An amalgam of  “all bloods” in one environment. The inevitable intermixing of native peoples, whites and others in a Peru that was until recently dramatically divided, yet today flows ahead with the vigorous energy of a mixed race that covers almost an entire continent, pushing Peru to look at itself, to tear off the blindfold and set off like a modern-day, liberated Oedipus.

Co-presented by the General Consulate of Peru

Roxana loved a Cristian whose soul was borrowed from someone else, and she sought God in an effort to find comfort, but it was Cyrano who kept her alive, almost happy, with his fidelity and protection.

Alicia waits for her son, who is arriving from New York, where he has gone to school on a scholarship. She plans to go live with him, but Gabriel has other ideas.

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.

According to the author, in this play, “a theme took over that has recurrently fascinated me in all the novels and plays I have written: that of fiction and life, the role one plays in the other, the way they feed off each other, merge, repel and complement each other in every individual destiny.” (In Spanish with English supertitles)

Co-sponsored by Miami-Dade County Dept. of Cultural Affairs, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and Art Works (NEA)

Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27 | 8:30pm

Written and directed by Pepe Cibrián Campoy
Miami-Dade College's Koubek Center Theater | 2705 SW 3rd Street, Miami 
TICKETS :: 305.237.3262 | www.teatroprometeo.org

A tribute to García-Lorca, one of the greatest playwrights in the Spanish language, a tribute to the man and his convictions. “Marica” is a pejorative term that beyond describing a sexual orientation, humiliates men. But a man cannot be humiliated by a word. If he faces the verbal abuse with dignity, the insult exalts and ennobles him.

Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27 | 8:30pm
COMPAÑÍA DE TEATRO VIAJEINMÓVIL | Santiago, Chile

TICKETS :: 305.237.3262 | www.teatroprometeo.org

The most famous tragedy of passion of all time is performed relying on synchronized physical expression, in which bodies combine to produce clean and precise images. References to femicide and television series remind us of the continued currency of a play that never fails to move and

astonish us.
