This year Los Gondra (una historia vasca), written by the Basque playwright Borja Ortiz de Gondra, will be on show at the Valle-Inclán theater until February 19. Through the story and disputes of the Gondra family, the play covers the last 100 years of history of the Basque Country. Basque choreographer Jon Maia and musician and composer Iñaki Salvador have also participated in this work.

On Monday 13th February theater lovers will have the opportunity of approaching this play in a different way.
