Piese de Jose Rivera

Cloud Tectonics
On a fantastically rainy night in Los Angeles, the city of Angels, a plain Joe named Anibal de la Luna picks up and brings home with him a poor, bedraggled woman hitchhiker who calls herself Celestina del Sol. She is fifty-four years old, she says, and she has been pregnant two years. Alone in his little house, sealed off from the wails of the decaying city outside, De la Luna and Del Sol come together, joining their bodies and their dreams.
Each Day Dies With Sleep
"...it's real subject is the primitive human struggle between animal instincts and civilized order. The language--poetic, intense, heightened, rude, stunted, funny, by turns--is always vivid. I simply testify that it is months since I was so worked up by characters in a play as here.... Rivera's play brings fresh imaginative vitality to the London theater. Its conception of the human condition as a psychic battleground--lively, funny, erotic, tragic--has a rare force." Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times
Lovers of Long Red Hair
Audience members enter one of several phone booths, pick up the receiver and listen to a three-minute play unfold in conversation.
"Gândindu-se la echilibrul delicat dintre lumi, Rivera scrie despre oameni arzând şi paturi plutitoare, despre îngeri păzitori şi nazişti, despre furtuna secolului şi cine romantice. Şi în timpul procesului ne cere să le privim ca fiind un tot, şi separat". (Tina Landau)
References To Salvador Dali Make Me Hot
A tall, heavy-set man in white stands on top of a gray cement building playing a violin, while a young woman sits in the yard below staring into the night sky. The fiddler on this roof is in the realm of the magical realism that's dear to the heart of Latino. The locale is the desert town of Barstow, California, a few months after the Gulf War. The opening scenes of the play focus on the surreal. Gabriela enters into a poetic conversation with the violinist who personifies the Moon.
