Teatro de La Abadía
Theatre, guided tours, courses and colloquiums in the halls of an old church converted into a scenic space. The Teatro de La Abadía is a theatre company and study centre that aspires to make an impact on our social and cultural life through the poetry of the stage. At La Abadía we aim to combine the creation and presentation of shows with an artistic and human search for excellence through the organisation of workshops and meetings. Under the direction of José Luis Gómez, our commitment is underpinned by a passion for words and a sense of psychological and physical balance. Based on this approach, we have built up a team that is accustomed to making the most of a sense of synergy, in line with the great tradition of European art theatre.
Our theatre is based at the former Church of La Sagrada Familia and the adjacent Functions Hall, which have been renamed the Sala Juan de la Cruz and Sala José Luis Alonso. The proximity of the stage and the audience, combined with the theatre’s unusual setting, based on a series of carefully determined dimensions, enable us to share something special with our audience: a sense of intelligent pleasure.
Teatro de La Abadía is a theatre and training centre that hopes to make theatre influence social and cultural life. It has been designed with the intention of creating and exhibiting shows with artistic and human inclinations by organising workshops and meetings and is run by José Luis Gómez, who has configured the theatre staff following the tradition of European art theatres.
The theatre has been accommodated in the former church of the Sagrada Familia and also occupies the annexed auditorium, which have been renamed Juan de la Cruz Room and José Luis Alonso Room. The proximity between the stage and the audience in this peculiar venue, given its calculated dimensions, ensures both the actors and the crowd share the theatrical tension.
