"As the advance of the curfew forced us to schedule the shows at unusual and more complicated hours for those who work or have occupations in the middle of the afternoon, we have wanted to adapt to the situation again, being aware that our public is used to seeing them Adult performances do not begin before eight o'clock in the afternoon, "says Marco Antonio Costa, director of the venue, who points out that this also benefits companies, which have more time to set up their shows.
In this way, the Theater will reopen its doors on March 5 at 20:00 p.m. with 'Una noche sin luna', directed by Sergio Peris Mencheta and starring Juan Diego Botto, and will repeat the next day with the same show, that, set in the life and work of Federico García Lorca, has received great praise from the public and critics.

All the shows for adults will start at 20:00 p.m., while the performances of 'Semente, the man who planted trees' and 'Deshielo', aimed at the little ones, will begin at 18:00 p.m.
In any case, both the Provincial Council and the Theater Directorate want to remind viewers that, due to the health situation, the programming is subject to possible changes at any time, which, in all cases, would be governed by the regulations and restrictions established by other Administrations. Both are grateful once again for the understanding shown by the spectators throughout this year and hope that normality can soon reach the room, which until then will continue to take extreme precautions and disinfection measures and keep its capacity reduced.

The Ministry intends for none of the committed activities to be stopped, the commitments acquired in the 'Pact for Economic Recovery, Employment and Social Cohesion in Castilla y León' are fulfilled, where two agreements were reached to formalize the total of the execution of the programmed expenditure for 2020 in cultural activities of all kinds, as set out in point 40 of the agreement.
"This guarantees access to the functioning of stable and regular cultural activity in places such as museums, libraries or archives, among other cultural and artistic centers of the Community," they specified from the Board.
As long as this health crisis situation continues, the Ministry will offer a large part of its cultural activity 'online' and, specifically, in this month of February, with the face-to-face closure of its centers, telematic and audiovisual formats of all kinds are covering largely the access of citizens to culture and safeguarding as much as possible the activity of the cultural and creative industries of Castilla y León.

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to prevent the normal course of events around the world. The town will live, like the whole country, its second consecutive year without Easter as such, so this 2021 the Board of Brotherhoods has wanted to reinvent itself by adapting to current regulations. It does not leave many possibilities and it is unfeasible for there to be processions and events that involve overcrowding of the public, so a concise and simplified program of events carefully studied for their celebration has been chosen.
Yesterday, Ash Wednesday, would have been the day of the presentation of the program and poster of the Cuellarana Holy Week 2021, but even the liturgical act had to be reduced. The convent of Santa Clara, that of La Concepción and the church of San Miguel hosted the event but reduced to a capacity of 25 people. The Sanctuary of El Henar broadcast the celebration through its YouTube channel, and thus shared the beginning of Lent with all the faithful.
This was the starting gun for this unusual Easter, but it will have a poster and will be presented later. There will only be one Lenten talk this year. Normally, there are two or three that dominate the beginning of Holy Week, but only one will be held on Saturday, March 20 at 18.00:XNUMX p.m. Eight days later and as the beginning of Holy Week, a brief Palm Sunday will be celebrated: the Eucharist will be normal, with its reduced capacity in the temple, without distribution of bouquets or procession; the faithful who want will be able to come with their house bouquet.
The central act that will denote that they are designated dates is the exhibition of the steps of the different brotherhoods in their headquarters: San Miguel, San Esteban and San Andrés will host the steps as in previous years they have done before their respective outputs in procession.
This year they will not, but the public will be able to enjoy them. The temples can only accommodate 25 people for a maximum of 15 minutes. The images will have explanatory posters and the history of each brotherhood. The images, object of devotion of the faithful, will be placed as a symbol of the celebration.
The Stations of the Cross will take place on Good Friday at 10.00:19.00 am in the temple of San Miguel; Holy Thursday and Good Friday will have the usual Holy Offices. On Saturday the Easter Vigil would be held at night, but it is brought forward at 10.00:11.00 p.m. in the two convents and in the church of San Miguel. To conclude with Easter Sunday, Eucharists have been arranged at 11.30, XNUMX and XNUMX hours, as they announced at the last meeting of the Board of Brotherhoods.
The Parish of Cuéllar wants to bring the events to the entire public and for this it adapts to new technologies. As in the Sanctuary of El Henar, they want to broadcast live, but they need at least 1.000 subscribers on YouTube, so they invite everyone to subscribe and spread their messages without direct contact.

We have an immense cultural wealth that is manifested in a particular way in each of the 15 cities and in a general way in the joint program of actions that we have addressed in the Commission, both in the programming of a new edition of the Heritage Night, as well as the Chamber Music Cycle or the promotion of a National Platform for Dance in Heritage Cities ”.
The Commission has approved holding the VIII Chamber Music Cycle in the autumn, specifically between the months of October and December, in collaboration with the Reina Sofía School of Music.

In this Forum, good practices will be analyzed, as well as the development of protocols for new post-Covid19 formats with the presence of prestigious national and international cultural managers, and representatives of the Ministry of Culture and Sports. This Forum will be organized in the first half of 2021, when security measures advise it, in Alcalá de Henares ”.

The town of Cuéllar will be part this year of the network of Scenic Circuits of Castilla y León. This was stated this week by the deputy for Culture, José María Bravo, in an announcement received with satisfaction by the Department of Tourism, Culture and Heritage of the Cuéllar City Council, which positively values the incorporation of the Alfonsa de la Torre cultural hall in said program , a system of collaboration between administrations "that will make it easier for us to carry out annual programming of performing arts and musical shows."
The Culture area pointed out through a statement that the incorporation of the town "makes us especially excited", taking into account that it had been requested on several occasions and it had not been possible to access the network so far due to the limitations of the cultural infrastructures of the municipality.
Likewise, they were hopeful that the measure taken in this call by the Junta de Castilla y León, opening the program to other smaller scenic spaces «is not something specific and allows us to continue opting to bring higher quality groups to the town and maintain a cultural program that enriches life in the town, and even makes it more attractive to tourists.
The incorporation of the locality is due to a new regulation, which included innovations regarding the integration of new entities and spaces, as well as the elimination of administrative obstacles to facilitate the extension of the program. The new modification is intended to comply with some of the objectives of the Ministry, among which is to ensure access to culture for all citizens and in a very special way to guarantee that those who reside in rural areas of Castilla y León can exercise that right under equal conditions.
Among the objectives of Culture is also to ensure the quality of the programming and to favor the access of all citizens to the cultural creations of the professionals of the performing arts and the promotion of the sector in Castilla y León. Thus, the new regulation of the Scenic Circuits incorporates new mechanisms that guarantee the quality of the programming by professionals of the performing arts and also incorporates innovations to extend the collaboration system and make its management more effective.
In addition to showing their satisfaction for joining the network, the Cuéllar Culture area wanted to thank their support to the older and younger residents who have participated in the cultural events that have taken place in a "difficult and strange Christmas", in addition to congratulating them for their respect for the established norms and for the illusion that the little ones showed in the arrival of Santa Claus and the Three Wise Men to the town.
Although they emphasize that they would have liked to do "much more" as a parade, they emphasize that all those regulations that were being implemented by the Board of Health have been followed and they have adapted to the circumstances to avoid the formation of agglomerations in public roads.
They also highlight that, when relevant, it has been the local government itself, in view of its powers, that has instituted some measures of a more restrictive nature, "in order to favor the maintenance of the healthiest environments possible, in view of this emergency situation that concerns us all ».
They extended their gratitude to the schools, which gave their facilities to be able to establish bounded enclosures with different entrances and exits for the public, to the Ampas and to the Culture staff for their "tireless work", as well as to all the Cuellaranos "for continuing to attend to culture and maintain interest ”, in addition to relying on the strict hygiene protocols for spaces established by the City Council since the beginning of the pandemic and for responsibly complying with the regulations established in municipal premises. Still, they ask the neighbors not to lower their guard to continue enjoying culture.
A culture that returns next week, from January 21 to 24, with a cycle of Brazilian cinema, which is launched thanks to the collaboration of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Junta de Castilla y León and its project 'Others looks, the same language '. With this film proposal in its original version with subtitles, the General Directorate of Cultural Policies of the Junta de Castilla y León and the embassies and cultural institutes, reveal a small but important range of themes and stories representative of the cinematographic moment of each country, collaborating with the dissemination of quality cinema that is sometimes difficult for citizens to access, promoting a taste for auteur cinema.
During the week, four films will be screened in the Alfonsa de la Torre room, in the original subtitled version of Brazilian cinema, which can be accessed by reservation, with free admission until full capacity is reached. You can also visit the exhibition of plastic artists from Cuéllar 'Puntos de Artista', in the Tenerías room until next January 31.

