From Brooklyn’s apartment to La MaMa E.T.C

In December 2011, an early version of “39 Defaults” played in an apartment in Brooklyn for three weeks. Only 12 people were allowed in the audience. One of them was the producer of Teatro Stage Fest where we officially premiered, in June 2012. The venue where we played, Casa Mezcal NY, asked us to come back in November and December 2012, where, the programming director of the most renown downtown theater, La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, chose us.
On January 31st 2014 La MaMa presents “39 Defaults”. This play is special, this play keeps on growing, don’t miss this experience, if you are in NYC, come and test your suspicions.

The play shows this interaction in real time. It takes place in an authentic living room and in this intimate setting; there will be no border between the piece and the audience, who participate in the performance as the invited “voyeurs” of the evening.

This is a play about idealism and human interactions, about the contrast between ideas and daily necessities.

Ricard Neun is a Spanish social activist. He has defrauded 39 banks in Spain. He claims this is not a crime, but a general call for financial disobedience. He is travelling around America giving lectures about this “action”. In New York he gives a talk and meets Liz, who invites him to stay at her place.

Mar Gómez Glez al abordaje del Teatro Valle-Inclán de Madrid

Mar Gómez Glez, escritora de 39 Defaults, ganó el Premio de Teatro Calderón de la Barca para autores noveles 2011 por su obra Cifras,y el pasado 18 de octubre, el Centro Dramático Nacional acogió en el Teatro Valle-Inclán de Madrid la presentación de este libro y su lectura dramatizada. El texto fue presentado por Cristina Santolaria, subdirectora general de Teatro del INAEM y vicepresidenta del jurado del Premio Calderón; Julio Huélamo, director del Centro de Documentación Teatral, y la propia autora.

Cifras pone en ficción la vida de los once marineros del barco pesquero ‘Francisco y Catalina’, que en el año 2006 recogieron a 51 inmigrantes y estuvieron una semana sin poder entrar a puerto mientras se resolvía el conflicto diplomático entre Malta y España. De atravesar fronteras va esta historia, la de la obra y la de Mar.

El CDN avala institucionalmente la producción de esta “lectura”, en la línea de compromiso que el nuevo director, Ernesto Caballero, mantiene por los valores emergentes de nuestra dramaturgia contemporánea. Ainhoa Amestoy,directora de la propuesta escénica, reconoce haberse sentido “totalmente identificada” con la forma de escribir de Mar, y señala su “absoluto respeto al texto”, motivo por el que se han incluido las acotaciones en la función. “Nos interesó especialmente la soledad del individuo y su encuentro con el otro (lo social), con todo lo que implica: la generosidad o el egoísmo, la humanidad, la profesionalidad, la entrega, la mentira, la necesidad, las obsesiones, etc. Miramos desde el plano del realismo, pero con cierto distanciamiento próximo al teatro-documento”, apunta.

En la puesta en escena, una pantalla recalca los días y presenta el mundo de las nuevas tecnologías, simbolizando la voz de la opinión pública (un rostro sin nombre). La propuesta de dirección añade un personaje inventado que representa a los náufragos, sus ascendientes, y descendientes. Dicho personaje ofrece distintos puntos de vista mediante una impactante presencia física (cantos, percusión con objetos no convencionales de la utilería y danzas son sus armas). El espacio divide el barco del lugar de los políticos y, en el medio, queda la mujer-intermediaria. Estéticamente, el montaje busca los contrastes entre los negros, blancos, metales y grises.

Un espléndido equipo actoral integrado por Felipe Andrés, Ernesto Arias, Carmen Conesa, Mélida Molina, Esosa Omo, Pablo Rivero Madriñán, Ángel Solo y Francisco Vidal pone voz a estas Cifras. Ainhoa Amestoy destaca el trabajo del elenco, que consigue crear “un espectáculo emocionante, muy humano y muy actual, que navega por todo tipo de emociones. Un recital desnudo, muy verdadero, limpio y directo”.

Mar Gómez es dramaturga en la compañía de su creación,  Fifth Wall, donde estreno 39 Defaults en el pasado festival Teatro Stage Fest. Fue dramaturga residente en la Residencia de Estudiantes (Madrid, 2005-06), ha participado en distintos festivales como Teatro Vivo (NYC, 2008) y en la exposición Eléctrica 11 (NYC, 2011). Su obra ha sido parcialmente traducida al inglés. Además ha firmado la novela Cambio de sentido (2010), la obra Fuga mundi (2008), el libro infantil Acebedario (2006) y varios cuentos publicados en distintos medios. En 2008 recibió el Primer Premio de Relato del Certamen Arte Joven Latina y en 2007 el Premio Beckett de Teatro.

39 Defaults on NY1

 

The play “39 Defaults” by Spanish playwright Mar Gomez Glez, which highlights the Latino international festival, is the true story of a Spanish political activist on the run from the law who gets invited to stay at an American woman’s New York apartment.

“It really creates a unique opportunity, I feel for an audience to experience a different kind of just experience, a different kind of way of seeing theater,” said director Julian Mesri.

“We founded TeatroStageFest to give voice to the diverse and rich Latino community of New York,” said Susana Tubert, the festival’s executive director.

NY1 is a sponsor of the festival. For more information, visit teatrostagefest.org.
