up of four to six professionals related to the performing arts sector (theatre, dance and music) plus two members from the education sector. The projects will be analysed and selected according to the criteria published in the call and requirements. The projects will be executed in the classrooms starting in March 2022.

The programme "Teatro en la Escuela" (Theatre at School) takes theatre, dance, and professional music to the island's schools. This initiative aims to familiarise students with performing inside their own educational context, to link academic aspects to the professional performing arts context in the Canary Islands, to lay the groundwork for favouring students' socialisation in school through cultural activities, and –at the same time– to promote the comprehensive development of schoolchildren, as the companies create performances that are adapted to the curricular needs.

Additional objectives include integrating other artistic disciplines associated with literature, making use of gestures and of the voice for expressing oneself dramatically through poetic and narrative texts. Finally, becoming familiar with the authors and their texts by analysing their structure.
