Every year, Modern Languages and Literatures hosts "Multicultural Voices." This celebratory event honors our outstanding seniors and gives all IC students an opportunity to express their passion for languages and cultures through various performances: songs, poetry readings, one-act plays, and/or other creative activities. Performances in English will be considered, provided that they are connected with a language offered by the DMLL.
As the ninth anniversary of the March 11th terrorist attacks in Madrid approaches, IC Teatro will present Ana Diosdado’s Harira on Tuesday, March 5th at 6pm in the Handwerker Gallery.
In one moving and beautiful act, Diosdado transports us to a Madrid kitchen on March 11, 2004, just minutes before the carefully planned attack on the city’s commuter trains during rush hour. Still considered Spain’s most deadly terrorist attack, the explosion of ten bombs on four different trains rocked the city and the country’s very existence. Our story, directed by Gipsy Fernández, weaves the lives of the immigrant house worker, Amina (Reisy Veloz), with that of her Spanish employer, Carmen (Yuberky Reyes), melding their memories and life experiences while they prepare the Morrocan soup, harira, in the comfort of Carmen’s kitchen. Though culturally dissimilar, the women grow in friendship through their discussions of their families, their traditions, and the event that would forever rewrite their lives.
