STELLA, COME HOME
An adaptation of
A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
BY TENNESSEE WILLIAMS
Produced by Et Alia Theater
Directed by SarAika Movement Collective
Associated Director: Marina Zurita
Performed by Ana Moioli, Giorgia Valenti, Israel Harris, Luísa Galatti and Maria Müller
When: August 6th and 7th
Stella, Come Home is a dance-theater piece that translates the iconic American play A Streetcar Named Desire into movement and dance through the bodies of our company's international women. We feel urged to explore what it means to perform this pinnacle of white US theater as women immigrants in New York City, one of the most heterogeneous cities in the world. Just as a reality-stricken Blanche longs for a return to her imagined Belle Reve, we are outsiders going through the painful struggle of letting go of our past, while the promised land of NYC forces us to face our truth: culturally diverse women still have to fight to be heard.
WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
BY NASSIM SOLEIMANPOUR
Produced by Luísa Galatti & Ana Moioli
Performed by Maria Müller
Public Relations Associate: Gillian Britt
When: March 13th
Where: Theater for the New City
Forbidden to leave his home country, Nassim Soleimanpour wrote a one-performer play as a letter that would travel the world in his place. With no rehearsals, no director, and a sealed script, White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a show in which the actor reads the script for the first time onstage.
This performance will be part of Let There Be Theatre - A Call to Action on March 13th. Theaters from all over the globe will be staging a production of White Rabbit Red Rabbit on March 13th, to mark the date that most theaters had to shut down due to the pandemic. At 8pm in every time zone there will be a multitude of shows starting at the same time for 24 hours, thus creating a massive theatrical community. Et Alia Theater is proud to represent New York in this event.
