Visionary artist-activist @lola_arias_works speaks with @silviarottenberg for @hyperallergic about touring MINEFIELD around the world, bringing the show to America earlier this year, and moving to Berlin to develop her newest project! "Conflict lies at the heart of theater. Action in fictional theater is generated by conflict. In my documentary projects I work with communities that are in tension with one another. And together we reconstruct history, which in itself is conflictive because everyone has different perspectives on what has happened — whether that is Communism, war, or dictatorship. My works are polyphonic, uniting people with different points of views. It is history seen through the eyes of these persons, without a pretense to being universal, which, through its subjectivity, becomes universal."
Congratulations to @wayne.shorter on his 11th Grammy Win!! "Best Jazz Instrumental Album," for the album "Emanon" !

Just announced for the @publictheaterny 2019 Under The Radar Festival!

MINEFIELD by Lola Arias 
January 11th - January 13th at NYU Skirball

In her trademark political and playful style, Lola Arias brings together British and Argentinian veterans of the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas war to share their first-hand experience of the conflict and life since. Digging deep into the personal impact of war, MINEFIELD is a collaboratively created new work that merges theatre and film to explore the minefield of memory, where truth and fiction collide.
