ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Proyecto Machos is a documentary theater project that surveys gay masculinities in rural southern Spain. Our current research revolves around a real crime that happened in Priego de Córdoba (Andalusia, Spain) two years ago. The case remains under judicial secrecy. It is our hope that this project will ultimately illuminate a part of the gay experience in “rural” southern Spain and contribute to the scarce dramatic literature on the topic.
José, a 43-year-old man, kills his partner Juan, 23, to later kill himself. They are found dead in a garage carport days later. A gay theater student researcher from a nearby town comes back from abroad to conduct interviews, with the hope of shining a light on the causes of the murder.
*Contains references to intimate partner violence and graphic language
*This is a Zoom reading, with some other mixed media of previous play development on the project, of the work-in-progress. The showing will be followed by a Q&A with the project’s creator, LuisDa Molina-Rueda
