GERARDO FULLEDA LEÓN, UN AUTOR ENAMORADO
Santiaguero of pure blood, Gerardo Fulleda Leon was a restless boy and lover of Literature. Among books, he discovered the passion for the theater and begins to write plays. In 1961, he began to study in the Seminar of Dramaturgy of the National Theater of Cuba.
Fulleda Leon has worked in the field of dramaturgy and stage management. He has directed the Rita Montaner Theater Company for many years, but his work as a playwright endorses him as a dramaturge of compelling reference in the Cuban theater.
In the plays of Fulleda Leon it can be appreciated the ability to recreate contexts drawing interesting cartoons of other times. The racial theme is another line that has characterized his writing.
Among his most important texts we can mention Plácido, Prize of the Competition Teatro Estudio in 1982; Chago de Guisa,
Casa de las Americas Award in 1989, Remolino en las Aguas and one of his recent creations, La pasión desobediente,
a text dedicated to Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda.
At 75, Fulleda holds not only the National Theater Prize but also the strength and clarity of a playwright in love, the perseverance and youth of those who always have something to say.
