Creator and director Juan Souki has crafted a searing piece about love, life and fear in the midst of war. Featuring a haunting score by Xavier Losada as well as stunning multimedia images, "Love: A Tragic Etude" deals with moments of inevitable separation and the effects of institutionalized power over human relations. It explores the process of decision making in extreme and unexpected situations.
Juan Souki is a multimedia artist from Caracas, Venezuela. He is the Artistic Director of the Caracas-New York International Theatre Project, which was founded in 2004 to promote a theatrical rendezvous among actors, musicians, designers and directors from all over the world. In addition to his work with the collective, he has directed The Cherry Orchard at the Classic Stage Company.
Originally commissioned by the prestigious Corp Group Foundation, "Love: A Tragic Etude" premiered in Caracas, Venezuela in 2005, and has since been developed further for its New York debut.
