Nuevo Mundo

In celebration of the fresh new voices and performance styles blossoming across the global south, Nuevo Mundo features three emerging directors and the plays they have selected, for an animated, staged reading series.

March 4th
Choke by Emilio Infante, directed by Alexandra Hernandez

Choke tells the story of Esperanza, a woman who has worked her entire life with the hope of just scraping by. Dealing with issues arising from the healthcare crisis, intergenerational conflict, and the deleterious effects of machismo on familial integrity, the play explores how Esperanza, like many working-class Latinas, does not have the luxury of choice.

March 11th
LITTLELAMB by Bella O’Brien directed by Shyama Nithiananda

Two lambs run away on a mission to find a simple world that may not exist anymore, a world full of lavender and green and far from the dangers of mass destruction. Their human shepherdess, Betty, is trying to get them back but there is danger haunting her. LITTLELAMB is a delicate and tragic story of war, death, love, and the search for self.

March 18th
Noche y Niebla by Jaime Chabaud directed by Kike Castañeda
Esta produccion esta presentando en castellano (this production is presented in Spanish only)

Esta obra habla de personas e historias reales. Acercarnos al dolor de las madres con hijos desaparecidos en México es difícil de soportar. El duelo suspendido en el que viven no tiene nombre, es un limbo que las mantiene en la zozobra permanente. Y no hay manera de paliar ese dolor. No hay descanso. No hay olvido. No hay perdón. Y eso se extiende para cualquier pariente. Pero ¿Quién instrumenta que el desaparecido no aparezca? ¿A quién conviene? Y muy especialmente. ¿Por qué el terror se ha instalado en zonas que cuentan con inmensas riquezas naturales?
