CASA Latin American Theatre Festival was created in 2007 by Daniel Goldman to fill a gap that needed filling. While Latin American cinema, music, visual arts and literature were enjoying a great success in the UK, theatre somehow had been left behind.
CASA was set up to change this, to build bridges between two incredible theatre cultures, to create regular opportunities for Latin American theatre and theatre makers in the UK.
CASA’s Mission Statement
– To present the very best Latin American theatre to UK audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
– To engage with the Latin American community through theatre.
– To nurture, support and develop the work of Latin American theatre artists living in the UK.
– To facilitate cultural exchange between Latin American and UK-based theatre artists.
As well as the annual 10 day international festival, CASA also has a year round programme of events called Nuestra CASA
featuring UK based performers. These include the Scratch Night, Rehearsed Readings, Radio Plays and the Open CASA
