Axaxaxas Mlö by playwright Xavi Morató, staged reading in New York

Alba and Bruna are happy together. Genuinely happy. But happiness never lasts, especially on a stage. And especially when–in that stage–there is a playwright reading the stage directions out loud, and when that playwright has to tell a story, and when that story has to be packed with conflict.

Gemma Gorga’s BOOK OF MINUTES forthcoming in English

Imagine a book of hours condensed into a book of minutes: that is the project of these compact, lyrical prose poems. They locate the metaphysical within the domestic, moving seamlessly from philosophical speculation to aphorism to condensed narrative to brief love letter to prayer. In the space of one or two paragraphs they openly think about language, about existence, about beginnings and endings both large and small; not afraid to talk about God or love, their leitmotif might well be light.

Les distàncies by Elena Trapé, film screening in NYC

Elena Trapé’s film about a surprise visit by a group of Spanish friends to celebrate the 35th birthday of their friend Comas, who is living in Berlin, is a reunion film in a decidedly minor key that is suffused with the texture of life as it is really lived. None of the friends are exactly where they want to be, and secrets, regrets, and resentments simmer just below the surface. As downbeat as it is, the film always feels refreshingly vital, due to Trapé’s attention to ...

A major challenge full of adversity and obstacles, the struggle is daily, the trenches are endless, and consolation for the wounds and scratches suffered is often scarce or unhealthy. Even so, inexplicably, we men and women keep trying. And that’s why I’m convinced that only with irony and a sense of humor is it possible to write about this tragedy, which ...