Information and reservations:
The Zuloaga Museum in Segovia hosts the exhibition 'La Cueva de la Griega, art of many times' on the Project for the Diffusion of Heritage Resources of the Villa de Pedraza, as one of the most important prehistoric and historical enclaves of the town. This exhibition will be open to the public until January 31 and its visiting hours will be from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10.00:14.00 a.m. to 16.00:19.00 p.m. and from XNUMX:XNUMX p.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m., according to the information published by the ICAL Agency.
This initiative is part of the PAHIS 2020 Plan for the Cultural Heritage of Castilla y León, with a total investment of 32.930,84 euros co-financed with FEDER Funds. The sample dedicated to this singular sanctuary that contains manifestations of rock art and epigraphy that illustrate different periods and brings together information and images about the prehistoric, Roman and medieval engravings that it possesses.
The territorial delegate of the Junta in Segovia, José Mazarías, visited the exhibition on this cave sanctuary from the end of the Paleolithic Age, with art and epigraphic manifestations that illustrate different periods of the prehistoric and historical past. The exhibition wants to promote and disseminate this cultural asset and explain in a simple way the characteristics of the cave and the context in which the different engravings found in it are framed. It also provides information on the different investigations and actions carried out to increase knowledge of the enclave, and highlights the cultural and historical value of this jewel of Segovian heritage.
The exhibition is part of the Project for the Diffusion of Heritage Resources of the Segovian town of Pedraza, which includes the dissemination of two enclaves in this municipality: the Griega Cave and the Hontanilla Tower. In the Zuloaga Museum, only the one corresponding to the Griega Cave is exhibited, the complete project will be shown in February in Pedraza, and will gather information about the Cave and the Tower, as well as two documentary videos about each of the two heritage spaces.
The Cave of the Greek
The Griega cave is located in the foothills of the Sierra de Guadarrama. The engravings found make it an essential reference for the study of prehistoric art and Roman rock epigraphy of the Northern Plateau, due to its extensive series of Palaeolithic and post-Palaeolithic engravings and Roman inscriptions.
It draws attention for its repeated human presence throughout history, from the advanced Paleolithic to the Bronze Age or the first years of the Iron Age, and during the centuries from I to III AD There are also epigraphs dated from those of the XIII and XIX. 119 Upper Palaeolithic and 311 post-Palaeolithic engravings dating from 13.000 to 11.500 years have been described. The engravings are zoomorphic in nature, with deer, horses, fish or bovids; anthropomorphic and signs. Post-Palaeolithic engravings correspond to the XNUMXrd or XNUMXst millennium BC and as for their subject matter, geometric abstractions predominate, without human or zoomorphic figures being found from this period.
Another hundred of the engravings correspond to inscriptions from Roman times. The reason why the Roman population entered the cave to make the engravings is unknown. But it is curious that Roman spellings respect Palaeolithic drawings, since they placed their signs near the ancient engravings, without affecting them.
Most of these Roman inscriptions are personal names, along with the names of two Roman divinities. Certain votive-religious formulas used by the Romans have also been found, such as the expression 'votum solvit', ('fulfilled the promise'), which confirms the use of the cave as a sanctuary. The engravings corresponding to medieval, modern and contemporary moments prove that the cave was frequented by visitors throughout history.
Diffusion in the XNUMXth century
According to the information of the Territorial Delegation of the Board, the Griega Cave was discovered in 1898 by Tomás and Llorente, but then it did not detect rock carvings or archaeological remains of any kind. It was not until 1970 when E. Ballesteros and J. Herrera, from the Speleological Section of the Sociedad Deportivo-Excursionista de Madrid, discovered a horse engraved on clay existing about 45 meters from the entrance of the Cave.
From then on, new engravings began to be discovered and the need for an in-depth research project called 'Inventory, study and conservation of prehistoric rock art in Castilla y León (1989-1993), funded by the Junta de Castilla and León in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture.
In 2010 work was resumed within the framework of a new project financed by the Board, in which priority was given to the application of new technologies in the documentation and conservation of the parietal art of the Griega Cave.
The cultural project highlights the uniqueness of the goods and at the same time the high degree of historical representation of both: on the one hand, the Griega Cave, a sanctuary of Segovian rock art since the Paleolithic, and on the other, the fortification of one of the village and land communities in which the medieval repopulation was articulated south of the Duero.
The Project for the Diffusion of Heritage Resources of the Segovian town of Pedraza is part of the series of Cultural Projects that constitute an initiative launched by the Historical Heritage Plan of Castilla y León 2004-2012 (PAHIS) and continuing with the PAHIS Plan 2020 Cultural Heritage of Castilla y León.
These cultural projects use an interdisciplinary methodology and a program of participation and public dissemination. On the other hand, they promote consultation and patronage as a formula for joint responsibility and social awareness of the value of cultural heritage.
With a selfish and rude little prince and a duck with a broken wing that cannot emigrate with the rest of the family, it begins tomorrow, Monday, December 21, from 19:00 p.m., Christmas week at the Theater Juan Bravo of the Diputación.
After the children of the family had the opportunity to embark on the adventures of the pirate Barracuda on Friday, the smallest of the house - and it is necessary to emphasize the term 'little' -, will be the main protagonists of the auditorium tomorrow . And it is that, 'El princi-pato', which is the name of the play that Juan Bravo will visit, is aimed at children between 3 and 7 years old, an age that, both from the Presidency of the Provincial Council and from the Theater Directorate , is considered "ideal" to begin to bring children closer to the performing arts.
Panduro Producciones and Marmore Producciones put this piece on the stage in which two characters, a prince and a duck, discover that there is nothing more fun in the world than having someone to share and play with. The show, which takes place with puppets, tells how a boy of just five years old who has been educated with a heavy hand and cruelty shows the same values that he has been taught; despotic values, which will soon find their counterpoint in one of his vassals, Candela, who is the same age. She, with the invaluable help of a duck that cannot fly with her flock, will teach him the meaning of patience, kindness and respect.
'Unique', the story of a dethroned prince
On generosity and the importance of knowing how to share, also treats 'Unique', the piece that will take the witness on the Juan Bravo tables on Tuesday 22 at the same time. With another child as the protagonist and also directed at the public between 3 and 7 years old, this piece by Teatro Paríso written by Iñaki Rikarte will sound like many of those parents who have seen their only son become a dethroned prince.
Until the arrival of his little sister, whom Hugo himself wishes before knowing what that implies, the protagonist of this nothing unique story was the center of attention. His whims were granted and his toys were his alone. When Elisa was born, Hugo had to learn that, despite or precisely because of this, he is still unique, but not 'the only one'. The company proposes, with this story, a transversal story for parents and children with which the whole family can learn to better understand why it is so difficult to give up the throne when a new member arrives.
Tickets for these two shows, as for the rest of the Juan Bravo Theater children's programming, can be purchased at the box office and on the Tickentradas platform at the single price of 5 euros.

