Benedita Pereira

Arte Institute suggests the plays “Rockaby” and "Words and Music" with the portuguese actress Benedita Pereira.


LEIMAY Black Studio Artist & Friends Showcase: Polina Klimovitskaya, Theresa Magario, James Gardella

“I Take Good Care of My Corpse (Part I) – An Old Poem Upon Beckett’s Rockaby (Part II) by Polina Klimovitskaya / Terra Incognita Theater

Part I – The busy flies in the existential vacuum of modern life — a funeral party of happy corpses. Part II – Life suspended on a thread of light; identity falling away on the threshold of death. “Rockaby” alludes to an old lullaby in which a baby’s cradle falls from a treetop, interweaving images of life and death, balancing on the edge of each other.

The show will take place in the SOAK festival at LEIMAY CAVE in Williamsburg:
June 8th, 8:00 pm
Tickets: $15 online / $17 at the door
Membership discounts available

"Words and Music" 

"Words and Music" is a radio play by Beckett, adapted to the stage. It's part of The Beckett Cycle, where other rarely produced short pieces written by him will be performed. The piece is extremely engaging, fun and terrifying at the same time and it's directed by the young Andrew Sowers.

The show will take place at The Brick also in Williamsburg on the following dates and times:

Sunday 6/9 8pm
Wednesday 6/12 9pm
Friday 6/14 9pm
Tuesday 6/18 9pm
