Rubén López: the most important of all in Cordoba
The most important Cordovan is Rubén López. He is part of a group called Venique Tecuento. And he keeps in his memory thousands of stories. The good news is he doesn’t keep them all for himself. Luckily, he has been sharing unmissable narratives.
In homage to all the times he transmitted sensations with his narrations, we want to talk about him. An ordinary man from the city of Córdoba who entered the world of storytelling and to this day did not stop telling. In each encounter, Rubén scatters with his voice, endless stories. Sad, happy, horror and lovestories. With sweetness and patience, the most important Cordoba of all Cordoba draws us with words, parallel worlds.

Rubén is a landscape designer of parallel worlds, spokesman for great characters, painter of others’ imaginations, magician of the word and sorcerer of emotion. Ruben is much more than a quentero.
Come on, they tell you
The Venique T ecuento group has twenty years of trajectory. Rubén and his colleagues invite everyone who wants to share experiences and unique trips. And in turn, they push us to count. It is a set of storytellers who meet on the first Friday of each month, in different spaces. The meeting consists of bringing together people who want to count and people who want to listen. Mouths with many voices and ears that awaken all the senses, gather in the evenings to share. There are many storytellers, and so are the activities. The Venique Tecuento is just one of the forms that narration takes. Among the narrators of the Venique are Alejandra Oliver Gulle, Sole Rebelles and many other personalities. The round is open for all voices who want to scream, sing or whisper stories. And the ways of listening, there are many…
