Based on the book Carandiru Station by Drauzio Varella, Salmo 91 tells the story of 10 men in Pavilion 9, where 111 inmates were killed by authorities. The Carandiru massacre was the bloodiest ever perpetrated in Brazil’s prison system. The play is not a realistic account of the massacre and focuses instead on the life of marginal inmates. The director conceptualizes it as an anti-play and relies on the actors to fill out a metaphorical set, designed by José Dias, winner of the Morliere, Shell and Mambembe awards, among others. This is the second Brazilian staging of the play written by Dib Carneiro Neto, recipient of the 2008 Shell Award. (All performances performed in Spanish.

In this play, above and beyond (or perhaps below) what I wanted the central themes to be – friendship, the forging of one’s identity as a creative and rebellious act, the rituals and spells of sex in people’s secret lives – a motif started taking over, an issue that has recurrently absorbed me in several of my novels and in every play I have written: fiction and life, the role one plays in the other, the way one feeds off the other, the way the two fuse, repel and complement each other in every individual destiny. Doubtlessly, the stage is the favored place in which to depict that magic of which a person’s life is also made, that other life that we make up because we can’t really live it, only dream it, thanks to the magnificent lies of fiction. – Mario Vargas Llosa (All performances performed in Spanish.

A troupe of traveling players comes to town to perform their “Folía” (follies): a feast of brief comic pieces (tapas-like “entremeses”) that play with classical tradition as they satirize the present. In a heady round trip between Spain’s Golden Age and today, the Folía opens a dialogue between the classic and the contemporary through the freedom of humor, the emotions of live music and the beauty of poetry. Original language and melodies intertwine with fragments, allusions, characters and lines from classic Spanish and world theater. Siglo de Oro, siglo de ahora is an homage, a game, a challenge… and a cocktail of laughter for every kind of theatergoer. (All performances performed in Spanish)   Click here to purchase the ticket.

The Gables Cinema will present two distinct shows (for the price of one!) Bodas de sangre (Blood Wedding) and Suite flamenca from the world renowned Antonio Gades Company on Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and July 28, at 1:00 pm. Captured live at Madrid’s Teatro Real to mark the 75th anniversary of Gades’ birth, both presentations combine for an incredible and combustible performance of Spanish dance full of passion, color and rhythm. Bodas de sangre depicts the story written by Federico Garcia Lorca of a bride who, on her wedding night, runs away with her former lover, now a married man with a child of his own. This ballet without words is the essence of the work of Federico Garcia Lorca, a poet and playwright whose vision here is melded with that of a profound and ancient Spain. Suite flamenca consists of seven pieces of traditional flamenco dance presented with Gades’ own unique insight on the esthetics of flamenco dance. Gades’ interpretation, initially described as avant-garde, is now considered classic.   Click here to purchase the ticket. Times Read: 0
