Former Studio Series (2013), Fresh Tracks (2011-2012) and DTW commissioned artist (2008) luciana achugar presents the New York City premiere of OTRO TEATRO, co-commissioned by the Walker Arts Center. Concerned with ritual practices and her own cultural background (having grown up in Latin America), OTRO TEATRO is achugar’s current search for another kind of theater, a ritual of becoming, an occasion for communion. Directly translating to both “another theater” and “other theater” in her native Spanish, OTRO TEATRO, featuring vocal coaching and original music composed by Michael Kiley and set design by longtime collaborator Michael Mahalchick, is a dark rite of passage from destruction to rebuilding, and a dance to give voice to the arcane spirit and desire of our uncivilized bodies.
