Emilio Gutiérrez Caba joins the movement for an inclusive culture11.06.2019
2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Adapted Theatre Workshops organized by Fundación Repsol and Varela Producciones. The Blanca Marsillach company are celebrating this milestone with a tour of the play Se Vende Ático (Attic for sale) around Spain. The aim of this programme is to integrate people with disabilities into the world of inclusive culture.
This year's extra special edition is supported by the actor Emilio Gutiérrez Caba. He added his voice to the slogan "On-stage diversity", which promotes the role of people with disabilities as professionals in theatre and cinema.
In addition to the famous actor, the Adapted Theatre Workshop presentation was also attended by António Calçada, vice-president of Fundación Repsol; Blanca Marsillach, actress and producer; Xabier Olza, play director; and the cast members Miriam Fernández, Adela Estévez, and Daniel Olías, who are all actors with disabilities.
The tour of Se vende ático kicked off in February and has already visited five cities throughout Spain. Over 10 000 people have taken part in this project and attended the shows during it's ten-year stint.
