María Irene Fornés (May 14, 1930 – October 30, 2018) was a Cuban-American avant garde playwright and director whose unique and personal  productions examine humanity and its relationship with economic conditions. She was a leading figure in the Off-Off-Broadway and Avant Garde movement from the 1960’s and a renowned voice in the canon of Hispanic-American literature. During the Days & Nights Festival her life and work will be celebrated  in Carmel. Featuring a World Premiere,  Philip Glass transforms acclaimed playwright Maria Irene Fornés play The Drowning into a pocket opera! With breathtaking original score and live music in an  intimate setting these performances are helmed by NYC’s prestigious team of Director JoAnne Akalaitis and Lighting Designer Jennifer Tipton. A staged reading of Maria Irene Fornés play Mud, performed by some of the countries best actors, rounds out the work. Also to be screened is the 2018 film The Rest I Make Up, a collaboration between Fornés and filmmaker Michelle Memran exploring Fornés ‘remembered past’ as she begins a descent into dementia. A wonder and a delight in the exploration of the unquenchable creative spirit.
