CSU Summer Arts begins the third week of their summer festival with a performance by the internationally acclaimed actress, Indira Pensado as she performs “Crastchep” at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, July 15 the John Wright Theatre. Tickets can be purchased online or at the John Wright Theatre box office.
A breathtaking solo performance, “Crastchep” synthesizes dance, music, and theatre to create an abstract portrait of the soul. Indira uses a range of feminine imagery and performative language to examine the female body and voice. The piece draws from Butoh-a form of Japanese dance theatre.
Since 2000, Indira has conducted voice workshops throughout Mexico, Argentina, Costa Rica, the United States, and Singapore. She is a designated Linklater professor trained by Antonio Ocampo, Andrea Haring, and Kristin Linklater. As an actor and director, Indira is known for the powerful use of the voice and body on stage. She currently teaches voice at the National School of Theatre in Mexico City and the Intercultural Theater Institute in Singapore. She is a member of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association. She also founded Médula Teatro and Los 4 Gatos, two theatre groups dedicated to the scene and research for stage.
