Tell us what you thought about Te hare invencible con mi derrota Oct 6, 2011

An essential part of the mission of On the Boards is introducing international innovators to audiences, so we’re particularly proud to bring this artist here. The show has already prompted a lot of conversation.

But we want to know what you think about Te haré invencible con mi derrota. How did you react to the intensity of the performance? Did you take anything away from the show (images, sound, meaning, etc)? What did you think of the connection to the cellist Jacqueline du Pré?

Leave your thoughts in the comments!

A note from OtB about Angelica Liddell Oct 6, 2011

Angélica Liddell is a warrior artist. She sees the stage as a battlefield and employs any means necessary to make something beautiful out of difficult subjects, things most people would rather leave unsaid or unexamined. She describes personal pain and summons the spirit of a famous dead cellist for answers. A ritual unfolds – what she considers to be a séance of sorts – as she dialogues with Jacqueline du Pré.

The Big Night May 13, 2011

by Gina Russell

It starts off simple, an ensemble member quietly entering the stage soon after the house opens, but the nerves, as each subsequent member enters, are palpable.  The show brings together five performers, each with their own strengths and flaws, and a director, who blatantly critiques them all, as they try to create, rehearse and eventually perform a new choral piece.
