Last chance to see “La Oscuridad, la Crueldad y la Risa” today at 7.30pm. We had a full theatre last night – don’t miss out on tonight’s performance. Incredibly refreshing, funny and 100% Colombian. Featuring English subtitles.

El Teatro del Presagio is a crowd: if an actor is many then 8 is infinite. Of course, El Teatro del Presagio is an intimate, timid crowd, crouching in the dark, among that other crowd of open eyelids and silent fauces tempted to devour us.
We, the hundreds making us, have a partnership of obsessions, a host of authors that blow our minds, a misunderstood aesthetics anthology, a common place called theater in which they operate, are repeated, advancing or retreating to the extent that our reading of the world (that we call indiscriminately and synonymously play, staging, montage, writing and poetry) find spaces of representation.
Our art is based on poor impressions of the world, perhaps vague, perhaps partial; without the pretension of the big shows without the commercial calculation of companies, without the concern of traditional art circuits. We build from the shock and the brief and secret emotions that arise amid light.
That is why we are not interested in presetting a route or adapting our discourse to the currents of contemporary art, our art is in all places and at all times. We are as current as obsolete; our search lies in life and death, we believe that all the past was as good as any time to come.