The Municipal Band of Music of Coca will offer a concert of Christmas carols in the Plaza Mayor of the town next Saturday, December 19 at 18.00:XNUMX p.m.
Given that the Christmas concert that they usually perform cannot take place due to the health crisis of covid-19 - since it takes place in a closed space and the public is usually made up of people of all ages, some of them are population risky - it will be a simple performance of about an hour that the musicians have prepared for Christmas.
This initiative is not a substitute for the traditional Christmas concert. The group does not normally perform Christmas carols concerts, although they do perform during the parade of kings.
The Coca City Council proposed to Asier Doval, director of the band, if there was the possibility of carrying out an act during the Christmas holidays and they decided to start this small open-air concert.
“We are living a difficult time in terms of culture and it is difficult to disseminate music, especially in small towns, where everything is quite stationary. The shows in closed spaces are limited, even the preparation and rehearsals of our group are complicated because we play wind instruments, so you cannot use a mask; we have to respect distances, so it is not the best time to play in a closed place ”, says Asier Doval.
Attendees will be able to enjoy different popular Christmas carols under the Christmas lights arranged in the Plaza Mayor. The public will be seated and guarding all security measures. As it is a genre that the municipal band does not usually work on, it is a very special concert for them, since, in addition, they have not been able to perform before the public for a year.
“We have not performed with spectators since the Christmas concert last year, so for the band it is exciting to play for the people again since we are not living an easy moment in that regard. I think that continuing to play and maintain what we have is essential, even in very basic conditions such as doing a simple Christmas carol performance. This will give a bit of encouragement both to the musicians, who play altruistically, and to the public that always accompanies us ”, concludes Doval.

And since there is no Christmas in which dreams have no place, Rosana Vidal, through her alter ego Amèlie, will present on December 19 in Riaza 'Consiste en dreaming', a journey to the culmination of a dream in which the The artist reveals the wishes of the public aided by comic situations, amazement, poetry and even the circus.

The first has specialized in family magic for more than twenty years and has been the promoter of the Infantomagic Days, in which a small group of magicians from all over Spain specialized in children's magic study and research in order to enrich the magic sector. childish. Regarding the second, who started in the world of show business as a tango dancer, his ability to modulate his voice will be able to amuse, entertain and surprise the spectators who come to applaud 'El mago de la ventriloquía' live.

Christmas comes to the Gonzalo Menéndez Pidal Theater in El Espinar
The Federation of Rural Women, FEMUR, a pioneering organization and reference in the defense and promotion of rural women, launches the XXIII International Fair of Rural Women, PRONATURA, through an e-commerce that aims to accelerate digitization in rural areas and innovate the lives of rural women to achieve their full empowerment.
Cúellar does not renounce its traditional nativity scene route. Despite the difficulties, and with the appropriate security measures to prevent the transmission of the covid, the Asociación Cultural Belenistas has not stopped working in its workshop to fill the town and its surroundings with new creations. This year's route includes some new spaces where the portals have been installed.
The president of the group, Sonia Martín, explained that it has been the passion of the members of the group for the tradition of birth that has led them this year, despite the circumstances, to create new initiatives "to keep that flame burning and that love for nativity scenes that fills us so much ». Thanks to this, they have managed to create a route that runs through spaces such as the Santo Tomé chapel, outside, where you can see a Neapolitan cloth; in the cloister of the Sanctuary of the Virgen del Henar, a biblical nativity scene entitled 'Among angels the Lord sleeps'; and in the church of San Miguel, a monumental birth. Added to them are the nativity scenes by Jesús García, which can be admired in a shop window next to the Plaza Mayor, and the installation of the plaza itself, which this year will feature a luminous lamp acquired by the Cuéllar City Council.
In the background appears the wall of Jerusalem, which has eight gates, of which two of the most important are reproduced: Herod's, so named because it led to the house of this king; or the Golden Gate, also called 'of mercy'. Martín explained that the latter has a great meaning for the Jews, since, according to the sacred scriptures, this will be the door through which the Messiah and the liberator of Israel enter. In the nativity scene it has been outlined with scaffolding, under construction, to be opened later after birth.
The president of the group pointed out that all creations "convey something and have a why and a meaning." This year, as a special element, the baby Jesus will wear a white rose, in all births, in memory of Carles Tarragó, president of the Spanish Federation of Nativity Scene bearers, who died on December 1 from the covid.
Martín praised her figure and highlighted the confidence she showed in the Cuéllar group and how every Christmas she toured Spain visiting the nativity scenes of the local associations. As a symbol of their support and appreciation, they have joined the federation's proposal and there will be white roses in their honor at all nativity scenes.
During the inauguration of the route, in which the nativity scenes were accompanied by political officials, such as the regional attorney for Citizens Marta Sanz, the mayor of Cuéllar, Carlos Fraile and the councilor Raquel Gilsanz, as well as by several parish priests and the vicar of the Diocese, Martín announced that Cuéllar will host the national congress of nativity scenes in 2022, something he has been working on almost since the birth of the local group. The president was proud of the achievement, although she is also aware that "much work remains to be done." There is "great enthusiasm for this project", which will allow "to carry the name of the town, the province and the nativity scene throughout Spain." This year's congress, scheduled in Córdoba, had to be held virtually, commissioning. The Cuéllar association was in charge of the moderation of some workshops.
At the inauguration of the route, the priest Fernando Mateo who sent a message of hope to the attendees, before blessing the nativity scene installed in San Miguel. The event closed with the words of one of the nativity scenes and the homage of the group to three of its members, thanking them with a diploma for the work in favor of the association and the creations that have been made this year. The entourage then moved to the Sanctuary of El Henar, where the rector, Carlos García, blessed the creation installed in the cloister of the Sanctuary
During the toughest weeks of the pandemic, the nativity scenes of Cuéllar did not stand still and launched their initiative of stones of hope, adorning them as figures of the nativity scene. Finally they made more than 8.000 pieces, which they distributed among health personnel and volunteers from different corners of Spain. They also carried out more than a hundred nativity scenes, which they put up for sale in order to pay for the materials of the initiative. «Those days when we were all confined, we were united by the illusion of filling every house or every corner of hope, being the star that, as in our nativity scenes, illuminated the day to day of some of those people who were in first class line in the pandemic ”, highlighted Sonia Martín.

