In Spanish with English Supertitles and Synopsis
A classic of queer Puerto Rican literature, Manuel Ramos Otero's "El Cuento de la Mujer del Mar" follows the winding story of the narrator and his lover, Angelo, in 1970's New York. The men try to reimagine the city, their relationship and their existence through the tale of a woman, Palmira Parés, a poet whose life parallels in many ways that of the master Puerto Rican poet Julia de Burgos.
This staging keeps the original text of the short story intact, as a continuous narration comes together with visceral actions and evocative physical and multimedia images in a hallucinating poetic theatrical flow.
Directed by Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya in collaboration with: Eyerí Cruz, Jesús Miranda, Mickey Negrón, Rafael Pagán, José Enrique Rodríguez Arzola, Alejandra Maldonado, Awilda Rodríguez Lora, Christopher Cancel and Deborah Hunt.
Sponsored by: El Fondo Puertorriqueño para el Financiamiento del Quehacer Cultural de la Oficina de Apoyo a las Artes del Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña and the Comisión Conjunta de Donativos de la Legislatura de Puerto Rico.
