From August 31-September 5th, Mauricio Salgado and Marco Ramirez were granted a residency at the Kennedy Center in order to complete a new work and present it at the Kennedy Center’s Page to Stage Festival (September 3-5).
“A Million Billion Thunders” is Nico’s telling of the literal and metaphoric storms he faces and fights. The piece is for an actor and a musician. Although the piece is still in development, it has already generated interest in Washington DC, and Mauricio and Marco have already committed to producing the show in the near future.
During the residency, they also collaborated with Alejandro Rodriguez (dramaturgy) and Steve McWilliams (Guitar). The project was made possible by Gregg Henry’s generosity, the Director of the Kennedy Center’s American College Theatre Festival.
