Fausto Rojas expressed: “a while ago Carlos and I, like my friend Francis Cruz, wanted to do something together on stage, we got together with Carlos to see another theatrical project, there he presents this work to us, finally motivating us to join together to perform this modern and avant-garde theatrical proposal. We invited my friend and partner Solly Durán, an outstanding Dominican actress abroad and the truth is that we have an exquisite creative process which we trust and have faith will be seen on stage ”.
“I hadn’t done theater since March 2020. Going back with this proposal by Carlos, apart from fulfilling an objective set a long time ago, challenges me in many ways, as it is a contemporary and avant-garde staging that takes us out of our comfort zone creative. Working together with my beloved and admired Fausto exalts me and it is an experience that adds value to my acting work. Creating bonds of friendship with Solly and entering together the playful plane of the theater has been revealing and confirms that art unites us in its time with people predestined to know and appreciate ”, highlighted Francis Cruz.
“Acting was no longer feeling the same, I felt a void when doing auditions or roles in movies. It occurred to me that it was time to go back to roots and restart. And so, as a magic and a sign, my friend Fausto tells me to meet our director Carlos Castro that he had a project in mind. I went by inertia. History Homeland, change and out, that’s where the crush happened! There was a very strong connection between everyone, including the great Francis Cruz who was present. After a decade without doing theater, I return with the luxury of being directed by Carlos Castro and sharing the stage with these giants of the theater, ”said Solly Durán.
