Argos Teatro to Premiere Talco
Talco, an original piece by Cuban playwright Abel González, directed by Carlos Celdrán, was premiered on Friday by the Argos Teatro theater group in Havana.
The piece is part of Abel’s winter trilogy, which also includes Chamaco and Nevada, and shows an underworld in which contemporary reality is present, AIN news agency reported.
In a Havana movie theater, four characters: Javi (Alexander Díaz) Máshenka (Waldo Franco), Zuleydi (Yuliet Cruz) and Álvaro (José Luis Hidalgo), come together to recreate a close universe of relations marked by marginalization and economic interests.
Talco compresses and implodes the outlying areas of the city that González Melo has been presenting us with obsessive persistence over the last few years, by way of a very personal, compassionate, inquisitive, playful and insistent look, asserts Celdrán.
The author forces us to observe and recognize ourselves in the play, he added, in spite of the rejection prompted by what he describes.
The production will run every weekend of September in the regular hours of Argos Teatro.
