The Cimientos 2015 program at the IATI Theater in New York City brings together a selection of what contemporary playwriting has to offer in the most exhilarating of forms. Genres are bent out of shape and reborn in ways that methodically explode on the paper that will then be exposed on stage. Now in its 15th year, this play development program continues to fuel the genesis of theater: the playwright. With an array of national and cross-continental writers, Cimientos will be the host to the bravest of theatrical statements; all plays are not created equal and our avant-garde is a solemn cry into what theater can and should do today.
