My overall impression

With extraordinary emotional and physical elegance, I WANNA BE ROBERT DE NIRO welcomes the layers of obsession, possession, joy, and loss that are both embodied and unmasked during the act of translation. What emerges is the central paradox that every translator—every good translator—must face: how not to steal what must—if you’re to be successful—ultimately belong to you. It is obvious to me that Magdalena Emar knows that the translator’s enormous capacity to love the work at hand is both her dagger and her kiss. Magdalena, Clarice would be proud!

The Dead Guy

A 3662 m 1746159

A multimedia satirical comedy about Reality TV. The audience determines the outcome of down-and-out Eldon, offered a million dollars to spend for one week then online viewers vote for his live broadcast death: How will he go? Only YOU know…

Fantasm - 1001 Nights

The timeless tales of Scheherazade and the heroes of Arabian folklore will be reimagined for the stage as we follow Sinbad on his voyages across imaginative worlds. More than 20 dancers will bring this theatrical, world fusion dance show to life.
