All submissions should be new and unproduced works with a minimum running time of 75 minutes. They can be written in Spanish and/or English.

REPERTORIO ESPAÑOL ANNOUNCES THE NEW YORK CITY PREMIERE OF JUAN MAYORGA’S LA PAZ PERPETUA

paz art

La paz perpetua begins previews on Friday, February 21st and premieres on Tuesday, February 25th, 2020 at Repertorio Español’s historic Gramercy Arts Theater located at 138 East 27th Street in Manhattan, New York.

The acclaimed play by Juan Mayorga is directed by Leyma López. The cast includes Germán Jaramillo, Zulema Clares as well as Luis Carlos de la Lombana, Sandor Juan and Pedro de León.

JANUARY, 2020 – NEW YORK, NY – Repertorio Español is proud to announce the New York City premiere of La paz perpetua by renowned Spanish playwright and dramatist Juan Mayorga and directed by Leyma López. The show was received as a critical success in Spain and is the recipient of the 2009 Valle Inclán Award. Inspired by the 1795 German philosopher Immanuel Kant, La paz perpetua reimagines the text of the same name in a modern context. It investigates the concepts of power, personal ideologies, and political agendas through the eyes of dogs. La paz perpetua holds a mirror to modern society, asking what is humanity willing to sacrifice for peace?

ABOUT THE PLAY 

The elite canine squad K7 is on the hunt for new member. Three dogs have made it to the final rounds of testing but only one can move ahead. Will it be the Rottweiler with a powerful nose? The tough crossbreed who follows orders without question? Or the intelligent and philosophical German Shepherd with a personal vendetta? A grizzled veteran Labrador issues the examinations that will ultimately decide which dog can wear the prestigious “white collar” of K7. How far will they go to reach their goal? And at what cost?

FERNANDO DE ROJAS – PLAYWRIGHT
Fernando de Rojas (d. 1541), the author of “La Celestina”, was born in the fifteenth century in Puebla de Montalban near Toledo, Spain. “La Celestina” is the only book that Rojas ever wrote, and few details of his life have ever come to light. What is known is that he was a lawyer by trade, educated at the prestigious University of Salamanca and that he belonged to a noble family of Conversos, or Jews who adopted Christianity. The genesis of “La Celestina” also carries with it an air of mystery. According to Rojas, he came across the first act, entitled The Comedy of Calisto and Melibea, while in Salamanca. This first act had supposedly been penned by an anonymous author. Rojas found himself so enchanted with the work that he decided to expand and complete it during a two-week vacation from practicing law. From the nucleus first act was born a novel in dialogue from about two young lovers from different backgrounds who take a popular ideal of love in Rojas’s era to an extreme that bears tragic consequences for themselves and those around them.

LEYMA LÓPEZ – DIRECTOR

“Ms. Pericet, a brash flamenco dancer who can take on many personas in a single performance..” –The New York Times

“Expect to be surprised; besides being a fiery and technically accomplished performer, Pericet is a mercurial presence and a fearless experimenter.” –The New Yorker

 

After 3 years of critically acclaimed runs that The New York Times described as a “powerhouse performance,” Flamenco Star Olga Pericet will return to Repertorio Español in October 2018 with her new show “Focal Point”.

Pericet, who premiered “Flamenco Untitled” in 2015 at Repertorio, will return to the 27th Street theatre for three-weeks run from October 3rd to 21st. One of the most accomplished Flamenco dancers on the globe, she has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, New York Magazine, and many more as well as MAX Award winner of the Performing Arts for Best Dancer in 2015 among many others.

Pericet will again be joined by renowned guitarist Antonia Jimenez, unique in that she is one of the few female flamenco guitarists in the industry as well as an extraordinarily accomplished Spanish guitarist in her own right. The show will also include interludes of songs and solos featuring renowned singers Inma “La Carbonera” and Miguel Lavi.

Executive Producer Robert Weber Federico stated: “We are beyond proud to herald the return of Pericet to Repertorio Español. Flamenco dance is one of the cornerstones of the 50-year trajectory of our theatre.”
