TICKETS :: 305.949.6722 | 866.949.6722 (toll free) | www.arshtcenter.org

The Divine Philothea poses a battle, opposing forces, a dialectical, philosophical struggle between the soul, the world, the flesh and the devil. Here, soul, world and flesh are enemies, opponents. This approach enables us to engage in a live theatrical game, not subordinated to doctrine, that each audience member may evaluate in all its aspects. (In Spanish)

Two varieté artists, Paulino and Carmela, survive the maelstrom of the Civil War by putting on cabaret performances in the Spanish countryside. In a dialectic of the sublime and the ridiculous, a tragicomedy of deathly fear and fearless courage, the author offers an insight into this turbulent period of Spain’s history. (In Slovenian with Spanish supertitles)

TICKETS :: 305.949.6722 | 866.949.6722 (toll free) | www.arshtcenter.org

A comedy about diversity, a difficult knot to unravel. At a fast pace, the actors discuss the play's tangled plot even as they act it out. The 12 characters operate the lighting, direct the musicians and move the action along. Nevertheless, the story's denouement will be up to the audience.

TICKETS :: 305.949.6722 | 866.949.6722 (toll free) | www.arshtcenter.org

What truly grips us about La Celestina, who could be anyone, is the way in which old age pulls the strings of the age of innocence. At the end of the performance, we are left with a question. That uneasiness, which has lingered for more than five centuries, is the secret thread that connects us through time.

PLEASE NOTE | For security reasons, the United States has severely tightened restrictions on visas and other travel documents. Such restrictions may impair our ability to adhere to the published festival schedule. Please bear with us and keep in mind that our program may change without notice.