The nineteenth appointment of this initiative returns to delight the public with the swing of three great artists and groups, the singer Yoio Cuesta, Pedro Ojesto Trío with Román Filiu and Bestiario, who will perform on the 11th, 12th and 13th, in the Sala Julio Michel.
The SegoJazz poster draws on interesting musical fusions to show the complexity and richness of this musical style born at the end of the 11th century, but does not forget the more traditional jazz rhythms. In fact, on Friday, December XNUMX, one of the most recognized jazz singers in our country, Yoio Cuesta, will present 'Hablando de ella', a jazz repertoire of all time, sung in Spanish. His voice becomes the common thread of a proposal with Latin airs and a very refined jazz. For this work he has the collaboration of the pianists Jacob Sureda and Jorge Vera in the arrangements; and a sextet made up of great musicians from the current jazz scene in Spain.
On Saturday, December 12, SegoJazz continues with a proposal that mixes jazz, flamenco and a special touch of Cuban influence. Pedro Ojesto, one of the icons of the fusion of jazz with flamenco, presents this project with the Cuban saxophonist based in New York, Román Filiu. Along with Ojesto's piano, Josemi Garzón's double bass and Fernando Favier's drums will share the stage.
The concert cycle ends on Sunday, December 13, with a symbiosis between jazz, fusion music and poetry, by the hand of Bestiario. The band has established itself as a voice of its own within the youngest and most current jazz. Their sound takes references from the Mediterranean, American and African traditions and mixes them with the modernity of funk, rock and the avant-garde, in a fusion in which poetry is one more instrument. The quintet is made up of Jorge Moreno (trombone and ink), Belén Martín (alto sax), Alberto Molina (keyboards), Javier Santana (bass) and Adrián Alameda (drums).
All concerts will begin at 19:00 p.m. Due to the capacity restriction, the Department of Culture will broadcast the concerts in streaming in the Sala Ex.Presa 2 so that a greater number of public can enjoy this jazz proposal.
Tickets, now on sale, are priced at 7 euros for the Julio Michel Room and 3 euros for the Ex.Presa Room 2. Both can be purchased through www.turismodesegovia.com and at the Visitor Reception Center .

The Provincial Theater Show reaches its final stretch this weekend, before saying goodbye on December 4 after nearly twenty performances. With Las Magas on stage to represent 'Women who count', tomorrow Thursday, November 26, the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater will open its curtain to a new series of functions that will be represented from Wednesday to Sunday at 19:00 p.m. .
One day after the commemoration of the Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the role of women in society will be scrutinized with a magnifying glass, but with humor, from the perspective of Las Magas, which in a script adapted by Ángela Almendariz They will tell different stories of women reflecting on today's world and how women cope with situations, depending on age and education.
Also with four women as protagonists, Catarsis Teatro -formed exclusively by men- will go up on Friday 27 at the Juan Bravo Theater with a work as enigmatic as the message that the group itself left a few months ago on its social networks: "José Rosario Antúnez Valdivieso He died on Thursday XX of XX of 19XX at 8X years of age./ DEP / His wife Nazaria, political sisters Daría and Aurori and their maid Ulpiana will appreciate the attendance at the wake that will take place on November 27 at the Juan Bravo theater in Segovia Likewise, they beg that they turn off their mobile phones and keep the silence and decorum that such an act implies. " Thus, whoever wants to decipher the continent of the obituary must attend the wake and discover what this contemporary comic farce entitled 'Atra bilis (when we are calmer ...)', whose author is the contemporary playwright Laia Ripoll, is buried.
The funeral of José Rosario Antúnez will give way on Saturday to political debate, the questioning of tradition and the acceptance of coexistence and respect between people. Under these premises, 'A zero to the left' will present before the public a middle-class family that, in full democratic transition, receives the father after a long time in prison. With humor as the predominant note, the man will have to learn to live together, bearing in mind that neither his family nor his country are what they were.
Finally, to close Sunday, the Zereia group, which was forced to cancel its performance of 'The Women's League' on the 6th, will be able to make its work known to the public through the play 'The Product' , directed by Fernando Cárdaba, which shows, through exaggeration and sarcasm, a Manichean version of a certain way of arriving at politics away from good practice. The representation is divided into two parts and, while the first shows a crazy way of preparing the candidacy for the elections, the second shows an already consolidated politics receiving the visit of the devil and his temptations.
With these four functions the Provincial Show will only have one more appointment; the next Friday, December 4, with the participation of La Herradura Teatro and its piece 'Baby a la carte', whose tickets, like those of the rest of the Show, can be purchased for 4 euros at the Juan box office Bravo and on the Tickentradas platform.

After a short but intense week of the Provincial Show with performances by Tempus Gaudi and Rodina, the amateur theater cycle returns this week to the stage of the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater with four works in which, once again, comedy will be the common denominator of all, except for the one represented by Los Mirmidones, which once again will bet on the Greek tragedy.
'This Sunday there is no cinema' will be the piece that, with La Alborada de Hontoria as the protagonist, inaugurates the laugh therapy between the theater seats. Starting at 19:00 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, November 19, the members of the company, which has already performed 'Cada mochuelo a su olivo' in this Show, will return after eleven days to the stage to represent a work by Jaime Salom which, adapted and directed by Rufino Bravo, presents the daughter of a mayor who is enthusiastic about the theater. Seeing that the company that she has hired to perform in the town suffers a bus accident and cannot arrive at the time of the performance, she is delighted to be the one who performs in front of the town.
After the laughs on Thursday, on Friday the 20th he will get serious with Los Mirmidones and their version of Eurípides's 'Troyanas'. This piece, which a few years ago brought Aitana Sánchez Gijón, Alba Flores or Maggie Civantos to the Juan Bravo stage, tells how, after the destruction of Troy, women have been taken prisoner and are being taken to Greece to be slaves . Cassandra, Andromache and Helen, daughters of the King of Troy, Priamo, and his wife Hecuba are the reflection of the humiliation, slavery and destruction of an entire people.
Those problems of Greece in 400 BC have little to do with those of today and, therefore, La Herradura Teatro will return the Juan Bravo audience to reality on Saturday 21 through an apparently incomplete but explicit title: 'We are until the ...!!!'. The text, written by José A. Martínez, shows the problems and concerns of young people with an ironic and hooligan tone. Friendship, love and the uncertainty of the future sneak into a work that, directed by Pedro Sanz, has a team made up of about twenty people; many of them young with a love for the theater.
Finally, on Sunday the 22nd it will also be the turn of Y Now Q ?, who opened the Show on October 29 with 'Mamaaá' and this time they will close the week with 'Terapia', a work in which Rafa González once again plays the in front of it, sharing the limelight with Izán de la Gándara. The script by Martín Giner raises, appealing to humor, the question of who is the madman in a society in which, for people to be accepted, they must think, say and act in the expected way and abide by the pre-established models.
All the works scheduled within the Provincial Theater Show begin at 19:00 p.m. and have a single entry price of 4 euros that can be purchased, both at the Theater box office and on the Tickentradas platform. Both routes are also, starting today, Wednesday, November 18, the channels to purchase tickets for the shows scheduled from December 1 to 18. And it is that, as the spectators of the Juan Bravo Theater will remember, the Directorate of the scenic space and the Provincial Council established, due to the current uncertainty, a ticket sales system by which the seats will be sold approximately for fortnights. Thus, from today you can buy tickets for the Ray Gelato & The Giants concert on December 5, 'La isla', scheduled on December 6, 'Caravan, la historia de María y Manuel' on December 8 , 'E-book 2.0' on December 11, 'Blood Wedding' on December 13 and 'El Tesoro de Barracuda' on December 18. For the shows scheduled from December 19 to December 31, the sale will begin on December 9.

