Art, when friends meet …
By Sandra Ríos
Art, a play written by French actress and playwright Yasmina Reza, makes you think about why your friends are your friends.
In this case the pretext is a blank canvas on which the brush strokes are emotions and judgments left unspoken until a situation boils over and exposes sentiments stored up for years, bringing into question a friendship that has stopped thriving through neglect. A line spoken in the play is, “Do not lose sight of friends because they escape like sand between your hands,” sticks in the viewers’ minds amid the laughter the play generates.
Art, presented in Spanish, was adapted and directed by Christopher Ramirez, who also performs in the play along with Edgar Montoya and Christian Zaid. This staging has already been presented more than 50 times with great success.
