Velocity Theatre Company, New York's hottest multi-cultural theater company, premieres Sonnets for an old Century written by José Rivera, screenwriter of the critically acclaimed Motorcycle Diaries.
Confronted by death, what do you say in the final splinter of a second before your voice is silenced? Sonnets for an old Century captures the exquisite, the funny, the sinful, and soulful moments of life that are often unvoiced. A husband reminisces about sex with his wife. A woman contemplates the galaxy. A son recalls his mythic flight over the ocean to spite his father. A collection of stirring monologues, Sonnets explores the imprint of these souls on the world, their connections to each other, and to those they leave behind. Directed by Marc Santa Maria, artistic director of VTC, and Kim Ima, company member of La MaMa E.T.C.
Special Halloween (10/31, 2:00 pm, 7:30 pm) and Day of the Dead (11/1, 7:30 pm) performances.
