    “Platero Y yo”: a necessary book for the soul which won the author, Juan Ramon Jiménez, the Nobel Prize for Literature. In the text, joy and sorrow are very easily recognizable, very much like the two hairy ears of the much loved donkey. The pages of this extraordinary book transport us to the landscapes of Old Andalusia, through the tame soul and the sweet spirit of this Moorish breed of donkey.

    Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, one of the foremost guitar composers in the twentieth century, was inspired by the poems and set them to music. They can be described as musical commentaries, reinforcing and complementing Jiménez’s prose, and matching the changing moods. The guitar paints musical pictures of birds, village festivals and dancing, the colors of the sky at twilight, at times using such techniques as staccato to represent trotting, harmonics in an address to the moon, habanera rhythms, and a toccata to welcome Spring. The nature of the music is as gentle as Platero himself.

    The performance will be mainly in Spanish, the original language of Jimenez book.
    English text will be available.

    Director: Gerardo A. Placido
    Guitar: Manuele Colacci

     About the play:  

    Love Me Tinder is a fairy tale of “first dates” on of all days, Valentine’s Day. It takes the dating app Tinder and moves it into a fantasy world of Real, Fictitious, Medieval, and TV Personas meeting for that magical and mystical first date in today’s, always digitally connected, metaverse.

    Love Me Tinder is where analog reality blends with the digital sphere of fantasy and hopefully leads to romance. Valentine's Day, a night where dreams may or may not hold true.

    We welcome you to a fabulous night where love will be brought back to the world. A night where dreams may or may not hold true, as our characters meet their prospective soulmates. A night where we will discover if old loves can rekindle the forgotten past. Witness whether a naive young woman, pure as the driven snow, can find a prince in a not so charming DJ. It’s a night where an Instagram princess may finally meet her equally vain match. A night where a famed Kinsale pirate attempts to plot a nemesis’ demise with rum and a promise of debauchery. Discover if competing family traders in The English Market become one in union. Could there possibly be a “coming out” of sorts that leads to dinner and a movie between confused souls? Will someone with EPS soon have SPS? (You have to join us to understand that one!) After all, what happens at First Dates restaurant STAYS at First Dates restaurant.

    Love Me Tinder was devised and written by members of Rebel City Drama Club.
