Ez dira aspaldiko kontuak

ez dira webVictoria Eugenia Theater / April 19th

Direction and script: Lourdes Imaz. Music: Karlos Gimenez. Sound: UHINA. Lighting: Iban Zubeldia. Cast: 32 actors and actresses from Segura and other close towns.

This play about the post-war period in the Basque Country is the result of a joint initiative by the people of the Goierri region, and particularly Segura. An entire town and its region gather on stage with a common objective: to show the new generations and remind those who lived at the time what education and everyday life was like at the time when, despite the difficulties, Basque schools or ikastolas were created.

The script is written by one of the first Basque schoolteachers in Gipuzkoa, Lourdes Imaz. The actors and actresses are the inhabitants of Segura: more than 30 people of all ages. In addition, several of the people who worked to achieve education in the Basque language in the Goierri region are those who recall and recreate on stage the almost clandestine meetings where the first ikastolas started to take shape.

This popular play also wants to celebrate, remember and thank all those men and women who were an example of coexistence, enterprising spirit and humanity in a social context marked by the post-war atmosphere.
