CARLSBAD, CA. January 4, 2018 – New Village Arts Theatre is excited to announce CLOUD TECTONICS by Obie Award-winning playwright José Rivera, directed by acclaimed writer and artist Herbert Sigüenza.
CLOUD TECTONICS is an apocalyptic love story. When Aníbal de la Luna meets pregnant Celestina del Sol at a rainy bus stop in Los Angeles, he offers her shelter for the night. As the two get to know each other, they realize that time and love don’t always behave quite how they should. This modern masterpiece is a love story that transcends time and space, examining how elemental forces shape who we become. Herbert Sigüenza directs in his New Village Arts debut. Sigüenza is the Playwright in Residence for San Diego Repertory Theatre, and a founding member of the performance group CULTURE CLASH, the most-produced Latino theatre troupe in the United States. An accomplished playwright, writer, and performer, Sigüenza was recently featured in the voice cast for Pixar’s Golden Globe-winning COCO. NVA will also showcase Sigüenza’s visual art as part of its Foundry Artist Studios during the run of CLOUD TECTONICS.
New Village Arts’ Associate Artistic Director, Nadia Guevara, stars as Celestina del Sol. Guevara has recently been featured in THE SECRET GARDEN and BUDDY – THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY at NVA. She is joined by two actors making their NVA debuts: Jose Vicente is playing Aníbal de la Luna, and Javier Guerrero plays Nelson de la Luna. The creative ensemble includes Kymberli Skye (Stage Manager), Carmen Amon (Costume Designer), Paul Canaletti (Lighting Designer), Christopher Scott Murillo (Scenic Designer), Mark Spiro (Composer and Sound Designer), and Michelle Stann (Properties Designer).
CLOUD TECTONICS is the first mainstage season production of NVA’s new Teatro Pueblo Nuevo initiative, a new community outreach program celebrating biculturalism and bilingualism in Carlsbad and North County San Diego. The production will feature a number of community events and activities centered around our Spanish-speaking communities, celebrating Latinx culture and heritage.
CLOUD TECTONICS is sponsored by the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office.
