Presentation by the author: María Ángeles Marchirán

María Ángeles Marchirán presents the book "Production and distribution of performing arts. Notes from experience". One of the few books dedicated to the field of performing arts distribution, a profession still unknown and invisible inside and outside the sector. Its author has wanted to reflect in writing not only his professional experience, but all kinds of advice, anecdotes and notes about the lights and shadows of selling shows from a prism that goes far beyond the commercial transaction . An "accompanying manual", as she calls it herself, that talks about the intense and careful work behind the date of a performance. A reference book for professionals in the sector and for aspiring professionals.
