The performances are hosted by the municipalities of Los Realejos, Arona, El Sauzal, Adeje, Candelaria, and Tacoronte.


The performing arts programme Oye toca ver is offering two shows this week: Vida, by the company Javier Aranda, and Freak, by Amor Producciones. This initiative is organised by the Island Council of Tenerife with the councils of Adeje, Arona, Candelaria, El Sauzal, Guía de Isora, Los Realejos, Tacoronte, and the University of La Laguna.

The weekly events start on Thursday (23rd), at 8:30 p.m., at the Cultural Centre in Los Realejos, with the show Vida (Life). The actor and puppeteer Javier Aranda presents a story about two hands and the universe of a sewing basket. Vida is a play without words for puppets and actors, and it deals with the relentless and constant passage of time. The characters are born, they grow, reproduce themselves, and die in front of our eyes. Vida is therefore a constant movement forward with no turning back. It is an unstoppable and necessary journey for the cycle to begin again.

This play, which has won awards at the Feria Internacional de Huesca and in Fetén, among others, can also be seen on three other stages on the island. On Friday (24th), in the Auditorio Infanta Leonor in Los Cristianos (Arona), at 6.00 p.m., on Saturday (25th), in the Teatro El Sauzal, at 8.00 p.m., and on Sunday (26th) at 8:00 p.m., in the Auditorium of Adeje.

This week's offer of Oye toca ver is completed with the presence on the island of the company Amor Producciones and their play Freak, with the participation of Lorena López and Lara Serrano. Directed by Paula Amora, the play reveals the story of two women sitting on a sofa. The actresses, dressed as fairytale princesses, share their intimacies in the course of the play. The direct text provokes both embarrassment and laughter from the audience.

Freak offers two performances: on Friday (25th), at 8:00 p.m., at the Cultural Space Cine Viejo in Candelaria, and the following day, at 8:00 p.m. at the Auditorio Capitol in Tacoronte.
