The cultural roadmap for the second weekend of September crosses the equator of the 25th Festival of Theater, Music and Dance (Temudas) and the apotheosis of its “big week”, but this agenda includes many other musical and exhibition possibilities in the capital of Gran Canaria. In addition, the cultural horizon improves for all restless spirits: for lovers of the arts, the capacity of the cultural venues is expanded to 55% and, for those who are also nocturnal animals, the night lasts until 2.00 hours. We go with the highlights of a varied and diverse creative offer:
24 functions of the Temudas Festival.
The 25th edition of the Temudas Festival exceeds its equator with an intense program this weekend, which includes a total of 24 performances between the Guiniguada Theater, the Plaza de Stagno, The Paper Club, the Plaza de Santa Ana, the Plaza de Canarias, Doramas Park, Santa Catalina Park and Miller Hall. The shows combine multiple artistic disciplines and are free, except for those held at the Guiniguada and the Miller. Its programming can be consulted on the website lpatemudasfest.com.
