Acting for children in Managua, his homeland

Few people can imagine the scenes hidden behind curtains in theaters. Stereotypes suggest a life that many times is not present in the pain and sacrifice of those who make theater.

New perspectives, different genres and variety of theater groups make up the current Cuban theater. Its premise is: nothing human is alien to art. The Cuban theater has targeted the search for new perspectives and the "so called" experimentation, mixing variety of artistic genres.

Finding a public and essence of being Cuban insular characterizes twentieth-century theater. The triumph of the Revolution expanded the perspective. The Cuban theater is a mortar of tradition and identity. Do not hesitate. That's because we are beings of our time, but also heirs of memories. And the theater also have theirs.

The Cuban theater is a mixture of primitive man allegories, Iberian and African cultural traits expressions. These are the roots of the current theater. The theater is an art form, within the spectrum of performing arts, based on the composition, interpretation and representation of reality, by combining speech, gesture, props, music, sound and spectacle.

Like the mythological Argonauts, Argos Theater is leading the Cuban theatrical spectrum. They talk with the premise of the island's reality. Greek mythology has it that the elite of the Greek youth boarded the ship Argos in search of the Golden Fleece.

The repayment of the remaining amount was structured over 18 years and the first payment of about $ 40 million, was made before October 31. "The Cuban government has paid the first installment and has done soon", said the French Ambassador to Cuba, Jean-Marie Bruno. Under the agreement with the Paris Club the 14 countries had a year to sign restructuring pacts that could include the establishment of local accounts, where a percentage of the money owed would be earmarked for development projects.

The goal is to test the CimaVax-EGF, a treatment developed by the Molecular Immunology Center in Havana. The institute, one of the most important of its kind in the world, becomes the first American medical institution to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration to test a Cuban medical therapy in that country. The clinical trial is expected to begin in November and to involve roughly 60 - 90 US patients. Although CimaVax-EGF does not provide a cure of the disease, it contributes to slow the growth of tumors and is less toxic than chemotherapy. In this regard, it has already shown promising results in Cuba, and other countries like Peru, Colombia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
