MEXICO CITY, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Performers from France, Colombia and Mexico will star in the fourth edition of Theater Nights, a Mexico City cultural festival, which runs from Wednesday until Oct. 26.

Among the plays to be closely watched are French director Jean-Frederic Chevalier's "A breaking down and a multiplication of tissue," Colombian director Victor Vivescas's "Heteroglosias," and "Police-Machine" by Joseph Danan, another French director, the Mexican National Arts and Culture Council said in a statement on Wednesday.

Mexico will be represented by director Ruben Ortiz with his work "what else to talk about," which focuses on the victims of the nation's drug-linked crimes.

During the festival, the directors will host master classes in which they will discuss the new direction that theater has taken since the start of the decade.

"With these functions, the audience can learn a bit about the new stage proposals which aim to open up a new concept of montage and the communication between actor, director and the public," said the National Arts and Culture Council.
