Controversy, conspiracy, and corruption are colliding at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art — and not just because of its current exhibition, “Covert Operations: Investigating the Known Unknowns.” Arizona State University's Banned Plays Reading Series has teamed up with the Scottsdale art venue to perform a one-night-only public reading of The Walls.
Written by Latin American playwright Griselda Gambaro, The Walls, or Las Paredes, is a bold portrayal of the unjust military reign in Argentina during the 1960s; an often heard story of totalitarian government suppressing the individual, illustrated by a young man wrongfully incarcerated and held captive in quarters that become increasingly confined, doubling as both his home and his holding cell. The Walls is presented in collaboration with the Performance in the Borderlands initiative at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. The show starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 13, inside the lounge of the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, 7374 East Second Street, Scottsdale. Admission is free.
