About Matarile Theater
Matarile Teatro is one of the leading companies in Spanish contemporary theater. Since its creation in Santiago de Compostela in 1986, by its artistic directors Ana Vallés and Baltasar Patiño, the company has continued to hone its own artistic language and style.
2016 marks 30 years of professional work, a period in which more than 30 shows were launched, and more than twenty awards and mentions garnered in different parts of Spain and Europe.
Between 1993 and 2005, it creates and manages the Galán Theater in Santiago de Compostela, a space dedicated to the programming and dissemination of contemporary theater and dance in Galicia, and has promoted the International Dance Festival En Pé de Pedra for twelve years.
From September 2010 to September 2013, all activity is halted. In 2017 an impermanent exhibition space in Compostela, saLa Montiel, is opened and Matarile’s latest creation, Circo de Pulgas [Flea Circus], is released. At the same time, previous productions such as Teatro Invisible [Invisible Theater], El Cuello de la Jirafa [The giraffe’s neck]and Antes de la Metralla [Prior to the Shrapnel] are kept in the repertoire.
The shows of Matarile and Ana Vallés have been presented in foreign cities such as:
Boston, Belgrade, Paris, Novisad, Porto, Leipzig, Bologna, Dresden, Edinburgh, Almada, Bayonne, Bucharest, Rennes, Dinan, Douardenez, Lanester, Brasilia, Tavira, Viana do Castelo, Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara.
Matarile has been creating Avant-garde production on the boards for 30 years. Pioneer of innovative theatre in Spain, and an indisputable referent on the contemporary scene, Matarile fosters that miracle in which the spectator feels part of something unique and unrepeatable. Interlocutors are sought, not just spectators.
