Teatro

 

Modeled after Cornell's Teatrotaller, we began developing a Hispanic theater presence on the Ithaca College campus in 2006. After our debut of Aída Bortnik's Papá querido  as part of Teatrotaller's Las Américas festival, Ithaca College students began proposing plays that they wanted to direct in Spanish. Successful shows of Miguel Mihura's Tres sombreros de copa and Griselda Gambaro's Información para extranjeros made it evident that Teatro had found a home on the IC campus.

With the creation of two new courses,"Teatro: From the Page to the Stage" (Spanish 260) and  "Experiencing Teatro" (Spanish 270), we have been performing at least one show per semester over the past several years. Our repertoire has expanded to include Latino plays as well as Spanish language plays from Latin America, Spain, and the Caribbean. On December 10th, 2013, Teatro performed a bilingual adaptation of "A propósito de la duda / For the Sake of Doubt" at the United Nations in honor of International Human Rights Day http://enaun.mrecic.gov.ar/en/node/13645.
