Donation Cultural Centre Azart Ecuador

February 2020
The theatre ship Azart moored in a small fishing port in Ecuador to put on a show with the local pride: Marimba artists. The pandemic killed the show. From a welcome guest the ship turned into a dangerous pariah. The pandemic killed the travel.  Finita La Commedia !

February 2021
The city of Manta in Ecuador enthusiastically supports the vision to put the ship on the beach as an urban theater and neighborhood cinema. The ship becomes the magnet of a cultural revitalization of San Mateo beach, led by the local theater group “Humor & Vida”. Azart continues to tell her stories. The Show Must Go On !

Expected beaching: July 25, 2021

The ocean is at the top. The blue area is reserved for the ship and tribune. Planning of the city of Manta.
After thirty years of free navigation, the ship will be neatly encapsulated between bus stop 8,
the parking lot for cars and small fishing boats, between the trees and bars.