The eleventh edition of the Oenological Autumn of the Caja Rural Foundation reinvents itself with a new format, with wines and Segovian companies as protagonists. "We believe that now it is more necessary than ever to support the hotel industry, wineries, winegrowers, and all companies in the Segovia and province sector," explained the Foundation's manager, Beatriz Serrano, yesterday at the presentation of this gastronomic cycle, in a different setting, at the foot of the Aqueduct.
From today until December 13, the 'Oenological Autumn at Home' will take place, a proposal that will bring Segovian wines to any point of the peninsula in less than 48 hours. A sales platform has been designed on the website www.fundacioncajaruraldesegovia.es, in which lots will be offered with very attractive discounts of up to 60%. Blancos de Segovia, Corazón de Valtiendas, Singulares de Segovia, Selección El Decantador, Cava, Champagne and Alma Carraovejas are the seven collections of wine that will be sent for a month to any point in Spain, with prices from 23,75 euros per batch to 227,29 euros. The selected wineries are: Pago de Carraovejas, Avelino Vegas, García Serrano, Malaparte, Severino Sanz, Finca Cárdaba, 921, Vagal, Pago El Almendro and Navaltallar. The objective is twofold: on the one hand, to promote Segovian wines throughout Spain and, on the other, to boost sales, at a difficult time for wineries and companies in the sector.
Although the stoves were ready so that, starting this Friday, you could enjoy the different pairings in Segovian restaurants, the closure of the hotel industry has forced the postponement of the most social and appetizing proposal of the Oenological Autumn. "This year, more than ever, we are going to be next to our hoteliers and, the same day that the restaurant doors open, it will be possible to reserve a table to enjoy the exquisite proposals of the Oenological Autumn", said Beatriz Serrano .
To ensure safety and compliance with all sanitary measures, the capacity will be very low and, in order to allow everyone to enjoy this experience, the restaurants will serve the pairings for a few weeks from the opening day. The proposals are very varied, from informal tapas dinners to long tasting menus with more than seven passes.
For yet another year, the Pago de Carraovejas Estate and Winery and the Ambivium Restaurant offer a solidarity proposal. This time they exclusively present a collection of six bottles that can only be purchased through the Autumn Oenological sales portal.
A different Autumn begins, but with the best wines of the province within the reach of the citizen.

The Provincial Theater Show reaches its third week of this twenty-third edition with the Tempus Gaudi de Cuéllar group repeating on the stage of the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater -after its performance of 'El Juglarín' last week- and with the association Rodina proposing one more year to the Segovian public a foray into the Bulgarian tradition.
Thus, at 19:00 p.m. tomorrow Saturday, November 14, the curtain will open for Tempus Gaudi to change the Juglarín's tales for 'Two bushels of laughter', a composition of the adaptation of the sainetes' Sancho Panza in the insula Barataria 'and' Farsa y Justicia del Corregidor ', written by Alejandro Casona. Again relying on the texts of the playwright of the Generation of 27 and again under the direction of Ángel Gómez, a team made up of fourteen people will make the public laugh at the Juan Bravo with an amusing criticism of the social customs of life at the end of the XNUMXth century and the first half of the XNUMXth, in which, in addition, the weak end up imposing the powerful in an act of theatrical justice.
With regard to the afternoon of Sunday 15, whose performance will also begin at 19:00 p.m., it will have a less comic and more reflective and mythological character. Thanks to the various stories inspired by Bulgarian literature and folklore, from ancient times to the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries, the Rodina group will give meaning to the title 'Ot Izvora' ('From the source' in Spanish) representing the values of those who drink the fountain of humanity.
The group, which every year tries to teach the Juan Bravo audience the customs of their country through the performing arts, will show through different characters the spirit of the Bulgarian woman with regard to faith and traditions. A team of more than a dozen interpreters and two technicians, led by Veselina Marinova, will make music, dance and theater the perfect combination for the transmission of a culture that is highly integrated into Segovian life.
The Show, which this weekend reaches its equator, will continue next week with performances by La Alborada de Hontoria, Los Mirmidones, La Herradura Teatro and Y Now Q? As for the rest of the functions of this theatrical cycle, tickets are on sale at the price of 4 euros both at the box office and on the Tickentradas platform.

Those under six years of age to the tower and under ten to the guided tour of the Cathedral enter for free. This new offer by the Cathedral for the promotion of tourism, is mainly aimed at Segovians and possible visitors from the rest of the provinces of Castilla y León who are those who can now come to see the Cathedral in this month of November.
In addition, from the Cabildo they explained that they want to place special emphasis on young people, students and families so that during the perimeter closure they can opt for a different cultural plan with all the hygiene and safety measures guaranteed.
The promotion for the guided visits will have an initial duration of one month and will be extended to the rest of visitors from other provinces and internationals once the epidemiological situation has improved and Castilla y León decides to reopen and end the closure. In the event of a possible home confinement, visits would be suspended. The possibility of extending the free offer beyond December is open, taking into account the response obtained and the sanitary measures decreed at all times.
The tower of the Cathedral, with a panoramic view of the entire city, can be visited on a guided tour from Monday to Sunday at 10.30, 12.00, 13.30, 15.00 and 16.30. Through four stops, the first with an immersive video mapping that includes 3D recreations, the visitor is taken to how the bell ringer and his family lived. Finally, the monumental city of Segovia and its natural environment.
The guided tour of the Cathedral 'Meet the Lady of the Cathedrals' is available from Monday to Friday at 11.00, 12.30 and 17.00. In the tour carried out by the official guides of the Cathedral, the most important chapels, the choir, naves, cloister and exhibition rooms are discovered, together with an explanation of the religious meaning and meaning as the seat of the bishop and the house of God.

The Cabildo Catedral maintains, therefore, the visiting hours of previous years during the low season months.
The hygiene and safety measures introduced in the reopening at the end of June are still in force at the entrances to the Cathedral, rooms and tower and include a recommended route, six points with hydroalcoholic gels distributed and the control of capacity in the guided visits.

