GALA EN FAMILIA.
Curated by Artistic Producing Director Hugo Medrano, this series of videos entertain and reflect on several topics that resonate with audiences today.
For the Love of Tango
Rosalía Gasso and Alejandro Barrientos, choreographers and dancers in GALA's Ella es tango musical revue, tell us about how they fell in love with each other and decided to work together, which led them to becoming a famous tango couple touring the US, Europe, and Asia.
The Passion of Tango Is Female
Meet playwright Patricia Suárez, and actor and director Claudio Aprile. Native of Argentina, these artists are part of GALA's production of Ella es tango, a sizzling musical revue. They reflect on the importance of producing this show to highlight the stories of feminists in a time when feminism was yet not accepted by society.
Enjoy the delightful song No te importe saber by René Touzet, performed by singer Anamer Castrello and accompanied on piano by Mari Paz. Long-time DC residents, these artists travel back in time to recall the rhythms of the “feeling” era when singers and musicians were intricately linked.
Carlos Castillo, Kika Child, and Pablo Andrade, the principal actors in GALA’s Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, reveal how they approached the development of the characters they play; the challenge of playing the same role in different productions; and the importance of live performance.
A Director Shaped By His Caribbean Roots
Born in Puerto Rico to a Dominican mother, José Zayas was on course to become a doctor. Instead, he was lured by the arts and became a theater director who built a career in New York and DC. He now tackles another creative challenge with GALA company members whom he loves to work by directing Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, a play by Caridad Svich based on the novel by Nobel Prize-winner Mario Vargas Llosa.
From Cuba to GALA, A Lifetime In Theatre
Meet long-time company member Manolo Santalla, who is originally from Cuba and has performed in countless GALA and GALita plays. Santalla tells us about his journey with GALA, reveals why performing in Don Juan Tenorio at GALA in 2017 was personal, and his plans for the future.
Flamenco, An Intimate Experience
Omayra Amaya is a Flamenco dancer and director who returns to GALA in Íntimo, explaining how the show explores how our lives have changed because of the pandemic, when solitude, through thoughts and feelings, takes you on a journey of self-discovery, but also brings hope for the future.
