Havana Residents Enjoy Ecuadorian Culture
Havana, April 26 (ACN-RHC) Contemporary Ecuadorian poets of different styles will share their work with the Cuban public during the Festival of Ecuadorian Poetry in Havana, which
began on Wednesday and will end on April 28th.
In addition to promoting artistic work, the Festival is aimed at encouraging exchanges with Cuban writers. Participants in the various activities will receive a free compilation of verses of the six visiting authors, printed by the Publishing Fund of the
Ecuadorian Ministry of Culture. The program includes other artistic expressions, like the Extraterritorios dance show, the
performance of Javier Cevallos with a monologue dedicated to Eloy Alfaro, leader of the Ecuadorian liberal revolution (1895-1924), and the presentation of musicians Edgar Palacios and Cecilia Tapia. A selection of Ecuadorian films will be shown at the Infanta Multiscreen Movie Complex.
Lectures on important Ecuadorian authors, like Jorge Carrera Andrade (National Poet), Pablo Palacios and Humberto Salvador, will take place in the mornings, at the Dulce Maria Loynaz
