DNAWORKS emerges from the pandemic with the next step towards in-person theater, a live, interactive virtual production of The Real James Bond…Was Dominican at Rochester, New York’s Geva Theatre
Center.

Christopher Rivas’ innovative production is a true story about Porfirio Rubirosa, Ian Fleming’s primary inspiration for Bond, and a young Dominican actor-to-be whose discovery of “Rubi” shakes his very foundation.

Rivas asks of Rubirosa’s legacy: “How did someone who had so much influence in the world, who was involved in so many things, who had the most successful franchise in history based on him, how did he vanish?” This production answers that burning question.

Set to a live percussion score, The Real James Bond…Was Dominican is a young man’s guide to love, sex, color, code-switching, white-washing, success, fake-it-till-you-make-it, and the roller coaster of finding one’s true self. Complete with audience participation, including audience props available for pickup, this timely artistic offering is performed in real time on Zoom, live from Geva Theatre Center’s Wilson stage.
