Changes in international programming for CASA 2013
Tuesday, August 27th, 2013
Actress Nidia Telles (Uruguay) cancels her trip to the UK and her performances as part of CASA Latin American Theatre Festival 2013 (CASA). Susana Lastreto joins the programme in her place.
It is with great sadness that Nidia Telles announced the cancellation of her trip to London, scheduled for the end of September 2013. The eminent Uruguayan actress was set to perform her award-winning show El País de las Maravillas (Wanderland) at CASA 2013.
“Due to an unexpected surgical intervention, the October performances of El País de las Maravillas (Wanderland) have had to be cancelled. The company regrets any inconvenience this force majeure may cause and aims to fulfill its commitment to the festival in the future.” expressed Nidia Telles.
Artistic Director of CASA Latin American Theatre Festival, Daniel Goldman said: “We wish Nidia and her family our best wishes and a healthy recovery and we look forward to welcoming her to the UK to perform at CASA in the very near future. But as is often the way, every setback can be transformed into a new opportunity and it therefore gives me great pleasure to invite Argentine storyteller Susana Lastreto to perform her moving and very funny one woman show Noche de verano lejos de los Andes o diálogos con mi dentista at CASA 2013 in the slot previously held by Nidia Telles. It’s a wonderful play about searching for home away from home and fits perfectly into what I believe to be our best programme of Latin American theatre to date.”
