Nando López is a writer and dramatist, and lectures on the Master’s course in Playwriting at the University of Alcalá de Henares. He has a doctorate in Hispanic Philology and holds an outstanding position in young adult writing in Spanish, with an impressive body of work that includes over thirty books, including the acclaimed La edad de la ira. His latest book, El río de las primeras veces, is a love story involving two young women, set after a year when it seems as if nothing will ever be the same again. Some say that you never pass over the same river twice, but there are rivers you cross more than once.
Event for students
The story of a journalist who, while giving classes in creative writing to a woman imprisoned for murder, decides to write a book telling the story of the convict, who hopes it will become a bestseller, but the project brings a clash between two generations of women. The theatre company, Animalien, was founded by Fiorella Pennano and Norma Martínez, who have been creating theatrical and audio-visual projects in Peru and abroad since 2017.
This event is a dramatic performance, taking as a starting point two or three scenes from the play Nunca pasa nada, by the Spanish writer Nando López. In the work, eight friends who have just hit 20 years of age get together for a weekend. At the celebration, nothing happens, and a lot happens. With an Arequipa cast made up of students of drama and other disciplines, a space will be created not only for acting, but also to discuss the work and its message.
