Caborca in association with IATI Theater’s Performing Arts Marathon 2012
El correo de la noche
August 2-5, 7pm
In Residence: July 23-August 5, 2012
A multilingual, interdisciplinary performance resembling a bad dream about a first date on the first night of an ill-planned trip. Presented as a series of vignettes, dances, ruminations and games, the show mines the company’s real and imagined experiences of foreign cities at night, plunging into our fear of the unknown. Using multiple languages that are spoken, recorded, and projected, the piece exists between our need to communicate and the obstacles that keep us from doing so.
August 2-5, 2012 7pm
At IRT: 154 Christopher st. #3B (third floor)
– Running time 1 hour

Led by playwright/director Javierantonio González, CABORCA is an experimental theatre company making plays that move seamlessly between the irreverent and poetic, the personal and political, and the highly entertaining and intellectually challenging – inspired by Brecht’s view that to be challenged is also to be entertained. Based in New York City and working in both English and Spanish, our work includes new plays, classical adaptations and devised creations. A gang of sorts, we began working together in 2002 at the University of Puerto Rico, continued collecting at Columbia’s MFA Theatre Program, and officially became a company in 2009. CABORCA steals its name from the novel The Savage Detectives, by Roberto Bolaño, in which a magazine of the same name is the official organ of visceral realism. We are Yaremis Félix, Ricardo Hinoa, Erin Koster, Tania Molina, David Skeist, Marcos Toledo and Javierantonio
