Aluna Café

About the Aluna Café

In the Latin American and Hispanic culture there has always been a place to talk about and learn from the work of other artists. Aluna Theatre invites you to join us in the rediscovery of this tradition by opening a space of dialogue and enjoyment of great works of drama.

Aluna Café is a place to share your ideas and exchange in foreign traditions and new influences. It’s a friendly platform to express your opinions, show or talk about your new creative endeavours and enjoy an evening of theatre and conversation.
