Across the River (Al otro lado del rio)
A new solo performance by NWPL’s Jairo Cuesta, written by Josy Jones, directed by James Slowiak.
New World Performance Lab (NWPL) presents “Across the River (Al otro lado del rio),” a new solo performance featuring Jairo Cuesta, written by Josy Jones, and directed by James Slowiak. This performance is the first in a series of events NWPL will present this spring in Akron before relocating to Europe. In this intimate and compelling theatre encounter, NWPL co-artistic director, Jairo Cuesta, takes the spectator on the journey of an immigrant. Using both autobiographical details and stories from the field and fiction, Cuesta weaves a mythic tale of the perils, heartaches, wanderings, and wonders of leaving one’s home to settle in another country. The storytelling is made even more vivid by NWPL company member Josy Jones’ poetic playwriting.
