Aluna Theatre, in association with Nightwood Theatre, is proud to announce the premiere of The Solitudes.
Inspired by the women of One Hundred Years of Solitude (by Gabriel Garcia Marquez), The Solitudes is a provocative, humorous, and visually charged experimental performance that conjures the many forces of separation that have overtaken our lives.
Eight women follow the thread of history and the bloodlines that brought each of them to this land, to this moment in their journeys towards home. Is home a house? Is home a “homeland?” Their offering: eight recipes for transforming our solitudes, and an invitation to sit at the table.
This is a protest. This is an act of claiming space. This is a call to action: because a house can be invaded, but home can never be taken away.
The Solitudes’ premiere follows two years of development with a core creative team led by acclaimed playwright and performer Beatriz Pizano, alongside ensemble members Lara Arabian, Brefny Caribou, Liliana Suarez, Janis Mayers, Rosalba Martinni, Michelle Polak, Sofia Rodriguez, and Rhoma Spencer.
They are joined by an award-winning design team of Trevor Schwellnus (Scenic/Projections), Rebecca Vandevelde (Lighting), Vanessa Fischer (Costumes), Brandon Valdivia (Sound/Original Composition), and Victoria Mata (Movement).
One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of my favourite books, surely. I am very much looking forward to seeing this experimental performance because I am always curious to about new interpretations of favourite works.
Mi gente latina, no se pierdan esta obra!
The Solitudes will take centre stage at Harbourfront Centre Theatre from January 7 – 18, 2020.
