DE FUENTE OVEJUNA A CIUDAD JUÁREZ
Premiere at the Thalia Theater, New York, United States, 2010
Produced by The Cross Border Project and Thalia Theater
HOLA Award (Hispanic Organization for Latin Actors) for the most outstanding production in New York in 2011
ACE Award (The Association of Latin Entertainment Critics) for the best classical theater show of 2011
Special Mention from the Almagro Off jury in 2011
First professional show by Lucía Miranda. It was considered by Univisión as “one of the best productions that Latin theater in New York has seen in many years”. It premiered in New York, touring Spain’s classical theater festivals.
The play is a version of Lope de Vega’s Fuente Ovejuna, set in the context of the femicides of Ciudad Juárez. The women farm workers become sweatshop workers, the Knight Commander is a drug kingpin and the figure of the monarchs is replaced by the voice of the President of Mexico, acting as a deus ex machina.
It had various musical scenes executed by the women’s Mariachi group Flor de Toloache and an artistic team that included 10 different nationalities.
