Ladrón que roba a ladrón

Film: Ladrón que roba a ladrón

7 pm

Two former thieves reunite to rob the biggest thief they know—a TV infomercial guru who has made millions selling worthless health products to poor Latino immigrants. While his empire is nearly impossible to infiltrate, they know that by going undercover as day laborers they can pull off the heist. When none of their associates want the job, they turn to the real thing for help, forming a team of criminal amateurs with just the right skills. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2007; directed by Joe Menéndez; Spanish with English subtitles; 98 minutes; rated PG-13.

Before Night Falls, based on the writer’s autobiography of the same name, is the story of Cuban poet and novelist Reinaldo Arenas, born in rural Oriente province in 1943. After joining the revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power in 1959, Arenas moved to Havana, where he joined a circle of writers and artists and gained critical acclaim for his own work. His political writing and openly gay lifestyle eventually led to imprisonment by the Castro regime, failed attempts to leave the country, and his final departure from Cuba in the 1980 Mariel boatlift. Arenas died in Manhattan in 1990. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series; in June, the series features films by award-winning Spanish actor Javier Bardem.

Marco Flores-01

Festival Flamenco Internacional: Compañía Marco Flores, Entrar al Juego

June 10
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

8 pm

Festival Flamenco Internacional de Alburquerque presents Compañía Marco Flores in Entrar al Juego. In this contemporary and very theatrical production, Flores manipulates space and experiments with time—slowing it down, speeding it up, and changing its direction to open up a temporary timeline from another world and trap people and objects in an alternative dimension.

Flores’ first large-scale choreographic work, DeFlamencas, explored the female universe; his second creation, Tránsito, reflected his interest in looking within. Subsequently, he examined men’s actions and relationships in Laberíntica. With this new work, he expands his artistic focus and direction as well as the dynamics of his choreography. The creative process in Entrar al Juego, activated by intergenerational concerns, begins by bringing together artists of various ages and origins, with differing techniques and experiences. Breaking with traditional conceptions of hierarchy and methodology, Flores involves the artists in a collective composition, where the actions of each are essential to the development of the others, as all discover their own strategies to move, to be still, and to continue with the work, both individually and as a group. Along with stage director and choreographer Juan Carlos Lérida, he proposes to the participants in Entrar al Juego that they dance in a timeless place, and the audience witnesses how people transform when confronted with the need to continue, to resolve the unknown nature of that place.

Jesus Carmona-01

Festival Flamenco Internacional: Compañía Jesús Carmona, Impetu’s

June 15
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

8 pm

Festival Flamenco Internacional de Alburquerque presents Compañía Jesús Carmona in Impetu’s, an evening of extraordinary contemporary flamenco along with classic Spanish dance.

From his beginnings as a dancer in other companies through the founding and maturation of his own company, Jesús Carmona has always aspired to have his creations serve as a showcase for Spanish culture. In Impetu’s, he draws upon the great musical compositions that have contributed to his artistic growth and built his life and character, both professionally and personally. New versions of these works allow for innovation, while preserving the legacy of fine music that gives the show its emotional impact.

Impetu’s features renowned musicians Daniel Jurado, Óscar Lago, Thomas Potirón, Luqui Losada, and Juan José Amador, with lighting by David Pérez. The talents of these artists, together with the strength and energy of Carmona’s choreography and staging and the masterworks of great Spanish composers, combine in a show that will keep the audience enthralled from the very first chord, and that can be summed up in the single word Impetu’s.
