The Vice President and Minister of Culture, Pablo Zuloaga, has presented the new edition to the mayors, which will take its cultural offer to 59 Cantabrian municipalities, four more than last year, with the addition of Arredondo, Cabuérniga, Liendo and San Felices de Buelna .
In addition, it will incorporate nine companies, bringing its number to 90, which will offer 140 shows from a wide range of scenic disciplines, 75 of them new, with circus and mime, puppets and storytelling, dance, magic, music, parades, theater and workshops.
“This project has not stopped growing,” Zuloaga stressed in the presentation, in which he was accompanied by the general director of Acción Cultural, Gema Agudo, and by the circuit coordinators, Marta López and Julio Peña.
The vice president has vindicated the need for this programming, which arose at the time when his face-to-face activity was recovered at the end of the confinement due to covid, which allows municipalities to program quality culture and support this sector in the region. “The new programming allows us to see that we are advancing”, Zuloaga has abounded, who has been “proud” of the initiative and has thanked the mayors for his participation.
And it has had an impact on the fact that ‘LCC Territorio’ was born with a clear municipalist vocation, since it is the municipalities themselves who prepare the programming in each of their municipalities, choosing the shows that make up the catalogue.
Within this cultural program, 18 new theatrical shows will be offered: three mime shows, 14 storytelling and puppet shows, 9 magic shows, 20 music shows, three parades and six workshops.
21 theater companies will participate, with three new additions, and 35 shows, 18 new, along with 24 musical groups, one more, which will offer 36 performances, and 11 puppet companies, with eight shows, two of them new to the catalogue.
In the circus and mime section there will be four companies, three of them new, with 22 shows; Dance will offer eight shows, two novelties, by a total of six groups, and there will be 22 storytelling and puppet performances, 14 of them not programmed until now, with 11 companies.

Finally, 11 parade shows will be programmed, three new, through 8 companies and ten workshops, of which six are novelties, through a dozen artistic groups.
