21 Nov

The rehearsal process has been physically intense and rewarding. Having this experience to work with Gisela Cardenas (director) on awaking our impulses as actors has made us explore our potential as an
ensemble.

The relevance of doing a Greek tragedy in today’s reality of gangs and cycles of violence, makes us examen the idea of destiny, fate and free choice in a different light.  Do all civilizations as these questions of themselves when violence erupts?  I am fascinated when theatre puts us face to face with society.  This is the reason we do theatre.
