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.
