Marissa Chibas

MARISSA CHIBAS:
DAUGHTER OF A CUBAN REVOLUTIONARY

"A breathtakingly honest performer." Variety

World premiere

A production of the Center for New Performance at CalArts, in association with INTAR Theater

This solo tour de force tells an astonishing tale centered on three towering figures in the life of protean performer Marissa Chibas: her father, Raul Chibas, who cowrote the manifesto for the Cuban revolution with Fidel Castro; her uncle, Eddy Chibas, who was the frontrunner for the Cuban presidency in 1951 before committing suicide during a live radio broadcast; and her mother, Dalia Chibas, Miss Cuba runner-up in 1959. Zigzagging through her own stories and key episodes in the history of her illustrious family, Chibas gives an impassioned, live-wire performance that is propelled by her near-death experience in the Venezuelan Amazonia. An angel of death and an angel of life serve as guides on this journey. Directed by Mira Kingsley.
