The Ibero-American Network of Stage Spaces (RIEE) was founded with the mission to bring together partner networks and their projects, looking to position itself as a solid international platform around the scene.
Formed by 46 spaces, it was born in 1992 as the State Coordinator of Alternative Halls. It began as a research movement on stage creations and projects, focused on supporting and dynamizing the value chain around the contemporary scene (exhibition, formation, residency).
With 103 spaces as of today, this association was created in Buenos Aires in 1998, meeting the need for alternative theaters to take joint actions and finding agreements. ARTEI represents independent theaters of Buenos Aires that provide heterogeneity, diversity, and originality on their productions and teaching methods.
Consisting of 23 theaters, it was created in 2013 as a trade association promoting joint work between its members, as an essential support for the professionalization of the performing arts sector and audience formation. Since its inception, its strategies have focused on institutional strengthening, audience development, and dissemination of the Network and partner theaters.
Including 11 spaces, RECIO was born in 2017 in Mexico City as a civil association looking to influence public policies and improve the regulations on independent theaters, and the operativity and management of public theater exhibitions.