Attendance at mass is limited to 1,5 percent of the capacity and the minimum interpersonal distance of XNUMX meters and the mandatory use of a mask are guaranteed at all times.
Culture continues to be promoted in various formats and projects from the Provincial Council, which has proposed to convey to the public the message that a safe culture is possible and that, despite the fact that there are programs that for obvious reasons cannot get ahead in full pandemic, there are many others that can be carried out with caution and responsibility. This is the case of the Provincial Theater Show, which, after readjusting its schedule after the declaration of the Curfew and the new State of Alarm and bringing all its functions forward to 19:00 p.m., will again fill the Juan Theater program Bravo de la Diputación during the month of November with a reduced capacity, being the scene of the best amateur theater in the province.
The Exhibition, which was presented this morning by the deputy for Culture, Youth and Sports, José María Bravo, and by Rafael González, a member of the group Y Now Q? will start on October 29 with this same group, one of the veterans of the theatrical cycle, which will once again perform on the Juan Bravo stage - as it did a couple of years ago - the play 'Mamaaá'. And it is that, as the deputy has explained, the health crisis that still affects normality, will let its consequences be felt in several ways in this twenty-third edition: first, in their seats, which they will not be able to see one of those full those they are used to, and secondly in their representations, which will not necessarily be unpublished and may have appeared on previous posters of the Show. "We are aware of the special circumstances that have surrounded this edition and we know that the groups, in most cases, have not been able to bring their members together as they should to prepare a play in conditions," said Bravo, who, In any case, he thanked the twelve groups participating in this edition for their efforts, both for the seven that will present a new production and for those who have chosen to rescue a piece already performed in previous years.
In addition, the vice president of the Diputación also wanted to dedicate a few words of appreciation and affection towards the members of Nuevos Horizontes de Fundación Personas, who in principle had a performance scheduled, but finally, due to the added complications that the setting has on stage of their representation, they have chosen to postpone their participation to the next edition. "We will miss them, since they are also fixed in the programming of each year and with their functions they show us that the Provincial Show is, in addition, an inclusive project in which all the people of the province interested in the performing arts have a place "said José María Bravo.
Among the groups that will finally occupy the eighteen appointments reserved from Thursday to Sunday for the Show are veterans -with at least eighteen participations each- Candilejas and La Herradura; Although this group is presented with a group of young actors who have never participated in The Show and who will debut on November 21 with 'We are up to ... ¡¡¡' and will return to the Juan Bravo stage to close the Show on December 4 with 'Baby a la carte'.
They will not, however, be the only group to play twice in this twenty-third edition, since Los Mirmidones, Tempus Gaudii, Zereia, Y Ahora Q? and La Alborada de Hontoria will also double their presence on the stage of the Theater with works in which comedy will prevail and that are signed, both by well-known playwrights from different times such as Plauto, Alejandro Casona, or Alberto Miralles, as well as by the members of the amateur theater groups of the province.
Mandala Theater with 'Matchit @ s', Get in Line with' El cadaver del Señor García ', Rodina with the piece with Bulgarian roots' Ot Izvora', Las Magas with 'Mujeres que nosotros' and Catharsis with' ATRA BILIS (When Let's be more calm ...) 'complete the poster of an edition whose tickets will not vary in price compared to recent years, and can be purchased for 4 euros both at the Theater box office and at Tickentradas. "We hope that, as far as possible, the Theater will be filled again to applaud these amateur performers, who in each new edition prove to be more professional", José María Bravo has wished after recalling that, since August, some of the components of these amateur theater groups in the province are participating in the acting courses taught by Sergio Mínguez, director of Ponte a la Cola, and promoted by the Provincial Council in response to the requests made by the groups participating in the Show Provincial Theater.

Local consumption goes through difficult times in all the localities of the national territory, be they cities or rural municipalities, but the latter have greater handicaps that make producers reinvent themselves.
That is what they are doing from the Center for Tourism Initiatives (CIT) of Cuéllar, a group of merchants, producers and entrepreneurs that for months has been working to boost the town and return it to its place in the economic and tourist field. Rubén Salamanca was appointed president and it is now when, after months of settlement, the first activities to be carried out from this nucleus begin to be seen.
The proposal is the First Christmas Fair of Local Products and Craftsmen of Cuéllar. It will take place at the Tenerías Center on November 6 and 7, Friday from 17.00:21.30 p.m. to 11.00:14.30 p.m. and Saturday from XNUMX:XNUMX a.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m. It aims to welcome all the producers, artisans and merchants of the town who have a lot to offer at any time of the year, but even more so now that certain dates are approaching.
The specific objective of the fair is to publicize the products that are produced and marketed in the town. The public to whom the fair is directed is from the private consumer to companies; The gifts and presents from these are brought to customers and workers, a good time to look at local production to support colleagues in the commercial fabric of the municipality.
The slogan of this first edition of the fair is "local consumption: your people win, you win." It directly refers to creating consumer awareness in the town, something that for years has been a struggle for merchants. The proximity to capitals and Internet consumption have made it increasingly difficult for local establishments to position themselves. However, these times left by the global pandemic seem to awaken the population and create that awareness that if the population consumes in their locality, the benefit is also for the neighborhood in general. It is about establishing the concept and that before consuming online, the possibilities in the municipality are contemplated, which has so much to show.
The CIT laid its foundations just before the pandemic was declared with a clear goal: to be the basis of associations, a reunification that, although it has a tourist purpose, can boost the local and regional economy. The movement of the Center for Tourism Initiatives begins, waiting for a pleasant response from the neighbors.

Fourteen hotel establishments, four of them in the province (Marugán, Real Sitio de San Ildefonso, El Espinar and El Arenal de Orejana), are part of the Route of Tapas, Peketapas and Cocktails in Segovia. The Industrial Association of Segovian Hoteliers (AIHS), which organizes this initiative, with the main sponsorship of Mahou and the collaboration, among others, of the Department of Culture and Tourism of the Segovian City Council and Prodestur from the Provincial Council, has set aside this year the competitive nature or contest to propose a tasting of elaborate gastronomic proposals around the figure of San Frutos.
The president and vice president of AIHS, Enrique Cañada and Jesús Castellanos, respectively, accompanied by Gina Aguiar, councilor for Culture and Tourism of Segovia, by Magdalena Rodríguez, provincial deputy delegate of Prodestur and Marco Antonio Figueroa, from Coca Cola, have presented this route gastronomic that will take place from tomorrow, Friday, the 16th until Monday, October 26, a public holiday in the capital.
The tapas proposals are very varied: some traditional, such as 'Lomo de la sierra with potatoes from the garden' to others that reinvent a traditional dish such as HRP 2020 (a crunchy cylinder of parmentier and minced meat on Valseca hummus and fried egg cream, an innovation from the fried egg with mincemeat), or the most sophisticated, of the type 'Boletus marmalade toast with balsamic reduction of dark chocolate'
Those responsible for the hospitality sector, who have been joined by the managing director of the group, Javier García Crespo, have insisted that this tasting route with a menu consisting of 18 tapas, 4 peketapas and 6 cocktails also included in Route II Royal Bliss, promoted by Coca Cola, is an invitation to Segovians and visitors "to go out and visit the hospitality establishments, also creating synergies between those in the capital and those in the province."
One of the objectives is to remove the fear of tasting tapas inside bars and restaurants, in a bar or dining room, in order to energize the city, the province and ultimately the local economy.
Castellanos, who from AIHS leads the delegation of bars and restaurants, has insisted that the hotel industry in Segovia is among those that in the whole of Spain is better facing the pandemic situation in terms of security. In this sense, he affirmed that the statistical information from the health authorities indicates that in the province "I do not know if I dare to say that no outbreak but practically none is linked to the hotel industry."
Those responsible for the Association of Hoteliers affirm that the sector scrupulously complies with one of the protocols, established by the health authorities, more stringent in Europe. They remember, for example, compliance with the gauges and the safety distance inside establishments, in addition to cleaning and disinfection measures, use of masks, hydroalcoholic gels, special mats, cleaning tables in each use with approved products, etc.
They also point out that the hospitality industry "is being the paganini" of the pandemic, "the one that pays for the broken dishes, when in places where very restrictive measures have been established - Catalonia yesterday - there are still outbreaks."

