Centro Cultural Teatro Orfe贸n - Movie & Theater Tacna - Peru

Teatro Orfe贸n, constructed in 1848, is Tacna鈥檚 oldest theater. Unlike most playhouses we know today, with rows of seating facing the stage in front, the Orfe贸n was designed along traditional Spanish and Mediterranean lines. The original performance space was the outside patio surrounded by a portico from under which the audience watched; later, the theater was moved inside. The large room with an elevated stage at one end is where the performance occurs and on both sides are raised platforms for the audience. Since 1998 this has been the center for Deciertopicante and Artilandia, groups working in educational and therapeutic dance, theater and other arts. Caf茅 Thespis upstairs hosts tertulias, or literary readings every Thursday night and is a wonderful place to have a local wine, coffee or mate and chat.
