Directed by Salvino Raco
Designed by Salvino Raco
Dramaturgy by Micol Bez and Angelo Vannini
Freely Inspired by the book Global Gay by Frédéric Martel
Based on a book by French author/journalist Frédéric Martel, Global Gay is a compelling dramatization of the cruelty facing queer people around the world by state-sanctioned methods as well as deeply rooted cultural norms.
The U.S. premiere of Global Gay dramatizes the plight of queer people around the world as they claim their human rights in the face of authoritarian regimes and homophobic cultural norms. In the spirit of the "theater of engagement," Salvino Raco has crafted a provocative narrative that challenges audiences to abandon their complacency and squarely confront the issues faced by many millions of LGBTQ people outside of Europe and North America. Salvino Raco, based in Paris, brings "fire and fury" to his dramatizations of contemporary social and political issues.
