Shakespeare goes to Boquete, Chiriqui

The Theatre Guild of Ancon‘s play “The complete works of William Shakespeare [Abridged]”, directed by Nick Miles in past March 2016, was brought to Boquete, Chiriquí, a beautiful mountain retreat in Western Panama’s highlands, as a one night only play, to delight the local expat and international community, as well as tourists.

The play was held during sunset in a beautiful amphitheatre, located at Valle Escondido, Boquete, surrounded by lots of nature, tranquility and fresh mountain air. This unusual and super fun production was enjoyed not only by the local community, but also by the whole crew, who came up from Panama City for a weekend only during the Easter Holidays to make this unique experience happen.

These are some of the photos I took of that special day 🙂

Point Break Live comes to Panama!

The Theater Guild has a new play coming up next 20th of June, this time with a ‘90s classic from the famous movie “Point Break” [1991].

Point Break Live is a theater adaptation from the movie, with an interesting twist, each night a member of the audience will perform in it as Keanu Reeve’s character Johnny Utah!

These guys over here are the Ex Dictators, “a surf gang who robs banks to finance their endless summer”!

The photoshoot for the marketing of this play has been divided in two main locations, one in a couple of interesting spots in Casco Viejo (like the photo above, two weeks ago) and the second one took place yesterday, in a completely different location, a buses cemetery just outside Panama City, focusing on the gang with surfers outfits only. The photos will be released from time to time while opening night gets closer.
