× CreArte Latino Presents MADENUSA

All performances are in Spanish, with English surtitles available.

"MADENUSA" by Claudia Soroka is inspired by Fernández Tiscornia's play "Made in Lanús" (Made in Argentina), which premiered in 2011, and also addresses one of the various facets of the immigrant community. The story follows Mabel and Osvaldo, long-time residents of the United States, who invite “La Yoli” and "El Negro"* from Argentina in an attempt to restart an interrupted life. What happens when the world one left behind suddenly returns? With skill and sensitivity, honed by life itself, Soroka has created an entertaining, fresh, and appealing work that highlights the immigrant experience and delves into the complexities of adapting to a new culture. The play evokes the dilemma of those who left and their impact on those who stayed.

*A common Argentine term of endearment

There is a talk back with the dramaturgist after the performances on August 17th.


“MADENUSA” de Claudia Soroka se inspira en la obra de Fernández Tiscornia “Made in Lanús” (Hecho en Argentina), presentada en 2011, y también aborda una de las diversas facetas de la comunidad inmigrante. La historia sigue a Mabel y Osvaldo, residentes de larga data en Estados Unidos, quienes invitan a “La Yoli” y “El Negro”* desde Argentina en un intento por reiniciar una vida interrumpida. ¿Qué sucede cuando el mundo que uno dejó atrás regresa repentinamente? Con destreza y sensibilidad, forjadas por la vida misma, Soroka ha creado una obra entretenida, fresca y atractiva, que resalta la experiencia del inmigrante y profundiza en las complejidades de adaptarse a una nueva cultura. La obra evoca el dilema de quienes se fueron y su impacto en quienes se quedaron.

Todas las actuaciones son en español, con subtítulos en inglés disponibles.

*Término cariñoso común en Argentina.
