Translation and U.S. premiere of JUAN PALMIERI by Antonio Larreta

To support the translation and U.S. premiere of JUAN PALMIERI by influential Uruguayan playwright Antonio Larreta, winner of the Casa de las Américas Award. This project will employ Latinx actors and artists to bring the history of Uruguay’s civil-military dictatorship to the Pacific Northwest’s regional theatre scene. With a black-box production at Seattle’s A Contemporary Theatre (ACT), JUAN PALMIERI will leverage the visibility of a major regional venue to highlight the cultural contributions of the Latinx community, and will connect with Latinx audiences outside the city by bringing a performance free of cost to people without regular access to the arts.
