DON’T CRY FOR ME by Paulino Brener
A tall Argentine leaves his mother land to come to the U.S. and discovers that changing the language you speak might change who you are. Don’t Cry For Me uses satire, movement, and storytelling to explore connections between language and identity. Performed by Paulino Brener. Directed by Dario Tangelson.
Don’t Cry For Me was created as part of the Naked Stages program. A multi-layered program designed to empower artists to be their most bold and creative and to challenge artists and audiences alike to push past their previous boundaries. Nakes Stages is a 7 to 9 month development program that provides four distinctive artists the time and money to bring their visions to life on stage. This program is funded by the Jerone Foundation and it takes place at Pillsbury House Theater.
