The play uses corporeal mime, dance and live music to tell a universal story about life in contemporary society (Photograph by Stela Salinas)center_img La Caja explores multiple levels of alienation in contemporary society.“Martínez” suffers from a rare psychic disorder and is undergoing treatment by a medical team of doctors and nurses. As his therapy progresses, the patient gradually becomes lost in an imaginary world, blurring the border separating reality from fiction. As the world becomes more and more ambiguous, a box containing the cure for all evil is discovered. But what is inside the box and why is it so hard to open?Los Escultores del Aire productions incorporate physical theatre, dance and live music. The company, which has toured Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, Macedonia, Poland, Sweden, Morocco, Colombia, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica, has earned an international reputation for using Corporeal Mime then adding such theatrical devices as circus spectacles, dance and movement and object manipulation.The JCTC presentation of La Caja will be the first time Los Escultores del Aire performs in New Jersey. According to Mai Rojas, Director, La Caja the play is the five-year old company’s most ambitious production yet and its universal themes are well suited to close out New Jersey’s first international theater festival.“It is a very interactive experience, where the audiences aren’t just watching a show, but rediscovering truths through the eyes of the main character,” said Rojas. “Our musicians, dancers and actors work together to tell one story about broken relationships but also of hope. For us it is very important to talk about truths we all share. We don’t believe in borders. People come to this play from different social contexts, but as human beings, we are all the same. No Matter which country we present La Caja in, every single person understands and connects with the play.”The Jersey City production is actually the final stop for a tour that included performances in Europe and South America. Although there will be projected subtitles in English, the narrative is mainly conveyed through movement, action and music. For Rojas, having the final shows of La Caja’s current tour close out Voices: International Theater Festival is fitting for a theater company whose cast & crew all hail from different nations, including Spain, Italy, Costa Rica, Panama and Chile.“We’re an international theater company so we are looking forward to being part of an international theater festival for our first time in Jersey City,” said Rojas.The 1st annual Voices: International Theater Festival has brought a range of international productions to the black box theater at Merseles Studios. The festival began in August with Jazz Italiano with an intimate concert by IDR_Italian Doc Remix, and featured Watch Now, a Slovakian production and The Truth, from Poland.“Our audiences have made Voices a successful festival that we can’t wait to bring back next year,” said Olga Levina, Artistic Director, JCTC. “JCTC’s mission is to present progressive theater and arts that tackle the issues of time. La Caja truly explores an issue that is global in scope yet relevant to our community. Our first Voices proved that there’s an audience in Jersey City for professional, cutting edge theater and La Caja is the perfect way to close our inaugural international festival.”Photo Caption: JCTC closes out Voices: International Theater Festival with La Caja, by the Barcelona-based Los Escultores del Aire.

Share Tweet Sharecenter_img Share 63 Views   no discussions Photo credit: cannabis-pictures.comA Laudat family of four has been jointly charged on three charges of possession of Cannabis, cultivation of Cannabis and possession of ammunition.Twenty-two year old Randy Justin Corriette, twenty year old Ronnie Mickelle Corriette, seventy-one year old Peter Corriette and fifty-one year old Jacqueline Corriette were brought before Magistrate Evelina Baptiste where the charges were read to them.Randy Justin Corriette pleaded guilty to all three charges, while his brother, father and mother all pleaded not guilty.The facts of the case presented to the Court by Police Prosecutor Corporal Toussaint indicates that a search warrant was executed by Woman Police Constable Luke L on the home of the Defendants at 5:30am on the 24th of August where four clear plastic bags with what appeared to be Cannabis, one live round of .32 ammunition, and twenty-seven trees of what appeared to be Cannabis plants about thirty feet from the house were seized.Woman Police Constable Luke L questioned the Defendant regarding the contents of his search and he replied, “Seeds that there man, marijuana seeds” referring to the four clear plastic bags.The Defendant’s Counsel; Kondwani Williams, in pleading to the Court on his behalf said his client had found himself in a very unfortunate situation.According to Mr Williams’ submission to the Court; the Defendant is employed with the Rain Forest Aerial Tram as a lift operator but is unable to earn any form of remuneration from his employer as they are closed due to the down time in the tourist season.Williams also highlighted that his client has co-operated fully with the police, accepts responsibility for his wrongful actions, is very apologetic for having put his family through this ordeal and the intended purpose of the live round of point 32 ammunition was to make a pendant for his gold chain. He therefore pleaded with the Court to be lenient with the Defendant and give him a second chance so that he could look beyond his predicament.Magistrate Evelina Baptiste in sentencing the Defendant informed him that she had considered all factors; those in his favor as well as those not in your favor, those being his guilty plea and no previous offenses.Mr Corriette was sentenced to pay $3750.00 by February 28th, 2012 or in default spend one year imprisonment on the charge of possession of ammunition.On the charge of possession of Cannabis he was ordered to pay $1200.00 by February 28th, 2012 or in default could face five months imprisonment, and on the charge of cultivation of Cannabis he was ordered to pay $25, 000.00 or in default spend nine months imprisonment.The Police Prosecutor did not present any evidence against Ronnie Corriette, Peter Corriette and Jacqueline Corriette therefore Magistrate Baptiste informed them that the matters filed against them have been dismissed for want of prosecution.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
