This weekend, film projection meets live action theater during Teatro Cinema’s U.S. premiere of Sin Sangre (Without Blood). As part of MDC Live Arts series, Sin Sangre is presented in Spanish with English supertitles at 8 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, Mar. 15 – 16 at The Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. Tickets cost $25 for the general public and $10 for MDC students with valid identification. To purchase tickets, call 305-237-3010, or visit www.mdclivearts.org.
Sin Sangre is a stunning adaptation from a novella by Italian author/playwright Alessandro Baricco. This fast-paced production, blending theater arts and cinema in an impactful and transformative way, shares the story of a woman seeking revenge after witnessing three vigilantes murder her father and brother. With all the fury and rage running through her, she hunts down the killers. When she comes face to face with the third killer, things become quite interesting.
“Teatro Cinema is creating some of the most innovative theater in Latin America today. We are thrilled to introduce their groundbreaking work to Miami audiences in this exciting U.S. premiere,” said MDC Live Arts Executive Director, Kathryn Garcia.
Based in Santiago, Chile, Teatro Cinema has performed in North and South America, Europe and Asia. The Miami Sin Sangre production cast and crew includes Dauno Totoro, Juan Carlos Zagal, Montserrat Fedra Quezada, Jose Manuel Aguirre, Laura Maria Pizarro, Bernardita Antonieta Montero, Luis Alfredo Alcaide, Lucio Alejandro Gonzales, Ariel Matias Del Pozo and Etienne Andre Bobenrieth.
In addition to presenting Teatro Cinema, MDC Live Arts is offering an educational residency with the troupe to MDC theater students and local professional artists. Created in three distinct modules, the residency will include storyboarding, scripting, narration, masks and interactive performance with multimedia. Teatro Cinema’s rehearsal and staging process, and its complex theatrical format, will be shared with participants.
“MDC Live Arts prides itself on presenting world-class artists from around the globe, with a special eye towards Latin America and the Caribbean,” Garcia added. “The multi-cultural and multi-lingual nature of our programming reflects the reality of our community and mirrors its richness.”
