Platea is the Santiago a Mil Festival’s presenters' week, where Chilean and Latin American creators come together with producers and cultural consultants from all over the world to promote and help diffuse performing arts at a global level. For six days, more than 200 professionals will come together to see plays with an international projection and to exchange ideas, create networks, and come up with new projects through activities whose main theme this year is Latin America Today. The program includes a series of talks, work sessions, and business meetings whose aim is to promote artistic residencies, the touring of plays, productions, and co-productions.
