The Patronato Benéfico Oriental (PBO) along with Casa de Teatro has organized a new and very interesting event for the community! Theater Nights at Genesis Nightclub will take place on September 22nd and 23rd September 23rd and 30th. This event is something different and captivating which we haven’t had in a while; plus, it will be supporting two very good causes. 

Theater is one of the most important and ancient cultural expressions in the world. It was of great importance in the history of ancient Greece, home to some of the most outstanding thinkers, leaving works that have transcended to this day as in the case of Oedipus the king, Medea, The Iliada, among others. It is an art that is in constant evolution, changing as the decades go by. The love for theater transcends all age groups and can bring out different feelings in everyone. When you see a good play, you often walk out of the theater a different person than when you walked in. You think “I’ve been challenged,” and you see things in a different perspective.

The Patronato Benéfico Oriental has joined forces with Casa de Teatro (House of Theater) in Santo Domingo to bring us two days of theater. On Friday, September 22nd they will present the monologue “A veces Grito,” written by Freddy Ginebra 49 years ago and performed by Colombian actor Alejandro Vásquez. The play has an international production and has been presented with great success in several countries in different festivals around the world.  This monologue was assembled in the Dominican Republic in February 2011, and after being performed around the world it returned to the country back in February of this year. It tells the story of a troubled man named Juan who comes to the psychiatrist’s office. His character is caught within the limits of madness, heavy with a tragic past, and a complicated family environment, presenting himself in his own delirium. The second night will feature Freddy Ginebra, himself, with his presentation, “Ella Canta y El Cuenta” along with Diomary La Mala, who won Soloist of the year 2016 in the Soberanos.

Freddy Ginebra is a cultural agent, writer, and Dominican journalist. In 1974, along with a group of young men and women he founded Casa de Teatro, a cultural Center in the city of Santo Domingo, and has been its Director ever since. They were looking for a place where they could perform independent and innovative theater. It was a difficult and repressive era. Everything that looked avant guard, or different, was branded as red or a problem. After a long time of rejection and people not believing in them, they found a house in the Colonial Zone where they were able to present their ideas and stories, conquering the hearts of many, and more people started supporting their project. Over 30 years have passed and it’s still a popular spot in Santo Domingo.

This event is in support of both the Casa de Teatro and the artistic projects of the Hogar del Niño. If you love theater it is definitely an event worth going to; plus, you will be supporting two organizations that help build and keep alive this ancient art.
