Audacity, memory, and charisma... A work full of nostalgia and longing.
To maintain an audience’s attention throughout a monologue requires both an ingenious text and a first-rate actress. Fortunately, both conditions were met.
I still can't find a more impressive experience than that of Still... Forever. Seeing and hearing Tara Parra live shook all my senses and my emotions.
Theaters, auditoriums, classrooms, blackbox spaces of all sizes
Duration: 90 minutes

Still… Forever tells the story of two lovers who have had to separate in their youth. He has left, but he made sure she knows that he will always be by her side. Meanwhile, time has run its course, her children are gone and the wrinkles have come. After many years, the day when they shall meet again arrives and they will get to dance together again.
This work shows us luminous ways in which to approach the onset of age, disease, and the act of being in the last stretch of life.
This show is an endearing and fun first-person account—starring the famous octogenarian actress Tara Parra—where the boundaries between reality-fiction and audience-spectacle are blurred.
