Every day one perfoming arts company closes in Spain, according the sector

The fifth Mercantes Fair, to be held in Seville on 14 and 15 November, aims to be "an incentive" in this “critical” situation.

Since 1 September 2012, one performing arts company closes business every day in Spain. 

Daniel Martinez, president of the Spanish Federation of Business Associations of Theatre and Dance (FAETEDA) has painted a bleak picture for the sector it represents, which has worsened dramatically with the 13-point-rise of VAT of culture. "The situation is devastating," he said stressing the need to "restore dignity". Although there are no official contacts with the government on this issue, there are occurring conversations "with those who have decision-making capacity," said Martinez, for whom "there is only one possible partner: the PP (the governing party), because the rest is pure illusion.
