This is Our Voice, This is Our Culture: Latinx Theater in the USA.
Doors Open: 4pm
Show: 4:30pm — 5:30pm
A one hour show featuring scenes from Latino theatre. Performed by Fresno State students. Directed by Gina Sandi-Diaz
The Department of Theatre at Fresno State is currently offering a course on Latino Theatre. During the semester, students have read, analyzed and performed plays that tackle themes significant to the Latino community in the U.S.
As a culmination to the study, the class has organized a one hour performance based on scenes studied in class. Two narrators will take the audience on a journey, visiting Latino characters trapped in different time periods and dealing with different conflicts related to race, gender, sexuality and a sense of belonging.
The plays featured in the show include Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz, Just Like Us by Karen Zacarias and Lydia by Octavio Solis.
Please join us to celebrate Latino culture, heritage and performing arts, and help support Fresno State students.
Duration: 1 hour.
