Play by Guillermo Calderón
translated by William Gregory

Directed by Prof. Debbie Saivetz
Featuring visiting artist Leonor Lopehandía with Montclair State University Theatre students Alexandra Doggette and Antoinette Fasino

In Guillermo Calderón’s Villa (2011), three young women debate the future of the site of a former villa turned into torture barracks by the military dictatorship.Originally performed inside the infamous Villa Grimaldi, this play by one of Chilean theatre’s fiercest new literary voices grapples with the legacy of atrocity using “stark lyricism and dreamlike imagery” (LA Times).
The reading will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Lopehandía, the student actors and guest dramaturg Sarah Rose Leonard, literary associate at Signature Theatre, NYC.
Co-sponsored by the Global Education Center at Montclair State.

How do soldiers returning from the battlefield recover from their wounds? How do doctors and nurses heal the injuries these soldiers suffer, seen and unseen? Trailblazing choreographer Liz Lerman returns to Peak Performances with Healing Wars, a profoundly relevant and deeply moving new work. Through spoken word, video, and dance, Healing Wars reaches across the centuries to connect the modern wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the American Civil War. The ensemble of performers is joined onstage by a young Navy veteran whose presence personalizes the tribute that this brilliant, deftly nuanced production pays to all soldiers and healers, past and present.
*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates
