With the input of artists and audiences of all ages, Brides (2008) bridged cultures, geographies, languages, and performance styles to say something provocative about an experience that continues to touch the lives and loves of women the world over. Lead artists were Rosalba Rolón of Pregones/PRTT in NYC, Mia Grijp of Sering Vzw in Antwerp, Viera Dubačová of Divadlo z Pasáže in Banská Bystrica, and writer Anna Grusková in Bratislava.
Hailed by critics as “the quintessential Boricua play,” El Apagón / The Blackout has been performed to standing ovations in more than 30 U.S. cities, as well as in Puerto Rico, Canary Islands, Holland, and Slovakia. The segment shown, “De mi corazón” (Of My Heart), from the 2014 Off-Broadway run with Jorge B. Merced and Flaco Navaja, is a typically playful and musical example of Pregones/PRTT’s “No 4th Wall” style.
For March Is Music 2014, Pregones/PRTT honorary ensemble member Danny Rivera, together with world-class jazz-tango fusion quintet MonkTango, led by Konrad Adderley, and the fiery yet light as air dancers of Diego Blanco and Ana Padrón, stole our breath and our hearts! The number highlighted here, “El día que me quieras” (The Day You Love Me), is a classic tango song popularized by the great Carlos Gardel, and also featured in his 1935 Paramount Pictures film of the same name.
