AGUR MARIJAIA “Farewell Marijaia”

Commissioned by the Department of Tourism and Fiestas of the City of Bilbao,  and in collaboration with the production company Innevento, the Hortzmuga Teatroa theatre company has designed an end-of-fiesta show evoking a memorable rite of closure and, with it, has created a tradition to be enjoyed by all. The river of Bilbao is the incorporated into the performance space, as the Txupinera and the Town Crier accompany Marijaia as she sails away in a catamaran pulled by two whaling row-boats in an explosion of light and sound, towards the final ceremony of her ritual burning.
