Company of Angels & Rocio In Spite of It All proudly presents the World Premiere of
DIAS Y FLORES
“A meditation on love – straight, gay and filial”
BY OLIVER MAYER / DIRECTED BY LUIS ALFARO
TWO OF LA’S MOST INFLUENTIAL CONTEMPORARY VOICES IN THEATER!
Dias y Flores is a meditation on love - straight, gay and filial. Testing which love is strongest, the play seeks the musical magic of love. Its story is loosely based on A Thousand and One Nights and the music of Cuban Silvio Rodriguez and Beethoven. It also looks at the changing face of Latinos – Caribbean to Mexican. What does it mean to be Latino and in love? What happens when your sexual feelings cross boundaries? A new play with Live music, set in the jungles and gardens of New York's Lower East Side: Sherezad's got an ache so deep in her soul it's driving her mad. Can Silvio Flores, with his guitar and lilting melodies, be Sherezad's Arabian Knight?
