The audacious, edgy, and explosive Afro-Cuban actor and playwright Jorge Enrique Caballero made his U.S. Debut at Ideal Glass in April 2018, with two performances of his monumental play Kid Chocolate.

Based on the spectacular life and career of boxer Eligio Sardiñas Montalvo, the late Cuban World Lightweight Champion, the 40-minute piece was performed in Spanish with simultaneously projected subtitles and translated narration.

In addition to Kid Chocolate, Caballero has written 3 other plays based on historical Cuban figures and has acted in numerous films.

The Final Chapter

The Final Chapter

The Final Chapter is an apocalyptic celebration through movement, video, music and text of ancestral rituals with elements of Butoh, 19th century circus, and contemporary dance. Pictured here is a performance taking place at Ideal Glass in February 2017.

Featuring art-wear works by Uta Bekaia, the stage is conceived as a fashion arena where costumes are the embodiment of animal instincts, dreams and desires. Digging in the unconscious’ most primal nature – violence and sexuality – the performance offers a contemplation of vileness’ hidden beauty.
