Otra tempestad (1997, 1998) HIDVL

Adaptation written by Teatro Buendía's Raquel Carrió and Flora Lauten, based on texts by Shakespeare, Carpentier, Paz, Martí, and Caribbean folktales, rituals and songs from Yoruban and Araran cultures. An exploration of the conflicting and syncretic coordinates of "cubanidad," "Otra Tempestad" tells the story of the labyrinthical encounters (dreamt or imagined) between well-known Shakespearean characters and key figures of Afro-Caribbean mythology. Fifteen "cuadros," constantly cycling from death to utopia to death, examine archetypal behavior, investigating the space where worlds collide, the confluence of old and new world orders.
