“Axiom 1: People are different from each other. It is astonishing how few conceptual tools we have for dealing with this self-evident fact.” - Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick

2010 New York Fornés Festival: Maria Irene Fornés

March 25th to April 5th, 2010

Presented by INTAR (International Arts Relations, Inc)  in association with NYU’s Department of English

INTAR (Eduardo Machado, Artistic Director/John McCormack, Executive Director) will join New York University’s Department of English and its Program in Dramatic Literature to celebrate the 80th birthday of playwright, director and teacher Maria Irene Fornés. To honor this seminal figure in American theater, NYU faculty members Gwendolyn Alker (Department of Drama) and Eduardo Machado (Department of Dramatic Writing) will present a festival of Fornés plays at a number of Off-Broadway theaters, including INTAR, New World Stages, Cherry Lane, and Theater for the New City.

The New York Fornés Festival will present her landmark play Fefu and Her Friends as well as more rarely revived works (Dr. Kheal, Tango Palace, The Successful Life of 3, The Summer in Gossensass, and What of the Night?) as staged readings, as well as a screening of the film, “The Rest I Make Up”: Documenting Irene.

The 2010 New York Fornés Festival provides a rare opportunity to encounter the full range of Fornés’ plays in a short span of time and to contextualize them through talkbacks with Fornés artists and scholars. Health permitting, Fornés herself will attend some events. INTAR, one of the United States’ longest running Latino theatres producing in English, works to:

  • Nurture the professional development of Latino theater artists.
  • Produce bold, innovative, artistically significant plays that reflect diverse perspectives.
  • Make accessible the diversity inherent in America’s cultural heritage.

Through an integrated program of workshops, productions of works in progress, and mainstage productions, INTAR continues to raise standards of the theater arts. INTAR brings to the public vital and energetic voices of both promising and accomplished Latino theater professionals, replacing stereotypes while giving expression to the diversity and depth of today’s Latino-American community.

For reservations for all events except Promenade, please email Visit INTAR Theatre for more information.
