Santa Fe started its autumn with a busy cultural agenda that must wait for. How local artists survive quarantine.
Santa Fe's cultural agenda is intense. There is everything to see in the city, practically every day of the week. Theatre, commercial cinema , independent cinema, exhibitions of all kinds and the widest variety of music.
As it happened throughout the country, hundreds of cultural activities that were on the agenda for March had to be suspended until further notice. Those who do not live on an artistic discipline often do not realize the economic damage that this parate can entail. Faced with this panorama, the artists brought to light their creativity so that they could at least stay in touch with the public and show their works, although not generate revenue (almost zero money that can be moved without events where an entry is paid). In this, the ones who had it easier were the musicians. Instagram and Facebook are, at the moment, full of singers taking advantage of streaming technology to “play live from their homes”.
The other artistic disciplines clearly have greater difficulty in stay active.
The ingenuity, which necessarily had to go afloat, resulted in a rescue of practices that seemed banished: radio theatre returned , a format that has been many decades since its appearance, but which was dusted, in the present context, thanks to new technologies. cycles of stories that will be made available to the public, through different digital platforms such as Spotify and YouTube.
There are to say that the agenda to be rescheduled by those responsible for works of theater and related areas, in Santa Fe, is huge. Many of these presentations have state subsidies, which demand a number of exhibitions per year. All this, the actors expect and actresses, which is necessarily to be reviewed.
The other factor to consider is, once the doors of public and private spaces are reopened, how long it will take people, after the current situation of healthemergency , re-trust in meeting, theater and shared moments.
By Now, while everything can be normalized, you can enjoy theater santafesino from your home.
