VOY POR CIGARROS
(Going out for Cigarettes)
An international event from Cuba,
performed in Spanish

written and directed by Gerardo Fulleda Leon

EVENT POSTPONED

Call Pan Asian Rep for more information:
212-868-4030 

In 2003, Pan Asian and its production of RASHOMON were the first professional company from the US to be invited to the Havana Theatre Festival; now Pan Asian’s mission to foster international exchange and produce intercultural works continues with this limited engagement directly from Cuba, which incorporates Cuban music and dance!

In VOY POR CIGARROS, Serafin Armada learns from Reader’s Digest that each year in America, men disappear from their homes- not because they are killed or kidnapped- but because they choose to leave their perfect families. Even if they are non-smokers, one day they might stand and say, ‘I’m going out for cigarettes’ and never return. Using the unraveling of Armada’s marriage to explore issues of power, identity and authenticity, this new play by an exciting contemporary Cuban playwright offers audiences unique access to a voice seldom heard in America.

Cast includes Cuban artists Loreta Estévez Canto and Luis Ángel Lyn Santiesteban.

Gerardo Fulleda Leon (playwright/director) Born in Santiago, Cuba, León is a playwright, scholar and director. Since 1988 he has served as the General Director of the renowned Cuban theatre company, Rita Montaner. Following in the tradition of Nicolas Guillen and Fernando Ortiz, Fulleda is dedicated to an exploration of afro-Cuban culture and is founder of the annual “Ritual and Representation" event that explores the ‘transculturation’ of the African presence in Cuba through lectures, workshops, performance and visual art. He has been awarded the Distinction for National Culture, the Raul Gomez-Garcia award for over 25 years of outstanding work in the field of theater, among many others, and his works have been performed in Colombia, the United States, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Sweden, Venezuela, Switzerland and Spain.
