Cuba Bound: Suffolk Pair Represent USA at International Women Festival Magdalena sin Fronteras

1/6/2017

margarita-espada-santosMargarita Espada, coordinator for the Shakespeare Festival at Suffolk County Community College, and a performer artist and educator in collaboration with Joan Wozniak, a Suffolk County Community College Media Services photographer and videographer will travel to Santa Clara, Cuba to represent the United States at the International Women Festival Magdalena sin Fronteras from January 10 – 20. The festival theme will be Lives: Group, Theater,  and Reality; and will include theater makers worldwide.

Espada’s “Resilience” is a devised performance installation that explores language on stage and investigates new narratives. The actor’s body and new technology are used to create a conversation about borders, identity and adapting in the face of adversity, trauma, or crisis. Espada and Wozniak will also lecture about her research on the role of the actor and theatre narratives in the new digital era.

Joan Wozniak is a multimedia storyteller who collaborates with Espada as a visual artist.  Wozniak integrates images, projectors, connectors, digital sensors and created new computer code to control the performance’s interactive technology. Wozniak uses images to represent the facets of experience, reality, and memory. Interaction and projection give scale and context to the live actor. This piece will explore new theater language and relationship of image/actor/audience.

The Magdalena Project is a dynamic cross-cultural network of women’s theatre and performance, facilitating critical discussion, support, and training.

Suffolk Innovative Theater Program Welcomes Romanian Performers to College Stage

antisocial

Antisocial, a production by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University will be performed at Suffolk County Community College on September 27.


A Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts study abroad program named “one of four outstanding proposals” by SUNY earlier this year, and awarded a SUNY Chancellor’s Grant for Innovative Study Abroad Programs will kick off the fall semester by welcoming a Romanian theater group to the college’s Ammerman Campus later this month.

The performance on September 27 at Suffolk’s Shea Theatre on the Selden Campus is produced by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University and will feature a performance of Antisocial.  Antisocial is the story of high school students in Romania who create a secret group on social media. The teachers find out, infiltrate and take action; with the support of some of the students.

Next spring, Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts students will collaborate with students from Lucian Blaga University utilizing the SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning Model that employs a variety a technological tools (social media, Skype) in a team taught class.  The students will travel to Romania next summer to perform with their Romanian counterparts at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. The Sibiu International Theatre Festival has grown in importance and prestige since its founding in the early 1990’s and attracts participants from more than 70 countries, has hundreds of scheduled events and in years past has attracted more than a half million spectators during its 10-day run. Attendees include performing arts groups, filmmakers and critics.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our students to not only participate in study abroad, but to collaborate and perform with their contemporaries starting from their laptops to such a prestigious international festival,” said Suffolk County Community College Director of Theatre Arts and Academic Chair Charles Wittreich, Jr. ’86
