“Swelling with art, heart and high style”  —Los Angeles Times

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

Inspired by Octavio Paz’s The Labyrinth of Solitude, a collection of essays on Mexican thought and identity, Solitude explores love, death, destiny and family through a contemporary lens. Set on the day of the million-immigrant march, a wealthy lawyer hosts a reception following his mother’s funeral, gathering together the childhood friends he left behind 20 years ago. The characters at this unexpected reunion dance and sing, confess and share secrets, cry together and laugh together, accompanied by live music from cellist Semyon Kobialka. Elegantly staged and filled with emotional charge, Solitude explores Paz’s “profoundest fact of the human condition,” as wine pours and music flows.
