CIELOS DEL INFINITO IS AN ARTS FESTIVAL THAT TAKES PLACE IN THE CHILEAN PATAGONIA. IN ITS SIX EDITIONS, MORE THAN 60,000 PEOPLE HAVE PARTICIPATED, WITH 60 STAGING AREAS AND MORE THAN 380 ARTISTS HAVING MADE SPEECHES, WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS IN THE MAGALLANES REGION.
MAGALLANES REGION– The Cielos del Infinito Arts Festival is an event that is held during the summer since 2008 in the most southern cities of the world such as: Punta Arenas, Porvenir, Puerto Natales and Puerto Williams, all from the Magallanes Region and Chilean Antarctica.
Its main purpose is to create and extend cultural spaces for the most southern part of the Chilean territory, contributing to the artistic dialogue and dissemination of national and international artists.
Until now there have been six editions, which have been financed mostly, thanks to the contribution of the National Council for Culture and Arts, Fondart, and the National Fund for Regional Development, FNDR.
“Its 7 edition of the festival will be held in January of 2014. For this occasion we have considered as a challenge to enhance the internationalization of the event by scheduling a large number of foreign shows. We have also opened up a variation of new scenarios, considering spacious public places in Magallanes for artistic movements, beyond the conventional spaces”.
Although the previous festivals have been successful, ticket sales for 2014 have been very slow. Slightly more than a week ago, 300 tickets were put on sale for all the theater, circus, dance and music concerts that will be held in the Jose Bohr Municipal Theater and staged in the former prison of Punta Arenas in the 7 edition of the Arts Festival Cielos del Infinito, and until yesterday only 25 tickets have been sold; that is less than 10%.
The Tickets are being sold at Café Tapiz, located at 612 Roca Street, and have a value of $10.000 CLP. Not only will this ticket guarantee you a spot in the shows, but will also allow you to save $6.000 to attend all activities of Cielos del Infinito because the shows in the Municipal Theater will have a value of $2.000 and there are six of them. The shows in the former prison will have a value of $1.000 and there will be four of those.
The shows held in Puerto Williams, Porvenir and Puerto Natales are free. The workshops, classes, plays and street circus, movies and visual arts are all free throughout the region.
Shows will be held on January 18 and 19 in Puerto Natales, January 20 to 26 in Punta Arenas, January 21 and 22 in Porvenir, and January 23 and 24 in Puerto Williams.
