FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A Spanish theatre expert will present "Theatre of the 1990s in Spain: A Cultural and Historical Retrospective" on Tuesday, June 14, at West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
The 7 p.m. presentation by Dr. Francisco Cabello is free and open to the public and will be held in Room 1305.
Originally from Spain, Dr. Cabello is a associate professor of Spanish at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. He was active in Spain's independent theatre movement in the 1970s. Since then, he has directed Spanish-language plays at a number of universities in the United States.
In his talk, he will explain the historical forces that helped shape Spanish theatre during the last decade of the 20th Century. He will discuss how Spanish theatre artists responded to the realities and expectations of the end-of-the-century era.
Dr. Cabello's published essays examine the work of prominent Spanish dramatists. He earned his master's in English from Claremont Graduate University in California and a doctorate in Spanish from the University of California at Davis.
His presentation is made possible by a West Virginia Humanities Council grant which is also funding his two-week residency at WVU Parkersburg. He will serve as a special consultant to the Humanities Division's Spanish Theatre Project. Additional information is available by contacting the division office, 424-8301.
