Home People As we are Conservatives


We Mendoza are considered closed and conservative. Not only by those who visit us, but also for ourselves.

As we are

 Mendoza  is visited every year by hundreds of thousands of tourists. They visit us for our landscapes, our gastronomy and our culture in general. Even, most of our visitors become happy with the treatment received. But there is something hidden under the veil of kindness: we Mendoza are  closed and conservative .

There are not many who notice that characteristic of us. Perhaps, the few who do it are artists, especially musicians. On more than one occasion the  public from Mendoza has been criticized, closed, that does not applaud new proposals. Or in  theatre . We are an audience that prefers the classics of world dramaturgy and not blind theater, for example.

At the  political level, the same thing: conservatives. Always choosing the historic parties of our province. If new proposals appear, the reasoning is “better known bad than good to know”. And so we wander, always between them.

In sports, what do half the athletes in our province play?:   football  . And the rest is handled into just a handful of other sports, quite classic by the way. Who are we fans of Mendoza?: from the same 4 teams as usual.

A mountain village

 That's what we are , and it's  the worst thing about us . Different sexual orientations are seen of reojo. Vestments that come out of the traditional parameters are judged with the worst look. If you finished high school and didn't want to go to college, you're wasting your life. And so with so many other examples. We maintain the same practices as at least 60 or 70 years ago.

Some explain that it is because we are a  mountain village. The cold, the adversity of our arid climate and the lack of water make us more careful with what we have, without giving rise to trying to change it. But it is our reality, we accept it and we live with it, with no prospect of changing it .

Estimado Exequiel, en tu nota haces referencia al teatro ciego, y como director de la compañía me veo obligado a comentar. Quería aclarar que todas las veces que fuimos a la provincia de Mendoza nos fue excelente. No solo en cuanto a cantidad, sino a calidad se público. Además, la calidad de las instituciones, la respuesta de los productores es de destacar. Eso, teniendo en cuenta las casi 200 localidades que visitamos con nuestra compañía durante 2018/19. Un fuerte abrazo
