Project Premiere: luciana achugar's "OTRO TEATRO" at New York Live Arts, April 2-5

March, 27th, 2014



luciana achugar (2013 Performing Arts) presents the New York premiere of her Creative Capital-supported project, OTRO TEATRO, at New York Live Arts, April 2-5, 2014. Live Arts will host a Come Early Conversation on Thursday, April 3 at 6:30pm, moderated by Marya Warshaw, Founding Executive Director of Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and a Stay Late Discussion after the performance on Friday, April 4, with Ralph Lemon (2000 Performing Arts) in conversation with achugar.


Placed metaphorically in the ruins of a collapsed theater, OTRO TEATRO is achugar's current search for another kind of theater; a ritual of becoming; an occasion for communion. OTRO TEATRO, a solo work created and performed by achugar, is a dark rite of passage from destruction to rebuilding. It is a dance that is meant to be felt as it is seen, giving voice to the arcane spirit and desire of our uncivilized bodies. Learn more about this project and watch achugar's presentation at the 2013 Creative Capital Artist Retreat on our blog, The Lab.
