Oct/Nov 2023: EFE TRES Teatro/AITENSO (Mexico)

Pre-production meetings & Conference

In October 2023, PI Erin Cowling spent a week in Mexico City with the members of EFE Tres Teatro and their latest collaborator, Paola Izquierdo while they discussed their upcoming adaptation of La firmeza en la ausencia by Leonor de la Cueva. 

Joined by collaborator Glenda Nieto en Puebla, México for the second week, we all participated in AITENSO's conference "Variaciones sobre la muerte en el teatro del Siglo de Oro." We met up with colleagues and friends and witnessed the festivities of el día de los muertos first hand, an unforgettable experience!

August 2023: Teatro Círculo 

First week of rehearsals for La monja alférez (The Lieutenant Nun)

In August 2023, PI Erin Cowling spent the week in New York City to observe and document the first week of rehearsals of La monja alférez by Teatro Círculo. Among the highlights were the explanation of the lighting and set design by Israel Franco Müller, seeing scenes move from read-thru to blocking, getting a sneak peak at costuming and make-up during the company's first photo session, & hearing how the director Daniel Alonso de Santos and the company's verse coach Karmele Aranburu help the performers find their character's voice.

¡Muchísimas gracias a todos los miembros de la compañía por su colaboración y la acogedora bienvenida a su sede en NYC!
