After two years of absence, the Puerto Vallarta International Cabaret Festival returns to celebrate its fifth edition from October 13 to 22. The unique meeting is a space to celebrate, have fun, dare and criticize each other through comedy, music and acidity, sarcasm and ingenuity.
Since 2016, there have been four annual editions, held mainly in the self-managed cultural space La Gata Foro Bar. In 2022, the Puerto Vallarta International Cabaret Festival returns, thanks to the sum and collaboration between both public and private organizations in the town.
In an effort to increase the scope of the project, this year the program includes some FREE artistic presentations in public spaces, such as Los Arcos del Malecón in downtown Puerto Vallarta, the La Lija Sports and Cultural Center in Lomas del Coapinole, and the Main Square of Ixtapa.
“The companies invited to this edition of the International Cabaret Festival are from Cuba, Argentina, Mexico City, Guanajuato, Guadalajara, Querétaro and Puerto Vallarta. They will debate, on stage, love, sexuality, gender violence, politics and diversity. In addition, the Festival will offer spaces for reflection and learning through two artistic professionalization workshops and a discussion on cultural management,” declared Coral Arroyo, General Director of the Festival.
“The 5th Puerto Vallarta International Cabaret Festival is an ideal place to meet, criticize and laugh at our problems, and reconstruct ourselves through humor, satire and music, which become a perfect means of communication to connect directly and empathetically with the viewer in an atmosphere of inclusion and freedom,” he added.
Note: All performances and activities are in Spanish.
