The annual Adeje comedy festival, ‘Adeje Je Je’ returns this September with performances every weekend which can be attended in person or viewed live online

3 september 2020
The Adeje Department of Culture has organised a new edition of the annual humour theatre event, Adeje Je Je, which will be taking place every Friday during September in the Adeje School of music (EMMA) auditorium and will also be available online. 
Details of the Adeje Je Je event were sent to the regional government health area in advance, and the council were informed that this type of event doesn’t require specific authorisation as long as it meets all the established Covid-19 protocols.  The EMMA auditorium has been redesigned to meet these requirements since the start of the pandemic, with the health of those taking part and in the audience of primary concern. 
All the performances are in Spanish, with ‘Vivir para siempre’ by the Doble M company, a feminist comedy ‘Calladitas estáis más guapas show’ from Sil de Castro, Jessika Rojano and La María Rosa, ‘Inmujerables’ with Iratxe Menalbert , Petite Lorean and Omayra Cazolra and ‘Jabicombé. The best of’ with Mikal Impulso Cultura.
This will be the fifth consecutive year that the festival is taking place. According to cultural councillor María Clavjio Maza, “We are continuing the line of work that we detailed in July and was approved unanimously by the council that month, underlining the importance of culture in our society.  We are taking about the personal growth of our people but also underlining our commitment to the cultural sector which has been badly affected in recent months.  There are thousands of families in the Canary Islands who live from cultural events and performance and the reactivation and economic diversification is also important”. 
Every Friday during September, at 8.30pm in the EMMA auditorium a different theatrical performance will be on offer, with tickets at just €5 online via (or €3 for access to the online platform).  “We want to avoid the queues that a ticket desk at the door would generate and payment in cash, which does carry an increased risk of infection”, commented the councillor.  “We have a series of measures in place to control the numbers in the hall, only allowing the maximum permitted by law and allowing for personal distancing so that everyone can enjoy the performance in optimum safety”.
