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.
2017 marks the 10th anniversary edition of CASA Latin American Theatre Festival and it's presenting an 8-week programme with an incredible selection of Latin American theatre, art, music and culture at two of London's most exciting off West End theatres.
Highlights include the return of the Best Production Off West End Award winning Thebes Land, a spectacular programme of international shows from leading theatre companies from Chile, Brazil, Mexico and three brand new full length works by three of the UK's most exciting Latin American theatre makers.
