If you’re going to Santiago, Chile, in January, and you’re a theatre, dance and performing arts lover, you should check out Santiago a Mil, one of the most important festivals in Latin America. It gathers artists from all over the world. 2010 is an especially emotive year because it’s the Bicentenary of the nation. Local companies are going to present the most emblematic national plays from the last two hundred years of Chilean theatre and emergent artists are invited, too, giving a renewed substance to the scene. Santiago is a lovely place in summer: now culture, wine and parties are awaiting you. [photo by Jessica Parra Nowajewski]
