LAS AZURDUY at Brava’s Cabaret in San Francisco, CA
Las Azurduy is an original play by Argentinian playwright Florencia Aroldi, commissioned by La Lengua Theater en Español, and edited by Eugenia Arbol.
The story is a journey through the mind of a warrior woman, minutes before her death and during her last battle against oblivion.
In this piece, you get to know and understand the powerful figure of Juana Azurduy (1780-1862), a leader of South American independence, whose courage, conviction and spirit required not just one but three characters from this production to recount his exploits; that’s why the room is called ¨Las Azurduy¨.
With an all-Latin cast, this story celebrates the strength and power of female collective action. The cast proudly honors the figure of Juana Azurduy and through history wishes to inspire young people, especially young girls, and encourage them to recognize their own strength and power towards a more inclusive future.
The world premiere of the show will be presented at Cabaret de Brava in San Francisco, California. Show dates to escape from From August 19 to 28 at 7 p.m. (PDT).
This will be the first piece commissioned by LA LENGUA in Spanish, Aymara and Quechua languages with English and Spanish surtitles to reach a wider audience. Elena Ester (Quechua voice) and Chana Mamani (Aymara Voice) have been recruited to help realize this unique project.
