Continuing JCTC’s third annual Voices International Theatre Festival, BOGUMER tells the story of Anatoly Lunacharsky, a member of Vladimir Lenin's People's Commissar, who organizes a trial against—and ultimately the execution of—God. Set in 1918 Moscow, audiences meet seven protagonists who express a society forever changed by the loss of its leader.

“Vero Cendoya’s BOGUMER illustrates the power of giving voice to the people,” says Olga Levina, JCTC's co-founder and executive producer. “This act of democracy and rebellion reinforces a greater message: to be a true democracy, one must allow freedom of art and a place for representation.”

BOGUMER  first premiered in April 2021 at the Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona, Spain, and has been nominated for multiple awards, including Max Awards for best musical composition, best choreography, and best dance show. It is presented through Cendoya’s dance-theatre company, Cia. Vero Cendoya, and in collaboration with the Institut Ramon Llul.

This event is made possible by numerous supporters, including the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development, Hudson County, Hudson County Executive Thomas DeGise, the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders; the City of Jersey City, the Jersey City Municipal Council, and the Office of Cultural Affairs. Festival sponsors include PNC Bank, Mastercard, LeFrak, Barcade, and Shuster Group.
