World Premiere of Writing in Sand by Carlos Caballero

FUNDarte Inc. presenta el estreno mundial de Writing in Sand/ Escribiendo en la arena, nueva obra de Carlos Caballero, con la actriz cubana Mabel Roch, la coreógrafa y bailarina brasileña Lucia Aratanha, músico haitiana Inez Barlatier, y la escritura de Griselda Ortíz en el On.Stage Black.Box Theater del Miami Dade County Auditorium del viernes 21 de noviembre y el sábado, 22 de noviembre a las 8:30 p.m. del 2014.

 

Writing in Sand/Escribiendo en la arena, es una producción multidisciplinaria dirigida por Carlos Caballero, con la actriz Mabel Roch, la coreógrafa y bailarina Lucia Aratanha, músico Inez Barlatier, y la escritura de Griselda Ortíz, destapa un diálogo que expone temas de desplazamiento, inmigración, trauma, crisis personal, y la asimilación como un espejo de la ciudad de Miami. Tres intérpretes – una cubana, una brasileña y una haitiana, cada una representante de una disciplina artística diferente – se combinan para explorar esto temas individuales, así como las relaciones que existen entre las diversas comunidades étnicas y artísticas de Miami.

 

 

Writing in Sand/Escribiendo en la arena es una obra escénica que específicamente se dirige a Miami como lugar y como estado mental, con todos sus temas de migración, asimilación y el proceso de crear y mantener un legado cultural. Utilizando la música, la actuación y la danza, tres mujeres – todas artistas e inmigrantes – desempacan su equipaje personal y revelan sus verdades y experiencias personales para crear un tejido de los hilos que nacen de sus experiencias, algunas parecidas y otras muy diferentes, como inmigrantes y artistas que viven y trabajan en la ciudad de Miami.

 

Writing in Sand/Escribiendo en la arena utiliza las experiencias autobiográficas de cada intérprete para explorar la universalidad de la realidad de la mujer artista e inmigrante en Miami, una ciudad llena de inmigrantes en la cual todo el mundo tiene equipaje que desempacar. Esta intensa puesta en escena cuenta con historias basadas en las vidas reales de cada artista, además de la comedia, el drama, la música y el movimiento, combinados con anécdotas personales, para componer un retrato de Miami, una ciudad en la cual – a pesar de que el mar se lleve nuestras historias a diario – los artistas perseveran y continúan escribiendo en la arena.
