Caborca includes (in occasionally overlapping combinations) a playwright/director, designer, a handful of actors, and two stage managers. Over 15 years, they have amassed members from the University of Puerto Rico, Columbia University, and beyond, though were officially founded as a company in 2009.
Previous works include Barceloneta, de noche and FLORIDITA, my Love, both performed at IATI and LATEA Theatres, El correo de la noche, an international collaboration with Colombian director Eloisa Jaramillo, performed at IRT Theatre, and 2012’s immersive warehouse production of Open up, Hadrian, written by Artistic Director, Javier Antonio González, and directed by Meiyin Wang at Magic Futurebox, which Time Out gave four stars and called “opulent” and “delightful.” Since Hadrian, Caborca has been hard at work on various projects, including a reading series of our play THE FUTURE OF BOOKS, an original writers’ workshop, and most importantly, two fully produced showings as part of the Artist Space at Pregones residency of Zoetrope: Parts 1 and 2, their next original play written and directed by González. The two years since Hadrian have also brought Caborca five wonderful new members (except for Laura who’s ok). Caborca’s aesthetic influences and collaborators run the gamut between Latin American, Asian, European, and New York experimental traditions.
