Directions to the theatre:

Hagiografías (Hagiographies) is a collage of theatrical vignettes which interculturally explores notions of sainthood. In the Puerto Rico of the 1940´s, two pilgrims (peregrinos) wait for a train in a ghost station. In New York, a vampire in a barbershop turns out to be a graffitero that kills and resurrects images of saints on the streets by painting over them. Chalk drawings and live computerized transcription materialize the story of Bhasmasura, the demon in India who aspired to reach a god. In a final episode, stories of saints´ lives, the meaning of names and the sense of an always disappearing home come together in the desert.

Hagiografías moves between English and Spanish (as well as other real languages and invented ones). Amid this aural panorama, the play is intended to be experienced and understood in different ways, depending on your relationship with these tongues.

With the collaboration of the actors-technicians: Alejandra Maldonado, Christopher Cancel Pomales and Suácer Marmolejos. Text and stage direction by Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya.

Hagiografías / Hagiographies is a workshop production of Casa Cruz de la Luna Theatre Company as part of Pregones Theater ASAP program.
