Cancelado: The Mistery of Ganscons’ Christ

Veronica Cuesta theater

Unfortunately the performances programmed for September 15th and 16th had to be cancel. We are sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.

CCEMiami presents the play “The Mistery of Ganscons’ Christ” by the theater company Nao d’amores and directed by Ana Zamora at Miami Dade County Auditorium.

Nao d´amores, is a company with many years experience in renaissance theatre. This company is making now a plunge into the primitive theatre from a contemporaneous point of view. It is a recreation of the liturgical ceremony that was most probably performed at San Justo’s church in Segovia, Spain. The Romanic sculpture of the Cristo de los Gascones (gascons’ Christ) was specially built for that ceremony and it is one of the most significant pieces of Segovia’s artistic patrimony.

The dramaturgy is made with historic texts from different authors; there has been a serious research about musical pieces that could have been part of that kind of performances. As a result, they have a show that combines actors’ work with puppets theatre and live music to make an approach to the origin of modern theatre. A journey to the end of the Middle Age to travel through a microcosm built up with symbols, metaphors and allegoric images.

About Nao d’amores