The Provincial Council continues to bet on promoting a safe culture and this afternoon, together with the Esteban Vicente Museum of Contemporary Art, will inaugurate, with an act that will be broadcast live, starting at 19:00 p.m., through the web and networks social, the exhibition 'De lo ineffable. Esteban Vicente seen by Patricia Azcárate ', which, sponsored by the provincial institution, starts the project' Esteban Vicente seen by ... '. This initiative, which aims to be projected in time, as stated by the president of the provincial institution and president of the Museum Consortium, Miguel Ángel de Vicente, in the presentation to the media, which took place this morning, is about Relate and reinterpret the work of the artist from Turega with that of a guest artist from Segovia, whose work has points of convergence with the artistic thought of Esteban Vicente himself.
One of the reasons that make Patricia Azcárate, from Madrid living in Segovia for nearly three decades, the ideal artist to start this project is possibly the relationship that both have with nature and the landscape that surrounds them as a creative stimulus. Furthermore, as Ana Doldán, director of the Museum explains, in the presentation of the catalog of the exhibition, both Esteban Vicente and Patricia Azcárate "create out of an innate need to discover something; out of an internal search impulse in which the forms are they find them somewhere and the artist travels internally towards them to capture and express them through his work ", something that is reflected in an exhibition that respectfully relates color, shape and texture to each other. Not in vain, Miguel Ángel de Vicente thanked Patricia Azcárate, and in reference to this respectful bond, "her courage for accepting the challenge with such fidelity, not only towards Vicente, but towards herself" and congratulated her for "the subtle way of relating his work with that of Esteban Vicente, allowing an open, not forced reading of both languages ".
Along three defined spaces, 'De lo ineffable. Esteban Vicente seen by Patricia Azcárate ', presents a collection of fifty-five works -thirty-seven by Azcárate and eighteen by Esteban Vicente- that, not because they are interrelated and based on a reinterpretation, lose originality.
In a first space dedicated to painting, in which the small layers that create the composition of Patricia Azcárate's works recall, in the way of Vicente, light, color and freedom, the microscopic world, the aquatic world and the Vegetables give way and play in a space described by Ana Doldán as "dreamy", before the viewer enters the seclusion of the installation 'Habitar la luz'. This, which in the opinion of the director of the Museum and curator of the exhibition is "perhaps, the most suggestive and suggestive work of the exhibition for all that is hidden in it", has the sound of the composer Ramón González-Arroyo as an ally , through the musical piece 'Toiles en lumière', configuring, together with twelve canvases painted by Azcárate, the special scenography of the installation.
Finally, the exhibition, which can be visited for free until January 31, 2021 following health security measures, presents a space dedicated to a series of graphic improvisations in charcoal that dialogue with the black and white drawings of Esteban Vicente made in the seventies.
For Miguel Ángel de Vicente, who recalled during the presentation press conference that there have been many occasions in which the Museum has shown the work of Esteban Vicente in dialogue with that of other artists, but never with a current artist, in full stage of maturity and also linked to our environment, "proposals of this type favor new readings necessary for the enrichment of artists and, at the same time, are a reflection of the strong support of the Provincial Council for culture and the development of the plastic arts" .

After an intense month of September, with the celebration of the great festival of the Virgen del Henar and El Henarillo, the sanctuary is now preparing to face other initiatives in which it will try to enhance it as the Marian place that it is.
Although the past has been a very atypical summer due mainly to the health crisis and the impossibility of celebrating the Virgin's procession, among other issues, it has also been full of news, such as the arrival of the Samaritan Sisters of the Heart of Jesus, who since July they have been in charge of the place, after the departure of the Carmelite Fathers who for almost a century have been in charge of its management; and that of the new rector, Carlos García. All of them faced the Henar festivities with great enthusiasm and, despite the uncertainty about the coming months, they are already preparing new projects.
This was announced by the rector, pointing out that next year marks the fourth centenary of the granting of the festival of Our Lady of Henar. It was on August 9, 1621 when Pope Gregory XV granted the celebration of an annual festival in honor of the Virgen del Henar for the Sunday closest to San Mateo, onomastics that is celebrated every September 21. With this, various indulgences were also granted, some perpetual, such as plenary, from the first vespers until sunset of the festival, and others temporary.
The definitive setting of the date of the pilgrimage for the Sunday before the day of San Mateo was decided in the year 1849 and even today it remains so on the calendar. The feast of the Virgin begins to be celebrated a few days before, with the development of the morning and evening novena. The day before the festival the Rosary of the Torches is celebrated, which fills the meadow and the surroundings of the Sanctuary with candles, while on Sunday, the central day of the festival, the campaign mass is held presided over by the image of The Virgin followed by the procession through the meadow, acts that this year have not been carried out due to the covid-19 pandemic. "It's 400 years, something has to be done," says the rector of the sanctuary, pointing out that the Holy See is going to be asked to develop a jubilee year, an issue that is already being worked on.
It is not the only project, since in 2022 the 50th anniversary of the canonical coronation of the image of the Virgin will take place. "Very considerable challenges await us and there we would like to involve the entire region," says García, pointing first to the diocese of Segovia, "which will be fully committed", but also to the rest of the dioceses of Castilla y León, since the Virgin of the Henar counts on numerous faithful in all the points of the community; and even the civil authorities. "I think that it will be something that will also greatly encourage that Spain emptied of our peoples," said the rector.
The initiative and the development of both the jubilee year and the celebration of the canonical coronation can also be a promotion for the entire region, so "we are very excited to move it," said the rector, pointing out that both the community of sisters Carmelites of the Heart of Jesus like him are clear that they want to be in a line of continuity with what has been done in recent years by the Carmelite Fathers. García thanked the Carmelites for their work, assuring that they are missed in the sanctuary and that "on our part there is great affection and gratitude towards them," also noting that they do not intend to carry out new actions, but rather to place themselves in a line of continuity and evolution, "to follow what they too would have done if they had stayed here in the sanctuary."
The canonical coronation of the image of the Virgin of El Henar took place on June 25, 1972, in a solemn ceremony that was held in the prairie of the Sanctuary and which had the participation of some 50.000 people, according to the Carmelite Father Balbino. Velasco in one of his writings. The image was crowned by the Archbishop of Valladolid, Félix Romero Menjíbar, who was accompanied by several bishops from neighboring dioceses and more than a hundred priests who concelebrated the act.
Among the next projects, it is to be found to give much prominence to the festivities of the Virgin, as a Marian sanctuary that is Henar and thus continue "little by little in that line of continuity.
Since their arrival last summer, both the Samaritan Carmelites and the rector have felt very welcomed by the devout community of Our Lady. Now, they will try to revitalize the sanctuary “because it is true that the Henar offers many possibilities. It has a spiritual and cultural potential of the first order, "said García, highlighting that the Virgen del Henar, also called the Flower of Castilla, is the most influential Marian sanctuary in Castilla y León," the one that most radiates to the Castilian dioceses leonesas, "he pointed out. Not only residents of the provinces of Segovia (where it is located) or Valladolid (where it has a large number of faithful) come to the place, but also those of Palencia, Burgos, Soria or Zamora.
Also every summer and at different vacation periods, residents of the area come who have emigrated to different places such as Catalonia, the Basque Country or Andalusia, which “is not from now, it is always. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the pilgrimages to the Henar were massive and came from all over Castile, she was his beloved Virgin, "said the rector.

