NOCIONES BÁSICAS PARA LA CONSTRUCCIÓN DE PUENTES

(Basics of Bridge Construction)

Written and Directed by Jimena Márquez

Carnival Studio Theater, Adrienne Arsht Center |1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami

Drawing from the intimate experiences of everyone involved in the creation of this play, we have divided Mario Benedetti's story into five "emotional zones": Montevideo, Militancy, Marketing, Exile, and Dis-exile. As peers, born during the dictatorship, we recognized each other in the process as representatives of a generation unable to express itself. We want to welcome you today to talk about things we have not been able to previously, to re-encounter old memories via the story of a grandfather that we have not visited in a long time

MURGA MADRE, Montevideo, URUGUAY

MURGA MADRE

Written by Pablo Routin | Directed by Fernando Toja | Musical Direction: Edu Lombardo

MDCA’s On.Stage Black Box Theatre | 2901 West Flagler Street, Miami

Silences. Glances that say what is not expressed in words. Two characters lacking names, time and space…a remembering (“recordar” – returning to the heart) through the murga. Something they were… or are. Fragments scattered to complete a story. The eternal flow of life. Yesterday, today and always…a show for the soul.

BARRIO CALEIDOSCOPIO

(Kaleidoscope Neighborhood)

Written & Directed by Carlos Gallegos

MDCA’s On.Stage Black Box Theatre | 2901 West Flagler Street, Miami

Alfonsito wakes up with a desire to go the store and buy a loaf of bread or two

To do so, he must overcome his multiple eccentric fears, appear to be like others - like "normal" people - and leave his meticulously organized, dusty home. He must walk quickly down the lonely street, avoiding the teasing of his "friends”, the sadness of the street sweepers and any encounter with the Machiavellian Magalita. Above all, he must keep the red muscle inside his chest from exploding when he receives his bag of bread.

TOM PAIN (basado en nada)

TOM PAIN (based on nothing)

Written by Will Eno | Directed by Lucio Hernández

Carnival Studio Theater, Adrienne Arsht Center | 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami

An apparently ordinary man turns his pain into a provocation. With honesty and humor, he shares stories from his life involving a bee sting, a boy and a dog, and a woman. Rogelio Garcia, winner of the 2016 Florencio Sánchez Award, plays the man under the direction of Lucia Hernandez, an actor with Comedia Nacional in Uruguay. Written by Will Eno, Tom Pain (based on nothing) was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The one-man show premiered at the Edinburgh Festival, where it was awarded the Fringe Prize and the Herald Angel Prize.

by Abel González Melo | Directed by Mario Ernesto Sánchez  (World Premiere)

Amid an unprecedented social crisis, King Ubú is forced to return to the island he founded: the mythical Uba, whose people have rebelled in response to widespread poverty. To top it off, a hitherto unknown pandemic is overrunning the world at lightning speed and threatens to spread into the island. Convinced of the residents' immunity, Ubú launches an unusual campaign to build up the country in the midst of the disaster, not realizing his strategy will prompt a fateful outcome.
