Can Love Survive An Apocalypse?
When Aníbal de la Luna meets pregnant Celestina del Sol at a rainy bus stop, he offers her shelter for the night. As the two get to know each other, they realize that time and love don't always behave quite how they should.
This modern masterpiece explores how the elemental forces shape who we become, and it will be directed by one of the most influential Latinx theatre-makers in America, Culture Clash co-founder Herbert Sigüenza.
CLOUD TECTONICS is a part of NVA's new bilingual and bicultural Teatro Pueblo Nuevo initiative, and will include many surround events celebrating our Latinx community.

An "enchanting new play... Rivera has found a voice to probe the mystery of the kind of love that stops your heart as surely as it does your sense of time and space." - Laurie Winer, Los Angeles Times "The operative phrase for José Rivera's work is 'magic realism,' which doesn't mean much until you've been put under the spell of his brief and lovely play, CLOUD TECTONICS. It's a love story, an old boy-meets-girl story, but... it's also a story of theatrical enchantment, in which the ordinary is suddenly transformed into the miraculous." - Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune
