The 37th edition of the International Festival of the Caribbean began its
countdown after the constitution of the Organizing Committee, which will be
in charge of setting up the event starting next July.
Orlando Vergés, director of the Casa del Caribe, which sponsors the
so-called Fiesta del Fuego (Fire Festivity), said that the theoretical
space 'Colloquium: The Caribbean that unites us' will pay homage to the 35
years of that institution and will once again update on the currents of
thought in and about the region.

The essayist emphasized the intention of representing all the provinces
with samples of their traditional popular culture and the emphasis that
will be put on the theatrical presentations under the aegis of the actress
Fátima Patterson, National Prize of this artistic manifestation.

Vergés also referred to the dance and percussion workshop as one of the new
attractions of the festival.

He informed that until mid-May, more than 600 foreign artists and scholars
confirmed their presence, with Mexico and the Dominican Republic with the
largest representations and the island of Bonaire with a delegation close
to 200 people, to whose culture will be dedicated the Festival.

The Craft Fair that will take place at the Student House in downtown
Heredia street, where Cuban and other Caribbean creators will converge, as
well as the recently inaugurated headquarters of the Steel Band in El
Cobre, a town of Santiago de Cuba, are among the novelties of the event.

Argentina, Germany, Bahamas, Brazil, Curaçao, Spain, Guadeloupe, Chile,
Virgin Islands, Panama, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Jamaica, United States,
Uruguay, Trinidad-Tobago, and Venezuela are among the 21 countries that
will have their mark on the Festival, to be celebrated on July 3-9.
