Mindelo, Nov 13 (Inforpress) – The 2017 edition of the Mindelo International Theater Festival (Mindelact) was “the best ever”, proclaimed the association’s president organizing the event, João Branco, at the closing of the 23rd edition in the Saturday evening.
“We made the best festival in the history of Mindelact, for the excellence of the programming, and we beat the public record, with more than 11 thousand spectators over the 11 days,” said the same source, who counts the fact that he took the theater to more isolated areas of São Vicente and the “strong bet” in the street theater, returning Mindelact to the city
Now, he added, the “greatest difficulty” will be to keep this level in 2018, but Branco says he believes that after Mindelact 2017, in which he highlighted the work of “great quality and professionalism”, there will be “less difficulties” and “more openness” of the entities to make the festival in the future.
For this reason, he assured the partners that they can trust the “serious work” of the Mindelact Association, which annually brings to São Vicente and Cabo Verde renowned worldwide artists.
