Theater Cuyás premieres the new year with three great shows: Five hours with Mario, with Lola Herrera as the protagonist; Mulïer, of the prestigious dance company Maduixa Teatre, and Red, first theatrical project of the actor Ricardo Gómez after saying goodbye to his role as Carlitos in 'Cuéntame' and in which he plays alongside his uncle in the famous television series, Juan Echanove.
Lola Herrera returns to the stage with what has been the most important role of her career, the Carmen Sotillo of the famous work of Miguel Delibes, with which he returns to Cuyás 40 years after the premiere. It will be the next 11, 12 and 13 of January.
The story is known: in March of 1966, at the age of 44, Carmen Sotillo is unexpectedly widowed. During one night (five fictional hours) she watches her husband's body alone. In that lapse, the woman stars in a particular monologue-dialogue in which she brings to light the secrets of her marriage with Mario Díez Collado, the dead man, a high school professor, writer and journalist; mediocre intellectual who did not know or could not give her the life that she, of a slightly higher class, believes she deserved.
On the other hand, Mulïer, that can be seen in the Cabildo's premises on the 19th after a series of school functions, is a feminist and dance show on stilts with which the company Maduixa aims to investigate the physical limits through dance and balance, movement and poetry, strength and emotions.
It is a montage for eight year olds born of the need to explore the female identity through body play, emphasizing the image, visual poetics and narration to reach the sensibility of the viewer.
And finally (January 25 and 26), it will be the turn of Red, work on Mark Rothko starring Juan Echanove and Ricardo Gómez and written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator, Skyfall).
Rothko was, along with Pollock, one of the greatest exponents of abstract expressionism. Awarded with six Tony awards and represented in half the world, the work is the greatest theatrical success of its author and offers the opportunity to see in his new stage as an actor Carlitos of the television series 'Cuéntame'.
Tickets for these three shows are now on sale through the usual channels that the Cuyás Theater has: the box office and the website of the venue ([http://wwwteatrocuyascom[http://wwwteatrocuyascom
In parallel, these days have also gone on sale tickets for the 18 functions that, in the month of April, will offer the company The Cuban of his new show: Goodbye Arturo.
Asked about the content of the show, La Cubana says it is "the same as always: theater." "That theater that we do in our daily life and goes unnoticed as a theater, that theater that is on the street, in the markets, in our jobs, in the family, with our friends and of course, also socially, where we deploy our interpretative skills in all kinds of acts, "paripés", parties, weddings, baptisms, communions and burials.
In particular, part of the death, at 101 years of age, of a multi-talented international artist, Arturo Cirera Mompou, born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is therefore more than a century old.
"At La Cubana, we have always been attracted to the double scripts we use in our lives, the script that we want to know and the script that we do not, the one we show in front of everyone and the script that we keep for our strictest privacy", clarify.
For that reason, in Goodbye Arturo, "the public will know the true script of the life of this well-known writer, painter, sculptor, art collector, poet, musical composer, playwright, actor and director".
"We can not reveal more: secrecy and surprise are once again the protagonists of the show and the public will discover it at the time." Saying goodbye Arturo is a song to life and how to live it intensely, leaving in evidence all the social conventions and "the nonsense" that make it difficult for us to do it ".
In short: this is a crazy comedy, with touches "surreal" and, as always, will be dressed with the things that characterize us and the purest La Cubana style: with audience participation, music, surprises and lots of humor.