Also between jazz and r & b, the 'Godfather of swing', Ray Gelato will arrive in Segovia accompanied by The Giants to play on the eve of San Frutos.
And while the older ones enjoy jazz, the little ones will have the opportunity to discover the great rock songs adapted to a custom format with 'El rock suena en familia', a concert with themes by Queen, The Ramones or The Rolling Stones, to be enjoyed intergenerationally and that, together with 'Ebook', the Spasmo Teatro montage that reviews the life of the book, from the parchments to its digital model, are the two great bets of Juan Bravo to enjoy with the family. To them must be added, in addition, titles such as 'Bricomances', 'The legend of Sally Jones', 'The empires of the moon' or 'The treasure of Barracuda', which will show children the importance of teamwork, truth, patience, kindness, the importance of looking at problems with perspective or knowing how to share.
In addition, between December 21 and 29, the Juan Bravo Theater will celebrate the Christmas Family Theater Cycle, which with the works' El Princi-pato ',' Único ',' El loft of the Grimm brothers', 'The drum de Cora 'and' El viaje de Ulises' will try to bring, once again, the performing arts to the public from an early age; something in which the Provincial Council has been working intensively in recent years.
For José María Bravo, the opening of the Juan Bravo Theater, despite the restrictions, supposes "a thoughtful and safe opportunity that both society and ourselves, as Public Administration, must give to the cultural sector"; a sector that has been one of the great victims of the pandemic and that, like tourism, can count on from the Juan Bravo Theater, with the support of the Provincial Council.

The Pedrazano sculptor José Álvaro and the Navarran artist Julia Cenoz will exhibit their works at @RueMareque, a space that the Galician fashion designer Helena Mareque has built on the ruins of one of the twelve houses that made up the uninhabited town of Aldealafuente.
The exhibition will take place next Saturday, September 19, from 10 a.m. to 20 p.m., and the following Sunday, September 20, from 10 a.m. to 14 p.m., and it will be possible to contemplate the work of artists who use disparate techniques but who share a determined link with nature.
José Álvaro learned to “play with fire and master it” thanks to his father, the blacksmith from Pedraza (Segovia). Self-taught, the beginnings of this sculptor in the world of art began with works in tin and, shortly after, went on to make creations in forging and wood, noble materials that he uses to conceive not only shapes but also transmit sensations that manage to trap the viewer. The work he now presents is materialized in wrought iron sculptures that rise ethereally together with wooden blocks that are cut and rediscovered in impossible spaces.
To conceive her artistic canvases, Julia Cenoz uses textile printing, a technique that, as she admits, “has a lot of magic and little of mundane”, but thanks to which she manages to express herself as well as channel her emotions. Through this artisan process, which is carried out with natural pigments, without toxic substances, Julia seeks to capture not only the color and shape of nature, but also its essence, seeking to reflect on the true meaning of the earth and its relationship with it. man.
"In each of my works, time stands still and as a result something unique and unrepeatable is created, free from all evil", as Julia Nozón has pointed out.
@RueMareque materializes a vital project of the fashion designer Helena Mareque, who, a few years ago, landed in Aldealafuente, a neighborhood of San Pedro de Gaillos that during the 60s suffered the effects of emigration and has been uninhabited since 1976.
"The first time I saw this village, they were simple stones floating between poppies and a blue sky," says the designer.
"I was captivated by nature, and some stones that suggested the great possibilities of bringing it back to life." And so, after an exquisite process of recovery of a group of houses in ruins, he built a multidisciplinary space, open to host different cultural and social initiatives that contribute to the rebirth of Aldealafuente.

From this Thursday until November 30, the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja, in Segovia, will host an exhibition on the work of the Czech artist Jitka Kolbe, a specialist in glass sculpture and design, as reported in a note press.
The exhibition is organized by the Royal Glass Factory of the Segovian municipality, in collaboration with the Centro Checo de Madrid and the Embassy of the Czech Republic.
Artist Jitka Kolbe Růžičková had her first contact with glass when she began her studies at the Železný Brod school of glass in the Czech Republic.
In the 80s he graduated from the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague, with Professor Stanislav Libenský, the greatest exponent of the Czech study glass movement in Europe. From then on, he began his creative career in the field, both in sculpture and in glass design.
Thanks to the mastery he has over the different glass techniques, he is able to provide his works with generally smooth and geometric profiles, pictorial elements based on intense chromaticism and molded surfaces, sometimes worked with matting and engravings that when absorbing light modify the range of shades of the glass and give it different lighting effects.
As she herself indicates, “light is the inseparable companion of glass. Thanks to this play of light, the final effect is defined and the glass work comes to life ”.
Unlike his Czech colleagues who generally use the fused glass technique, Kolbe employs the traditional blow-in-mold technique, in this case of plaster, carried out in a blowing workshop, north of Prague, specializing in high-quality glass. .
The exhibition will feature a selection of works from the Big Vases collection and the Abandoned Clothes series with a social background on the Holocaust. Author's designer pieces will also be unveiled, both in glass and porcelain, called Kolbe Design.
Since the 80s, Kolbe's work has been featured in galleries in the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, the United Kingdom, China and Japan. More recently, one of his works “Gerda Stein”, from the Abandoned Clothes series, was selected in the 2019 New Glass Now competition at the Corning Museum of Glass, USA.
In Segovia there are pictures loaded with meaning that all Segovians can read.
The day that, at the foot of the Aqueduct, a huge carousel with a red roof appears, everyone knows that "they are here!" Titirimundi is synonymous with spring, full terraces and little space to park in the center ... this year, however, Titirimundi 2020 will be different, instructions for use.
We have re-thought the whole event from a security point of view. This exercise has led us to make decisions, which before the Coronavirus, were unimaginable, such as eliminating all street programming, face-to-face workshops and parties.
In 2020 there will be no street shows or public sitting on the stairs. There will be no queues at the gates of the spaces and no buses full of children from the province will come. There will be no exhibitions or workshops to learn how to carve wood. This year the festive atmosphere that the city takes during Titirimundi will be the great absentee, our first Festival without a party.
Titirimundi 2020 has a new protagonist, security. It will be the first edition of the masks, the hydroalcoholic gel and the safety distance. (COVID-19 protocols)
In addition to all of our efforts, the best way to celebrate a safe event is by appealing to personal responsibility. We must all be responsible: the organization (COVID-19 Protocol for Titirimundi 2020 workforce), the artists (COVID-19 Protocol for companies in Titirimundi 2020) and the public (Titirimundi 2020, Instructions Manual).
This will be the year that we learn to go to the theater in a different way. We have put together a guide to help you have a better Titirimundi experience this year.
Despite everything, we have much to celebrate. We keep the most important thing, the origin of everything: the puppet theater. Titirimundi 2020 will be a great cultural event in its 34th edition. It will be smaller, with fewer companies, less capacity ... but with a great artistic proposal.
This year we celebrate being able to be here, one more year, in Segovia, with the puppets.

Next, Espronceda will dress up as the old Berenguela, a thief, and even a monk, characters who will try to deceive or convince the girl in order to give them one of the skins she wears in her car.
This is a small synopsis of 'Espronceda en cueros', the play that will be performed on the streets of the town this summer and that the whole family will be able to enjoy, getting closer to the knowledge of the skins and even to the different monuments that are found along the way, such as the church of Santo Tomé, the convent of La Concepción or San Francisco.
