Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya is the artistic director and founder of Casa de la Cruz de la Luna, a center for theater experimentation based in the historical district of San Germán, Puerto Rico. His most recent work with the company is Hagiographies, an ongoing exploration of notions of sainthood in popular iconography and daily life. In the U.S his work has been presented by Intermedia Arts, Red Eye Collaboration, the Guthrie Theater, Pregones, The Public Theater Reading Series and the Lincoln Center Director’s Lab.
Scripture performance is a form of theatrical poetics that explores the staging of the act of writing. (English will be the main language of this performance.)
