April is here and that means the return of ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Festival, back at HOME for its 24th year with a host of exciting theatre shows, UK cinema premieres and a brand new art exhibition.
¡Viva! theatre highlights include The Tiger Lillies’ Day of the Dead musical tale Corrido de la Sangre and Lola Arias’ critically-acclaimed look at Falklands/Malvinas war veterans, Minefield. Our main gallery plays host to Louis Henderson’s Overtures, a film installation exploring the complexities of both translation (from French to Créole) and fiction when looking at Haitian history; whilst our cinemas host a massive 19 films from Spain and Latin America, including nine UK premiere. The full ¡Viva! line-up can be found here.
Other April highlights include the return of Kneehigh with The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk, tracing a young couple as they navigate the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution and each other, with music and dance inspired by Russian Jewish tradition.
