The Dark Stone short film premiered in NYC in May 2022. We are now releasing the film as weekly episodes online. Tune in every Wednesday for a new segment of this profound, timely story.
The Dark Stone, by internationally celebrated playwright Alberto Conejero, explores what happens when a confrontation with another becomes a confrontation with the self. The Dark Stone, featured in our Staged Reading Series 2018 and Spotlight on Contemporary Spanish Theater in 2021, is a tribute to the victims of the Spanish Civil War and a homage to Lorca, one of the greatest poets and playwrights from Spain. AENY’s film reimagines this story of difference and reconciliation as a preview for its upcoming stage debut in New York and DC.
