National Dramatic Centre (CDN)


About Us

Spain’s theatre production unit, created by the National Institute for the Performing Arts and Music (INAEM), attached to the Ministry of Culture.  Since 1978, the CDN’s primary mission has been to disseminate and consolidate the various schools and trends in contemporary dramaturgy, with a special focus on the work of current Spanish playwrights. The CDN integrates two venues: the María Guerrero Theatre and the Valle-Inclán Theatre. The institution’s management and production capacity allows it to schedule performances in these two permanent spaces simultaneously while sending its productions out on tour, both in Spain and abroad.

This website features general background information on the institution, current ongoings for the season, press and publications as well as educational activities. All information is in Spanish.
