Productions

  

Margarita creates and produces original theatre through Margarita Blush Productions in collaboration with an ensemble of diverse international artists and organizations.

Ascend

Ascend is a production of poetic visual theatre that was created during Margarita’s fellowship year at the University of Iowa. The show was created collaboratively by the entire ensemble – performers, director, designers, musicians, and everyone on the creative team who wished to give input. It was born out of our hearts, imaginations, and dreams. It is our gesture of love to the world and humanity.

Ascend breaths and pulsates; it moves the heart, the body, and the soul. It stirs something deep inside of us that cannot be explained, but only felt. It is a cluster of lights and images which allows audiences to create their own constellations. When creating theatre of the imagination, theatre that strives to make the invisible visible, the guiding inspiration is to sweep the audience on a journey and entrust them to engage fully in the artistic experience.

The Black Scarf Project

The Black Scarf Project is a one-man clown show that explores themes of identity and freedom. The show will combine contemporary clown work with elements of puppetry. The project is driven by the quote “When I discover who I am, I’ll be free” (Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man).

The  Black Scarf Project portrays the journey of a naïve clown character, Yelraf (portrayed by Ian), exploring his personal and cultural identity through the past, present, and future. His own stories will intertwine with historical moments in search of meaning, belonging, and freedom. Forgotten, erased, or slayed figures from Black American history (such as the “Wereth Eleven” soldiers in WWII or Elijah McClain in 2019) will come to life in parallel to the clown’s own life. Together, they will paint powerful image of a contemporary Black man’s life, thoughts, feelings, and aspirations. Humor and woe will juxtapose to take the audience on a deeply felt journey of discovery. The show will invite personal introspections and reflections of the role we all play in the fight for justice and equity.
