Antigua Universidad Renacentista (AUREA)

The Holy Inquisition celebrates a secret trial. The accused: Juan Rana, the most famous comedian of the Golden Age. The crime: making various generations of the public laugh with his irreverent (or disrespectful) and mocking humour. The proof: a selection of appetisers from the greatest authors of the era (Calderón de la Barca and Agustín Moreto, amongst others) who featured the great actor as the protagonist. The accusations: blasphemy, disrespect, irreverence, provocation, critical thinking (or a critical spirit) and heresy. Possible sentence: Death by burning.
Juan Rana: a festival of short performances with live music, a reflection on the limits of humour and a tribute to an essential figure of Spanish Golden Age theatre.
