As the last edition (2008) most of the presentations will be performed  in La Sabana Metropolitan Park on the West part of town and some activities will be extended in to San José downtown and surrounding areas.


A number of cities like Limon and Alajuela will be considered as “host locations” for some of the scheduled presentations.

The festival takes place every two years, gathering locals and international artists on a ten day celebration dedicated to a massive audience of more than 400 000 people.


FIA 2010 will count with a large number of guests companies from West and North Europe, Asia, Africa and the best of the Americas.

This year the “Honor Guest” is Spain who will participate with a wide number of shows including Flamenco artists, theater companies and puppeteers.

Local artists will have a space performing before international producers and a market with 100% handcrafts will be available for all those who attend to the event causing what many people call a ”A Festival inside the Festival”.

Besides the fact of offering a very accessible showcase to everybody, locals and visitors, the FIA also promotes educational activities as free workshops oriented to children and teenagers with the purpose of causing a creative participation were the audience would be actually become another performer on the stage.
