Organized by the Cuban Research Institute at Florida International University, the Cuban Theater Digital Archive and the Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami, the theater group La Má Teodora and Dinorah Pérez Rementería, art critic and UM graduate student, this conference brings together, for the first time in over 40 years, Cuba's most important living playwrights from the 1960s: Antón Arrufat (Cuba), Abelardo Estorino (Cuba), Eduardo Manet (Cuba-France), and Matías Montes Huidobro (Cuba-USA). Led by designers Eduardo Arrocha (Cuba), Jesús Ruiz (Cuba), and Rafael Mirabal (Cuba-USA), the morning session will examine stage and costume design in the 1960s theater movement. The afternoon session will address theater's early paths, splendor, and obstacles faced by the playwrights who emerged in that period, as well as playwrights who returned to Cuba in 1959 to join the theater movement.
