Putting her life onstage was  nearly impossible challenge:  Nanin takes us into an incrediblycomplex life, and does it more effectively — and poetically than any theatrical biography I can recall.  Sensuous, compelling and thought provoking,  You don’t have to know anything at all to appreciate and get this story.

20160910_20350020160910_20352920160910_20355620160910_21184920160910_204501emailmg-netfirms2016-09-11-17-03-0720160910_22042820160910_19195620160910_21364420160910_18564720160910_19151720160910_19171820160910_19163720160910_21491120160910_22022920160910_220554

 

Nanín,  writer, producer, director, actress of Cuban descent wrote a
provocative and magnificent love story set during a time when Cuba was
considered a dangerous enemy to the U.S. The award-winning playwright
has sensitively blended a mixture of styles-teen eroticism, secrets,
violent thriller, and political provocation.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – SEPTEMBER 2, 2016 –

ODALYS NANÍN revives her popular play _Skin of Honey/Piel De Miel_ opening on September 10thand running through the 24th at the historic Macha Theatre/Films,located at _1107 N. KINGS ROAD, WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA. 90069_.
In 1961, during the botched Bay of Pigs invasion on the south coast of
Cuba, two beautiful 15-year old teenagers-Isabel and Amelia-find
themselves in a forbidden and torrid relationship that ultimately is
torn apart. In, 1980, after a 20-year separation, they are reunited.
As adults, neither Amelia (Nanín), a writer living in the U.S., nor
Isabel (KESIA ELWIN), a prima ballerina in the Cuban National Ballet,
has ever been able to erase their great love and attraction. The past
catches up with the present, where the women find themselves on a
dangerous adventure of a lifetime.
Nanín, a writer, producer, director, actress of Cuban descent wrote a
provocative and magnificent love story set during a time when Cuba was
considered a dangerous enemy to the U.S. The award-winning playwright
has sensitively blended a mixture of styles-teen eroticism, secrets,
violent thriller, and political provocation.
Recently, acting legend, AL PACINO saw a preview of _Skin of Honey_
and was blown away and commented it is a movie-worthy story. It is a
bold adult play that brings forth all the issues the LGBT community
still deals with in current times: violence and prejudices against
homosexuals.
“SKIN OF HONEY SEETHES WITH THE PASSION, EROTICISM AND STIRRING
POLITICAL CONTEXT THAT HAVE BEEN THE HALLMARKS OF NANÍN’S BEST
WORKS.” – IN MAGAZINE
ODALYS NANÍN
In everything artistic ODALYS NANÍN creates or is involved in, she
implements her three E’s motto: Educate, Enlighten and Entertain, be
it through cutting edge plays that push the boundaries, visual media
art and/or writing workshops.
_SKIN OF HONEY _IS AN UNDENIABLE TENDER EROTIC MELODRAMA.
