The Real James Bond Was Dominican Presented by Culture Shock

The Real James Bond Was Dominican Presented by Culture Shock

What happens when a James Bond-obsessed Dominican boy in Queens (who won’t go anywhere without his nerf gun), finds out that the real James Bond was Dominican? This is a true story about Porfirio Rubirosa, Ian Fleming’s inspiration for Bond, and a young Dominican actor-to-be – whose discovery of “Rubi” shakes his very foundation.

Set to a live percussion score and immersive projections, 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.

About the creator of the play:
Christopher Rivas is an award winning storyteller, two-time Moth winner, Ariane de Rothschild Social Impact Fellow, actor (Call Me Kat), essayist and social commentator (New York Times, Zocalo, Boston Globe, SwipeLife, Level), film maker, podcast host, and a Ph.D candidate in Expressive Arts for Global Health, and the creator of The Real James Bond… Was Dominican! His mission is to share stories that disrupt what is and create space for what could be.
