For the eighth consecutive year, Valencia becomes a giant stage thanks to its performing arts festival VEO 2010 - Valencia Escena Oberta. From the 10th to 21st February, Valencia will offer a multitude of international and national proposals. The common denominator: the present, the impact of new technologies in our lives, how we relate to them and the current world views.
This year’s creations come from very diverse horizons: United Kingdom, Holland, France, Belgium, Italy, Argentina, Czech Republic, and obviously, Spain. One of the most special features of the VEO festival is that some shows are presented in unconventional places such as parks (Benicalap and Viveros), libraries (Biblioteca del Complejo La Petxina), theatres and other rooms. On February 13th a big lunch will be organized on the streets (in Pont de la Mar).
The program highlights exhibitions like “Mi camiseta, sus zapatillas, tus vaqueros” (My shirt, his shoes, your jeans) by Gabi Ochoa; “Man on wire” by James Marsh and and “Experiencias con un desconocido” (Experiences with an unknown) by the Catalan performer Sonia Gomez. Two theatrical authors, the Argentinian Federico León and the Belgian Tim Etchells who have gained recognition in festivals like Avignon, Edinburgh and Brussels, will also be present. They will touch base on topics such as poetry, imagination, children’s education, the fragility of human emotions, the border between the reality and the fiction… VEO is theatre, cinema, movement, music and performance.
An evening meeting will also be celebrated in two of the most emblematic rooms of the city – Woody club and Excuse Me Club. They are two perfect nights for discovering electronic sounds.
In short, the VEO festival is full of surprises, laughter and emotions, an event that you should not miss. And this is the perfect occasion to discover Valencia, its delicious cuisine, its coastline and its lively evenings. For an economical and relaxed stay, rent Apartments in Valencia.
