The Maids

By Jos? Rivera, adapted from The Maids by Jean Genet

Directed by Daniel Irizarry

Featuring Laura Butler Rivera, Daniel Irizarry, Charlie Munn, Casey Robinson, Folami Williams and Jos? Rivera himself will make special appearances in the first two weekends

Performances began September 29 and ran until October 30th?

Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5pm

In Rivera?s interpretation, two maids, sisters Monique and Yvette, dream of liberating Vieques from La Do?a, mistress of the largest sugar plantation on the island. ?Rituals are enacted, roles are reversed, identities become fluid, bombs fall, poison is consumed, genders collide, and a psycho-sexual drama is unleashed as the trio struggles with the meaning of power, sisterhood, and freedom,? state production notes from INTAR.?

Developed at The Orchard Project 2015
Started in 2007, the Orchard Project invites the most cutting-edge theater artists to retreat to New York’s Catskill Mountains and collaboratively develop new plays.?

The production will have scenic design by Jorge Dieppa, lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno, costume design by Meghan Healey, and sound design by Marcelo A?ez.

****FOUR STARS

Time Out NY

“Raul Castillo is a pleasure” New York Times

Adoration of the Old Woman “is getting a major production by INTAR, that for the past 40 years has championed Latino artists and voices and diversity and become a home and launching point for many Latino artists.” Gay City News

 

 

TEACH, TEACHER, TEACHEST January 2014

 

One-Eighth?s production of Teach, Teacher, Teachest by David Koteles tells the story of a pupil who arrives at the apartment of a new tutor for a lesson. What happens to her is as unexpected and random as life itself. Loosely based on Eugene Ionesco?s modern classic The Lesson, Teach, Teacher, Teachest is a cat and mouse struggle that questions what is happening and what is not. Daniel Irizarry directs this look at controlling influences, expectations, and the abuse of authority in the contemporary world. As Saul Alinsky famously said in Rules for Radicals, ?He who controls the language, controls the masses.?

TEATRO LUNA- LUNA UNLACED?August 2013

Teatro Luna, America?s ONLY Pan-Latina Theatre Company, returns to INTAR as they complete their National Tour and continue on to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with their new original performance?Luna Unlaced

Teatro Luna has broken free of Chicago for the summer to bring their groundbreaking work to New York City! Teatro Luna has been called ?Theatre that matters? by the New York Times and is America?s only Pan-Latina theatre company producing a full season of work. The Chicago Tribune says that Luna ?…wears its Latina cultural specificity with an ease that is both rich and fully American? and that they are ?hugely entertaining? by New City. This summer,
Teatro Luna has toured sixteen cities throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington and New York in preparation for their first appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival next month!

With LUNA UNLACED, A New Performance, the ladies of Luna give you a chance to decide the show live from moment to moment! We?ve unpacked, unfettered and unlaced our entire canon of work to bring audiences the very best of Luna with our trademark humor that we use when telling our real stories. Using monologues, songs, improv, scenes and poetry, the Ladies of Luna delve into a whole slew of issues ranging from our sexuality, latinidad, adventures in immigrant story archives, unfortunate racist encounters we?ve lived through, and the sometimes self-induced drama that makes up our lives as Latinas in?the USA. ?Slightly campy, sometimes serious, always deployed with meticulous timing, professionalism and talent, Luna Unlaced is a show with staying power? says TheatreJones. The idea is simple: we?ve picked twenty of our favorite pieces from recent productions, and through a series of random draws, Twitter battles and latina trivia, the audience picks the twelve pieces they want to see. The show is different every night, and every night, the actors are as surprised by the outcome as the audience. Anything can happen with the Ladies of Luna!

This play are presented in English with a sprinkle of Spanish.

UNIT52, an acting company in training, was established and developed by Lou Moreno, Daniel J?quez, Gilbert Cruz, David Anzuelo, Maria Helan, Maggie Bofill, Gerardo Rodr?guez and Mariana Carre?o King.

Our purpose in starting UNIT52 was to share with emerging actors the talents of INTAR’s associate artists and other master teachers such as Stephen Adly Guirgis and Daniel Irizarri. We offered them a free training program that met once a week for 24 weeks. The program culminates with this NewWorks Lab presentation of a new play commissioned specifically for this group.
