View theatre details
How to Eat an Orange is a one-person play about the visual artist and activist Claudia Bernardi growing up in Argentina under the military junta and her subsequent work digging up the past. A sensuous braiding of desaparecidos’ stories through the lens of a survivor. Histories are woven together in a kaleidoscopic play that depicts how both families and justice may be reconfigured. We time travel, subverting and countering realities. This theater piece is a fight for excavation, the archeology of a lifetime—of lifetimes. 

For the past three decades French Algerian American award-winning playwright, librettist and activist Catherine Filloux has been traveling to conflict areas writing plays that address human rights. Through the lens of this new world premiere play, originally commissioned by INTAR, Catherine frames her hope as a changemaker. Presented by La MaMaHow to Eat an Orange is a New Georges Supported Production.
