Achievement OBIE award winner. Director Eunice Ferreira, Skidmore theater professor,
innovatively infuses the play with multiple languages, song, poetry, film and dance to invite

World Premiere of ARCHIPELAGO

Caridad Svich’s Archipelago premieres November 24, 2016 at Lighthouse Poole Centre for the Arts in Dorset, England under Stephen Wrentmore’s direction starring Nathan Ives-Moiba and Lisa Caruccio Came.

Archipelago is a story of love.
Love found and lost and found …

Love, like the breaking of water on the shore, is constant and fluid. It tells the story of she and he. She is from here. He is from there. In a place that is here and there. One of them is always the outsider. So is love strong enough to hold them together?

Caridad Svich’s beautiful new play asks if love can transcend and surpass the boundaries of difference. It speaks to the moments between two people who are desperately seeking connection; to find each other and themselves in the in-between during tumultuous times.

Deserts (Desiertos) by Hugo Alfredo Hinojosa

Deserts interweaves the stories of illegal immigrants to take a bold look at the violence and poverty along the U.S./Mexico border. Through the stories of a mother and child, undocumented workers, and snipers and preachers, the strength of the human spirit emerges from a struggle for survival.

This translation/adaptation was commissioned and developed at the Lark Play Development Center, New York City, as part of the 2007 US/Mexico Playwright Exchange Program. It was subsequently developed and presented at the 2010 5th Biennial Latino Theatre Festival at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago. This publication is a collaboration between NoPassport Press and the Lark.
