AXIS MUNDI Screening

In conversation with Tim Robbins and Guillermo Calderón

* La presentación de Axis Mundi / En conversación con Tim Robbins y Guillermo Calderón será presentada en inglés y traducida al español. 

If you missed this season’s first Axis Mundi, you’re in luck! Thursday, March 11th, at 12 pm (PT), you can tune in for a screening of this gem of a conversation with our Artistic Director, Tim Robbins, and Chilean screenwriter, playwright, and theater director, Guillermo Calderón!

A co-founder of Teatro en el Blanco theater company, Calderón wrote and directed Neva and December and has been commissioned to write and direct by the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, Theater Basel, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, the Royal Court Theater, Center Theater Group, and the Public Theater in New York City, where he also directed Neva. His plays have been presented in more than 25 countries.

His co-written screenplay Violeta Went to Heaven won the World Cinema Jury Prize for Drama at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. He co-wrote The Club, directed by Pablo Larrain, winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival 2015, and nominated for the Golden Globes in the Foreign Language category. The script also won the Silver plaque at the Chicago International Film Festival. Guillermo also wrote the script for Neruda, directed by Pablo Larraín and presented at the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (The Director’s Forthnight) during Cannes Film Festival 2016. He also wrote Araña (directed by Andres Wood), and Ema, directed by Pablo Larraín.

The event, produced in partnership with Fundación Teatro a Mill, will be streamed on March 11th at 12 pm (PT) through Zoom (Spanish interpretation available).

Hosted by our Artistic Director, Tim Robbins, this series of public forums introduces us to creative minds from all around the world. With each conversation, we’re bringing together artists who shape culture and asking vital questions about the future of theater and the arts and what it means to create in pandemic times.

In pre-pandemic times, with the Axis Mundi series, we have hosted many special evenings with guests from the worlds of music, literature, and journalism and have been honored to have Jackson Browne, Bill Moyers, Sister Helen Prejean, Gore Vidal, Juan Gonzales, and many others share their wisdom and talent on our stage. Each one of these public forums helped our community bridge the gap between isolation and despair to a sense of community and shared hopefulness and we hope to ignite the very same spirit through our digital stage.
