12 FIBA – Buenos Aires International Festival
2019


The BUENOS AIRES INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL – FIBA is a major performing arts event that reflects new trends in contemporary aesthetics through theatre, dance, music, visual arts and interdisciplinary projets. Presented by the Ministry of Culture of the City every two years since 1997, it is one of the region’s main cultural events, both for the its international programme and for its selection of national productions that will later represent the country around the world. FIBA has presented artists such as Thomas Ostermeier, Guillermo Calderón, Peter Brook, Heiner Goebbels and Jan Fabre, and invites to each edition more than 100 programmers from all over the globe.
 
Under the Artistic Direction of Federico Irazábal, the 12th edition of FIBA ran from January 23 to February 3, 2019. As the first summer edition since its creation, it aimed to expand the production and exhibition of artistic performances outdoors. Under this premise, the new section Maratón Abasto, in a neighborhood known for its long tradition of independent theatre, offered a varied array of cultural and culinary attractions. Bars, restaurants, street performances, musical interventions and visual installations transformed the city into a massive open air stage. On the other side, Ciudanza, led by its Artistic Director Brenda Angiel, offered a three-days programme of interventions at sidewalks, pergolas and public parks to rediscover the urban landscape through movement and dance. 
 
Besides the shows, which will be held in multiple venues across the City, the Festival offers a wide array of activities including workshops, talks with artists, meetings with critics, works in progress, film screenings, book presentations and the Germán Rozenmacher Award for New Playwriting.
