The event will take place on Saturday 27 April 2024 at the Riad Sultan cultural and artistic space in Tangier (Morocco) at 19:30.

  1. Antonio Lozano's important career

Antonio Lozano's important career

Antonio Lozano (Tangier 1956-Las Palmas 2019) was a writer, playwright and an unconditional lover of his homeland. His work is the best reflection of the open spirit of someone with a heart divided between two shores. From his other beloved city (Agüimes, Gran Canaria), he dedicated his life to culture, the abolition of prejudice and the meeting of people and peoples, whatever their origins. 

A man who always showed his love for African culture and actively contributed to its knowledge and dissemination. Thus, his hometown will host a tribute in which multicultural affinities prevail over any idea of difference.

The event will be divided into two parts. In the first, there will be a conversation with Malika Embarek López, Spanish-Moroccan literary translator, and Waleed Saleh Alkhalifa, Iraqi researcher specialising in Didactics of Arabic Language and Literature, as well as Olga Cuadrado, head of the Fátima Mernissi Library of the Three Cultures Foundation, and Randa Jebrouni, translator and Hispanist, who will act as moderators. 

In the second part, there will be a dramatised reading of Antonio Lozano's works: "Me llamo Suleimán", by Junior Noubissi, musician and comedian, and "Un largo sueño en Tánger", by Salima Abdel-Wahab, fashion designer.

The event will be accompanied by the piano of Yassine Abdel-Wahab.
