Santiago García

is a theater director, theorist and founder of the renowned Colombian theater ensemble Teatro La Candelaria, one of the most important theater groups in Latin America. La Candelaria (http://www.teatrolacandelaria.org.co) was founded in 1966 by a group of independent artists and intellectuals who came from experimental theater and the broader Colombian cultural movement. Directed by Santiago García, La Candelaria is one of Colombian theater’s most innovative agents, modernizing national drama while addressing popular audiences. By means of an ongoing exploration of national folklore, situations and characters, they have created some of Colombia’s most compelling plays, some of them through the method of creación colectiva (collective creation), addressing the acute social and political problems of their society. At the same time, they fostered the creation of Corporación Colombiana del Teatro and have developed a number of theoretical works that reflect upon dramatic creation, its methods and languages. La Candelaria is committed to repertoire, experimentation and discussion as fundamental elements of artistic creation.
