The Tempest – Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater and R.Evolución Latina are pleased to announce performances of a new devised theater piece directed by Luis Salgado, The Tempest, the result of creative collaboration between professional and aspiring artists from Latin America, the Caribbean, and New York City. This riveting and multilingual production crowns this year’s joint run of the Raúl Juliá Training Unit and Beyond Workshop Series with a 21st Century Latinx take on Shakespeare. The Bard of Avon’s heightened language meets the rich sonority and rhythms of Latinx cultures, and artists get to bring their full selves to bear on the story’s comedy, drama, betrayal, and magic!
Only Four Performances —Wednesday to Saturday, July 26-29, 2019— 7:30 pm at Pregones in THE BRONX
“The Tempest is a new ambitious goal of evolution for R.Evolución Latina in relationship to classical work done in our own ‘dare to go beyond’ style. Artists are challenged, not only in the physical work, and the use of the Shakespearean language but also in connection to the social and political realities of today. Prospero (the antagonist) represents those in society who try to trick us into the eye of the storm, our work represents how we take actions to survive and come our triumphant.”
