Sinteatro Intimus is a collective of artists who are striving to bring theatre back to its original ritual form. We aim to strip our work down to the core, presenting it in its purest state. Our minimalist approach to the work allows us the freedom to create photographs of the soul without the distraction of conventional forms. This ideal carries over into every aspect of our performances, from the physical space to our relationship with our audience. We enjoy breaking the rules, searching to illuminate the conditions that bind us all together as humans. www.Sinteatrointimus.org
“Our highest recommendation. A modern classic about tyranny in the family and in the state, performed by a duo of actors with enormous energy and talent, and directed masterfully by the author… It’s the kind of politically potent work that we associate with La MaMa.”

“ ‘Golondrinas/Swallows,’ which opened on April 16 at the venerable La MaMa theatre, examines the problem of political turmoil in Venezuela…Direction by the playwright is exemplary, as is the completely fluid and accessible translation by Francine Jacome (and a poem translated by James Cascaito). Music by Fina Monc and Maria Eugenia Atilano adds much to the intense and melancholy atmosphere…Here is an opportunity to think. Take advantage of it. “Golondrinas” is well worth your time. ”
