The Literature Nobel Prize-winning, Gabriel García Márquez, will be honored at a cultural activity that will take place on November 14 and 15 in Havana’s Casa de las Americas, Gustavo Adolfo Bell, ambassador of Colombia in Cuba, said.
This new tribute is due to all that the Caribbean, and especially Cuba, has meant in the life and work of Gabo, “who taught Colombians to rediscover ourselves in a more Caribbean dimension,” he stated.
Bell announced that the attendees could enjoy a series of panels that collect passages which demonstrate the presence of the region in García Márquez´s universe, while it will also be exhibitedillustrations of his literary work as part of a contest involving some 300 artists.
We will also make a workshop on his work, which will be attended by the renowned Colombian intellectual Conrado Zuluaga, one of the greatest experts on GarcíaMárquez, and will project all the documentaries that have been made on Gabo, he added.
He also noted that the actress Laura Garcia, the first that brought to theather ¨Diatriba de amor contra un hombre sentado,¨ the only theater text written by the author of Love in the Time of Cholera, will make a dramatic reading during the event.
It will be a tribute in the Casa de las Americas that will be covered with yellow butterflies that presaged the arrival of Mauricio Babilonia, in which has become his masterpiece, One Hundred Years of Solitude.
