An Evening with Romina Paula (Argentina)
at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center in New York City
The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presented An Evening with Romina Paula (Argentina) livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Monday 9 December 2019 at 3:30 p.m. PST (San Francisco, UTC-5) / 5:30 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC-7) / 6:30 p.m. EST (New York, UTC-8).
Romina Paula is one of Argentina’s most celebrated emerging playwrights, winning critical acclaim both at home and abroad, but to date none of her plays have been translated into English. In her work, she breaks down barriers that have traditionally separated artistic genres, not least theatre and film, and investigates the synergies between documentary and fiction, gender and biography, and love and art.
Paula’s Fauna is a play about the making of a film that will never take place, a film that brings together a daughter, a son, an actor, and a director. Together they will attempt to tell the story of Fauna, a wild but well-read otherworldly being, who over the course of her lifetime transitions to become Fauno. Highly intertextual, reflexive, and subtly ironic, the play explores how to tell the story of one’s life, how to capture what is true and real, and how to decipher where reality ends and fiction begins.
The evening will feature readings from Paula’s translated plays Fauna and The Whole of Time, included in the volume Fauna and Other Plays by Romina Paula, forthcoming with the series In Performance, Seagull Press (2021). Presenters include Jean Graham-Jones, April Sweeney, and Brenda Werth.
