LA PALOMA PRISONER
by Raquel Almazán
directed by Estefanía Fadul
Produced by The La Paloma Prisoner Project in association with La Lucha Arts
A multi-disciplinary play about the reclamation of identity by women in the Colombian prison system. Based on the true story of a group of incarcerated women selected as beauty queen contestants at the Buen Pastor prison in Bogotá, this new play interweaves the ritualistic journey of a “parade of prisoners” within Colombia’s social, political, and spiritual history. The play centers on an infamous woman nicknamed “La Paloma” who transcendentally soars beyond physical and societal barriers to avenge the raped women of Bogotá. Her actions revolutionize the women’s lives, Bogotá’s prison society, and the world beyond its wallsLEARN MORE
BLOOM BLOOM POW
by Genevieve Simon
directed by Katherine Wilkinson
co-produced by Brittany Proia and Emma Maltby
A climate-doom-comedy. This queer rural adventure is an underwater romance. It’s a workplace nightmare. It’s a devastating reminder that we can’t fix our parents. But good news — the algae’s growing bigger every day! Oh wait, that’s bad news for us.
Inspired by the Creature from the Black Lagoon, toxic algal blooms in the Great Lakes, and phone calls with your mom, this highly theatrical play celebrates resilience and joy in the face of climate devastation.
Premiering September 2022 in the Gural at The ART/New York Theatres – check back for more information
