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

Where: HERE

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.

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.
