CURRENT PROJECTS

 

THEATER

 

 DREAMS

 

The last piece in our trilogy about the concept of the Self in the West, DREAMS is a play about Sigmund Freud's early career and his first insights into the nature of the Unconscious. 

 

IOVANNA

 

A piece based on the quiet figure of Iovanna Van Gogh. Against all odds, she kept hundreds of her brother-in-law's paintings in her small apartment two decades after Theo, her husband, died of sheer sadness, following his brother's suicide. 

Iovanna is the reason why Vincent Van Gogh's work has survived.

 

MEDEA

 

An homage to Euripides' masterpiece, this is a tale of despair and redemption, set in modern times. Our Medea will try to bring out the ethical and phsycological issues of women who find themselves at the end of their ropes.

 

IN GOD'S SHADOW

 
 

A series of theatrical pieces about some of the most compelling episodes in the Bible -- from the creation of light to Cain's murder of his brother and the seduction of Lot by his own daughters; from Abraham's near sacrifice of his son to the passion of Potiphar's wife for Joseph, her young slave.

 

 ALL MY TOYS

 

An absurd musical comedy where a child's dolls come to life and a cast of characters from the Western tradition interact -- among others, 
Little Red Riding Hood, Lady Macbeth, Leonidas, Othello, Tarzan, Snow White, Zeus and the Biblical God.
 

FICTION

 

ANTONIO

 

A novella inspired by the love between Emperor Hadrian and his young lover, Antinous, set in modern times, in New York's musical scene. 

 

THE EMPEROR AND HIS PAGE 

 

An erotic story about the tender bond that developed between an aging ruler and his young courtier. 

 

THE NIGHT OF THE SUN 

 

The story of a Neanderthal girl who comes into a world of dire urgencies and brings in to her clan the crafts of art and the rituals of love and death.

 

ABOUT VISUAL HISTORY

 

NOT TO BE SEEN

 

A collection of essays about art that was never meant to be looked at, ranging from prehistoric cave paintings and funerary Egyptian frescoes to some contemporary art that has challenged the nature of visual experience, such as Ad Reinhartd's Black Paintings, James Turrell's Cell and Sophie Calle’s The Blind.

 

MUSIC: Mateo Flecha, "Teresica Hermana," circa 1523.  Performed by Hesperion XXI, Capella Reial de Cataluna, Jordi Savall, El Canconer del Duc de Calabri.
