'This incredibly talented cast offers a flawless performance...a must-see for those with a reverence for wonderful art...'  5 SUNS (out of 5) 


- Edmonton Sun

                   NERUDA NUDE is an original work inspired by Pablo Neruda's early poems,                      where seven electrifying physical performers deliver the romantic works in the nude.

Poems that, when published in the 1920's were rejected by critics for being too raw and explicit, are now devoured by readers all over the world. Through the years, Neruda's poems have become some of the best known verses of love and loss.

NERUDA NUDE is a combination of physical theatre, poetry, movement, and dance that illustrates the words of the poet in motion; while exploring the freedom and acceptance of the human body in its most intimate state.


WARNING: Contains naked verses and full frontal poetry.
