SARA – South America


SARA – South American Regional Alliance

Members at the 2017 General Assembly voted for no direct Regional Representation to Council, but there has been no SARA Regional Representative for a number of years.

SARA has active Associates in:

Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru

SARA came into existence at the 19th AITA/IATA asbl World Congress in Halden, Norway 1991.

In September 1996 during the “International Theatre Festival of Aruba – FITA”, groups from Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile and Venezuela held a meeting to discuss the possibility of the formation of SARA. A follow-up meeting was organised to take place in December 1997 during the First International Theatre Festival – “FIESTA”, in Caracas, Venezuela.

Mr. Teobaldo Guillen Valdes from Colombia was elected in 1991 during the AITA/IATA asbl Congress in Norway to be the first official representative for the SARA region within the AITA/IATA asbl Council. Later on, during the AITA/IATA asbl Congress in Morocco in 1999, Mr. Gustavo Ott from Venezuela was chosen as the second official representative of SARA to the AITA/IATA asbl Council.
