Photo Flash: New Shots from In Absentia Productions' PENINSULA at FringeNYC
PENINSULA tells the story of Tiago, a young man who escaped the poverty-stricken slums of Rio de Janeiro, now working as a migrant in a seemingly peaceful summer town in Northern Michigan's wine country. A visceral exploration of shifting identity, power and desire, PENINSULA explodes with poetry, sensuality, and danger. Below, check out new shots of the cast in action onstage at this year's FringeNYC!
PENINSULA began development in 2008 as part of Wright's MFA thesis at Columbia University, where it was presented as a staged reading directed by Hal Brooks and starring Vincent Piazzo as Tiago. PENINSULA was further developed during the summer of 2012 through a workshop production directed by Nadia Foskolou at Manhattan Repertory Theatre.
Presented by In Absentia Productions, PENINSULA has production design by Drew Florida. The General Manger is Dean A. Carpenter / D.A.C. Productions, LLC; and Christina Franklin is the Production Stage Manager.
