Colectivo el Pozo moves to the warm and welcoming Citlalin Gallery in Pilsen for this collaboration with El Grupo Laboratorio Teatral. Three seemingly unrelated pieces—two originals and one from Chekhov—showcase intimate moments of clarity as experienced by a trio of tragic characters at the brink of very different public catastrophes. Though all subtitled in English, one is presented in Catalan, the others in Spanish, a challenge that's heeded in the pacing and emotionality of each performance. The highlight is Angelina Llongueras in an excerpt from Per Testimoni, Saskia, Rosa Victòria Gras's harrowing short play about the volatile mix of aging and romantic despair. It's an affecting if modest evening of works, and an auspicious sign for the company, which already meets and should only increase the demand for Spanish-language performances. —Dan Jakes
