Maura Tierney, Kate Valk, Scott Shepherd and Ari Fliakos will join the previously announced Frances McDormand in the Wooster Group's North Atlantic when it plays REDCAT at the Walt Disney Concert Hall February 10-21. Elizabeth LeCompte will direct the piece.

North Atlantic examines the role of the military in American culture during the Cold War. The company will also feature special guest artists Steve Cuiffo, Koosil-ja Hwang, Paul Lazar, Zachary Oberzan, and Jenny Seastone-Stern.

In addition to news of casting for North Atlantic, the lineup of shows that will play at the performance space during the winter and spring has been announced. Immediately following the Wooster appearance, Chile's Teatro en el Blanco will present the West Coast premiere of Diciembre (February 24-27). Performed in Spanish with English supertitles, the play, written and directed by Guillermo Calderón, takes place in the near future in a city that is being attacked by Peruvian forces. Poet and theater artist Carl Hancock Rux will also appear at REDCAT with Poesia Negra: Race, Sex and the Myth of the American Mytopia (April 22-24).

The REDCAT season will be rounded out with works by dance pieces from the Brazilian troupe Grupo de Rua, choreographer Rosanna Gamson, and dance artist Lionel Popkin.
