Add to Calendar 17-01-2012 22-01-2012 15 Times Square International Theater Festival Presents 'The Night of the Assasins' by National Theater Company of the Dominican Republic This play by noted Cuban-born playwright Jose Triana (who has lived in Paris since 1980) is performed in Spanish. The assassins are three brothers who unfold a macabre game, dream about the murder of their parents, develop a generational conflict, and are accompanied by a hatred exacerbated to the abuse of the paternal power and the heavy oppression that feels. The three characters become, unfold and multiply into diverse characters (parents, neighbors, police, judges, assassins); taking the work to a circular drama with moments that clear the comedy. These universal character reflects human and familiar conflicts like the same mentally ill society that chooses to represent, to remember and to review facts on understanding impossibility, universal subjects that they breathe within those dangerous plays. The characters play at being able and cruel. In spite of the past time, they show in them an infantile face, locked up in an imaginary world created by them with a glance of upset and foolishness of its reality. The scenes reflect on infantiles and naive in this simple game and how the game is planned and conscious in the adults. These facts drive the point of the drama even more extreme than triggering the most perverse feelings, when the sadness, the joy, the wrath or the desperation are the detonators. Directed by Orestes Amador, designed by Christian Martinez. With: Mileny Estévez, Wilson Ureña, Yorlla Lina Castillo. The play, originally produced in 1965 in Cuba, was invited to an international theatre festival in France, which catapulted it to world-wide critical acclaim. But it has been banned in Cuba for 40 years due to its insurgent undertones. It is described as the most frequently produced Latin American play in the Spanish-speaking world, which has historically been ruled largely by dictatorships. Reviewing a production at INTAR in 2000, The New York Times (Lawrence Van Gelder) wrote, "If there is anything to be said for repression, it is that it breeds brave, worthy art, and 'Night of the Assassins' is but one more example." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=101679 Theatre 500 true DD/MM/YYYY
