In September, Maddy line produces Distant Star, an adaptation of the Roberto Bolaño novel of the same name, for Caborca (www.caborca.org) in the Underground Theater at Abrons Arts Center on the Lower East Side.
The year is 1973. In Chile, a group of young poets meet to write, argue, critique and flirt. Days later, the government collapses and the president is shot. Amidst the brutality, one poet rises to fame as a skywriting daredevil—and, possibly, as a killer. An eerily relevant drama unfolds in Brooklyn-based theater company Caborca’s adaptation of Roberto Bolaño’s novel Distant Star, a harrowing tale of fascism and its aftermath.
The work, written by Javier Antonio González and directed and co-conceived by Shira Milikowsky, weaves the author’s memories of life (and death) under Pinochet’s American-backed dictatorship into a perverse, seductive noir of urgent political necessity.
