SUSPENDED: Plata Quemada

Presented by ArtsEmerson at Emerson Paramount Center Robert J. Orchard Stage

ArtsEmerson today announces that it will suspend scheduled public gatherings beginning Friday, March 13, with the hope of continuing more regular activity by the end of April 2020.
In all instances, ArtsEmerson is investigating whether programming may be rescheduled to a later date, and all ticket-holders will be notified directly with information and instructions as soon as possible. We request that you wait for an email with instructions rather than calling the box office. Staff members are working as quickly as possible in these challenging times.

TEATROCINEMA pulls out all the stops to deliver a heart-pounding noir tale of bandits, betrayals and blowouts in Plata Quemada. Their groundbreaking storytelling intertwines live-action performances with eye-popping illustration and animation, creating a hyper-stylized graphic novel that comes to life right in front of audiences’ eyes.

The backstory: In Buenos Aires, 1965, a daring, complicated bank heist unraveled into a bloody saga that is infamous in South America to this day. Now, Ricardo Piglia’s controversial novel about these real-life events — Plata Quemada — has been adapted for the stage. After 2016’s intense and revelatory Historia de Amor, Chilean theatre makers TEATROCINEMA return to Boston with another U.S. premiere.
