TEATRO LA AZOTEA
As part of the inaugural run of our 21 ISLANDS initiative, we are proud to bring directly from Puerto Rico, one of the most talked about theater troups to come out of the island in the last year!
LA AZOTEA (Rooftop Theater) captures the break-neck pace of contemporary life in Puerto Rico into powerful micro-plays of 15-20 minutes duration.
With more than a dozen original micro-play premieres to its credit, La Azotea is also known for performing on rooftops, back alleys, cafés, and other nontraditional theater spaces.
For their NYC debut, LA AZOTEA takes over Pregones Theater’s spacious Bronx theater, and collaborates with Pregones artists in the staging of 3 micro-plays in Spanish: BAJO CONTROL, SINFONÍA NO. 1, and PEQUEÑAS RAZONES.
The program will play out in roving format, with the audience broken up into micro-audiences of up to 20 persons, that take turns to see each micro-play staged in a different spot or corner of the host venue. Each micro-performance is unique, nonreplicable, and new.
After the final round, the audience reunites for “jangueo” or social time.

ABOUT 21 ISLANDS
A programming highlight of the two organizations’ recently announced merger, 21 ISLANDS pairs up artists and humanists from 21 different islands around the globe for performances, dialogues, and other creative interventions in The Bronx and Manhattan. This ambitious, multi-year undertaking aims at giving diverse local audiences opportunities to experience —through a kaleidoscope of art and conversation— the islander’s shifting but always distinct sense of being in the world. The project kicks off with a slate of distinguished artists from Puerto Rico, singer/songwriter Danny Rivera (March 7-8), composer and pianist Alfonso Fuentes (March 9), jíbaro folk music ensemble Mapeyé (March 28), and micro-theater company LA AZOTEA (April 25-26).
This program is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the NYC Council. Additional support provided by the Ford Foundation, Time Warner Inc., Booth Ferris Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, New York Community Trust, The Samuels Foundation, The Shubert Foundation, and Lucille Lortel Foundation. Southwest Airlines is the Official Airline of Pregones Theater and Puerto Rican Traveling Theater.
