The Kukai Dantza dance company will perform at this year’s Veranos de la Villa Festival in Madrid, with support from the Etxepare Basque Institute.

Kukai Dantza will perform ´Raquetistas´ on 18 and 19 July at the Residencia de Estudiantes student housing in Chamartín, paying tribute to Basque female ‘racqueteers’. The show will bring the experiences and testimonies of several women tennis players through the Kukai dancers, live music, and narration by Ane Igartiburu. The play commemorates the presence of these sportswomen in the Chamberrí Jai-Alai fronton court in Madrid.

Free admission. Invitations can be downloaded here.

The 39th Veranos de la Villa Festival will offer a two-month programme packed with concerts, plays, dance, zarzuela, circus, exhibitions and children´s activities. Two Basque companies will be featured this year: Kukai Dantza and Ttanttaka Teatroa.
