Historical buildings of la Roma26 November, 2023
There are many alternatives to have fun in Mexico City, one of them is the theaters in Roma, which welcome spectators who want to see different types of stage performances, because if there is something that distinguishes this neighborhood, it is the variety.
The cultural offering of the Mexican capital is very wide, ranging from avenues that are rich in history, such as Paseo de la Reforma, to buildings where there is room for ballet, music and of course, theatrical works.
In Mexico City there are more than 150 theaters, located throughout the capital; However, it is the central area where the majority are concentrated, specifically in the Cuauhtémoc delegation.
The theaters in Rome, the museums, open-air forums and other activities have made it possible for the city to be named the “Cultural Capital of America” in order to promote this type of practices.
So that you can enjoy the part that corresponds to the theaters, we leave you some that are located in the Roma neighborhood, so that you can visit them as soon as you can.
La Teatrería Forum
This cultural space “is a small stage space, designed as a showcase for presentations of theatrical, dance and performance projects completely free of charge and for the general public.”
This is how La Teatrería explains on its official site what the concept of this forum consists of, which is cataloged as the only one of its kind, not only in Mexico City, but also in the world, which has been called “sideboard theater.” ”.
This forum is also known for hosting national and other international productions in its spaces, such as the famous play “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit” originally from Argentina, in which the singer Julieta Venegas participated.

Cultural Center Teatro 1
This is one of the most famous cultural complexes in the capital, both for its location and for the type of shows presented in its facilities, ranging from plays to ballet.
Two theater stages give life to this cultural center and one of its characteristic aspects is that on the ground floor of the property there is a shopping plaza, which allows for coexistence before the performances begin.

Sensorama Multiperceptual Experiences
It is a unique space, which is part of the theaters in Rome, only the conventional goes further in this place, which is why its original concept has been well received by the capital's residents.
On their official website they mention that they are the first sensory immersion theater company in the country, which has been giving peculiar shows for more than 20 years to audiences who want to bring their emotions to unique experiences.
The work of this company is focused on transforming the perception of all its visitors and developing their sensitivity, since sometimes the daily rhythm of life prevents us from noticing beyond what appears to be at first glance.
Through Sensoteatro, a deep immersion is made in multiperceptual experiences, not with acts where observing the actors is the main thing, but with shows where the quality of “feeling, imagining, inhabiting and experiencing” is exploited.
These types of experiences are also organized for other types of audiences, for example, for marketing agencies, so that they can enhance their products, and others that focus on children, where they learn through games and fun.

El Bicho Forum
Although it is currently closed, El Bicho is one of the theaters in Rome that had great success thanks to the alternative shows it presented. This forum was inaugurated by the filmmaker Hari Sama with the aim of giving the inhabitants of the capital another entertainment option.
This forum was considered a place of experimentation, where any project focused on Mexican dramaturgy and cinematography was welcome for the public to enjoy.
Only independent works were presented here, which had to be produced, directed and acted by Mexican talent, since the main objective of this place was to disseminate the performing arts of our country.
