Cuban Theatre Day and the Latin American and Caribbean Theater Season in Havana

As part of the activities honoring Cuban Theatre Day [Día del Teatro Cubano] on January 22, Casa de las Américas (Havana, Cuba) sends its first call for its Latin American and Caribbean Theater Season and Mayo Teatral 2012, during which various workshops will be held. Held from May 4 to 13, Mayo Teatral offers a cycle of events dedicated to the centennial of the great playwright and Cuban intellectual Virgilio Piñera.

La Casa de las Américas invites participation for its Latin American and Caribbean Theater Season and Mayo Teatral 2012, which will be celebrated on May 4-13, bringing together a representative sample of the varied work of the current Latin American and Caribbean theater scene. Theater groups from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico and the Dominican Republic will participate for the first time in our event; therefore this edition will be characterized by the novelty of the proposals and the wide variety of languages, with ten scene guest stage performances.

In addition, Casa will present a selection of best material premiered on the island in the last biennium as well as a Piñera Cycle, with staging of Virgilio Piñera’s works, carried out by Cuban troupes and directors.

There will also be workshops by experts in the field, such as Ailyn Morera (Costa Rica); Antonio Zúñiga (Mexico); Rodolfo Guerrero (Mexico); Francisco Sánchez, Pablo Obreque and César Espinoza (Chile); and Lowell Fiet (Puerto Rico/USA).
