Del Decamerón at El Sótano Theater
Starting from April 7th and until 30th, the theater group Gaviota (Seagull) will present the play Del Decamerón (From The Decameron) at El Sótano Theater in the municipality of Vedado in the capital city. It is a comedy taking as starting point the erotic short stories by Giovanni Boccaccio and has the general direction of Lilian Dujarric, who is also in charge of the production.
Beyond the dialogues in it, the piece makes significant use of the actor’s gestural work. Several references are also made to themes of Cuban music that emerge as hyperlinks in the speeches by the characters, Lilian Dujarric stated.
Del Decamerón was shown by this company for the first time last June at the Cultural Complex Bertolt Brecht with the greatest of receptions on the part of the audience.
The performances will be on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. and on Sundays at 5:00 p.m.
