New Theatre from Spain with Luz Arcas

at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center

Monday 20 May 2019

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center in New York City presented New Theatre from Spain with Luz Arcas livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Monday 20 May at 3:30 p.m. PDT (San Francisco UTC-7) / 6:30 p.m. EDT (New York UTC-4) / 22:30 UTC+0 / 11:30 p.m. BST (London UTC+1).

New Theatre from Spain presents the works of Spanish contemporary artists who defy the boundaries between disciplines, including Angélica Liddell, Sara Molina, Marc Caellas, and companies La Tristura, La Phármaco, and Vértebro.  Curated by Mara Valderrama, Ana Sánchez Acevedo, Daniel Valtueña, and Alexandra Viteri Arturo.

Positioned at the avant-garde of contemporary stage practices, these artists combine elements from theatre, dance, performance art, and visual arts, blurring the limits of playwriting and performing, and challenging the status of the text as the center of the theatrical experience. The event will feature reading-installations of works curated and newly translated by doctoral students of the Theatre and Performance Department and the Latin American, Iberian, and Latino Cultures Department at The Graduate Center, CUNY. The evening will conclude with a performance by dancer and choreographer Luz Arcas.

Luz Arcas is a dancer and choreographer. Since 2009, she is founder and director of the dance company La Phármaco with Abraham Gragera. She has received the Critic’s Eye Prize for Dance, the Best Female Dancer Award at the Lorca Awards, and she was a finalist for Best Female Dancer at the Max Awards. Her work explores ideas of ceremony, where all theatrical languages combine into a discourse led by dance.
