Yellow Dream Road, World Premiere in US at Miami Dade County Auditorium

On November 19-22, 2015 FUNDarte and The University of Miami, in association with Teatro El Público and Miami Dade County Auditorium, proudly presents the world premiere of “Yellow Dream Road at the On.Stage Black.Box Theater at Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33135). This work will bring to the Miami stage one of the most celebrated and cutting edge theater companies on the international theatre scene, with Cuban actors living in Miami. In Spanish with English supertitles.

 


Yellow Dream Road examines the relationship between Miami and Havana; written in Miami by visiting Cuban dramaturge and playwright Rogelio Orizondo from Cuba; directed by renowned director Carlos Diaz of Havana’s Teatro El Publico; and performed by Lili Renteria, Mabel Roch, Javier Fano, Mabel Valiente, and Alegnis Castillo among others. 

Synopsis: Yellow Dream Rd. is an address in the United States of America where perhaps Dorotea Castillo, a young Cuban girl recently exiled in Miami, might live. Or it might be where the Virgin of Perpetual Charity (La Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre) might take refuge, because she dreams too much. Or perhaps it is a place where a group of Cuban actors perform their personal take on The Wizard of Oz.
