Theatre News on “La edad de la ciruela” by Aristides Vargas;
We finished staging the play a few days ago, now we need run it through so as to polish it. The whole process for me has been at times hard as I’d had to delve into strong emotions that stir me up. But that is being an actor. Our body and soul is our instrument and our duty is to serve our characters although It’s exhausting and tough going through memories, feelings, etc..To be vulnerable to everything we carry in our personal, intimate, and physical being, it is part of the creative process.
Working with Rossana Iturralde as director and actress has been very interesting. We have good chemistry and then, there’s nothing like sharing a stage with talented actors who give themselves and so nurture you to give your best back hoping this brings true moments without forgetting that “playing” also needs to be fun!
The whole process has been based on lots of physical work. Rehearsals have showed me new experiences through new exercises, improvisations, many hours of searching for mannerisms, voice, attitude, impulses for all different women roles I play. We also have laughed very much!
All of last week we focused on promotion and dealt with press and many publications will be out on the streets. Next week we’ll be featured in interviews and articles in magazines like: Vistazo, Vanguardia, Hola and Familia.
We hope you truly enjoy the play, it’s a little gem as everyone can connect with it through it’s deep emotions and poetry.
