Tuberose, Ginger and Other Essences

 

From June 12 to 16, 2024 at Theatre 1308

 

"Tuberose, Ginger and Other Essences" explores the universal language of love, the intoxicating essence of identity, and the liberation found in embracing one's true self.”

 

We are proud to present the world premiere of this unique mother-daughter Venezuelan love story in Calgary. Funded by Calgary Arts Development, co-produced by Geraldine Fuenmayor and ExpresARTe Theatre Club with the support of the Venezuelan Calgarian Association of Canada, Handsome Alice Theatre and Alberta Playwrights’ Networks.

“A brave young woman navigates the comfort of family and her blossoming identity away from home for the first time. Raised by a traditional Catholic mother in Venezuela, she faces her own truths as she comes of age and finds herself drawn to women. Embarking on a journey of profound revelations and desires. Her world becomes a whirlwind of emotions, intertwined with the rhythms of Latin dance and the complexities of family while fighting to study her passion, Urban Planning.”

 

 

Written and Directed by Geraldine Fuenmayor

 

Featuring:

Ameli Pereira, Gina Pavone, Jaime Cesar, Sepidar Yeganeh Farid and Snizhana Bora.

 

Music by Max Appelt and Miguel Zarate

Vocals by Mera Reyes and Sepidar Yeganeh Farid

 Doors open at 6:00 pm. Come and check the mosaic art exhibition by Cecilia Barboza, the theatre show starts at 7:00 pm, and after the play there will be a music recital (Cuatro) by Miguel Angel Zarate.
