In order to clarify the controversial situation that has arisen in recent hours as a result of the director’s statements general of the Eduardo Brito National Theater, Carlos Veitía, about the changes in the dress code to attend the theater, the artistic producer informed this Tuesday through a statement that “jeans, clean tennis shoes and shirts with sleeves are welcome costumes within those facilities except for the time when a gala event is taking place.
In the text, he also explains that the changes were created thinking of people who finish their workday and who do not have enough time to be able to comply with a specific wardrobe, “so we allow a somewhat flexible way of dressing”, although they warn not “take things to the extreme: a gentleman in shorts may not enter the room and ladies must maintain a decent style of dress.”
On the other hand, Veitía also invited the public to approach the theater “with personal dignity” and make it part of it, in addition to respect the start times of the activities “otherwise you lose all the right of admission.”
“I see people who are looking for other things that are not relevant, because what is relevant here is art, supporting art, bringing people closer to art, not talking about which shoe is so-and-so wearing, or which pants are perencejo or if that one came with a shorter mini,” Veitía told LISTÍN DIARIO.
the garments forbidden in the theater are ripped or torn jeans; t-shirts or tank tops; shorts or Bermuda shorts; caps; visible underwear; flip flops; flip flops; and transparent clothing.
