Subsequently to the staging of these plays, BAiT will select and send four emerging U.S. playwrights to Buenos Aires and partner them there with translators and similarly acclaimed experimental theatre companies—culminating in four Spanish language world premieres.

Description

Buenos Aires is renowned as the playwriting epicenter of Latin America. Particularly over the past decade, new theatre from Argentina has captured the attention of South America, Europe, Australasia and now, the United States.

BAiT (Buenos Aires in Translation) epitomizes true international theatrical collaboration, bringing together four of the most dynamic playwrights from Buenos Aires and pairing them with four cutting-edge U.S.-based directors to present a repertory program of English language world premieres. This is the first time that any of these remarkable playwrights will have their plays presented in the United States.
