Co-commissioned with The Chocolate Factory Theater and PICA.

PURO TEATRO: A Spell For Utopia furthers luciana achugar’s mission of making work as a practice of constructing a new theater – a utopian theater – as a practice of growing a collective utopian uncivilized body with the audience. It asks our bodies directly, intimately and collectively: what do we need now, and what can carry us through and give us hope? PURO TEATRO: A Spell For Utopia considers the possibility of the theater inherent in the intimacy of our own experience within the spaces of our bodies, our homes and our communities. A theater without theater. An embodying spell. An intimate incantation for our dystopian reality.

Conceived and Directed by luciana achugar. Created and Performed by luciana achugarMolly LieberAntonio Ramos and Sarah White-Ayón.
