Teatro Vivo in collaboration with the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center and ScriptWorks presents a groundbreaking theater event for Texas and the Southwest, bringing together playwrights and audience members in rich conversation about three new workshop productions, each running just one night. The productions invite insight into the Latino aesthetic and experience and celebrate the power of the human experience.
These workshop-style presentations are lively readings with props and movement on stage, riding the fence between staged reading and full-out production. After each workshop, the playwright and audience will participate in moderated talk back sessions so attendees can provide feedback to the playwrights. Though the productions have Latino roots, they explore cross-cultural age-old themes and modern dilemmas that will surprise, challenge, engage and push the dramatic envelope for audience members accustomed to one-way conversations at the theater.
