Delejos (from afar)
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
When writer/actor/comedian Julie Piñero's partner, VR video game designer Jose Zambrano unexpectedly died in 2019, she utilized his unfinished VR video game "Delejos,” a game about overcoming distance and loving from afar, to explore the landscape of her own grief, and overcome her distance from Zambrano. The result is Delejos (from afar), a one-woman immersive theatrical experience incorporating story, song, light, and a sprinkling of magical realism to guide the audience through an "at-home VR experience”. Delejos (from afar) is presented over Zoom, using the medium to comment further on distance, and transforming what are typically the limitations and frustrations of the now-ubiquitous platform into a stunning commentary on the fragility of life by feeling like it could collapse at any moment. Delejos (from afar) further resonates in the time of COVID as people are denied a chance to mourn with loved ones and are themselves distanced.
Delejos (from afar) was written by Julie Piñero (and Jose Zambrano), performed by Julie Piñero, and produced by Caitlin Stone. A limited weekly run will begin March 4 and run through May 1.
