Pregones Theater & The Puerto Rican Traveling Theater in collaboration with Lincoln Center Out of Doors’ LA CASITA, present

2016 SUMMER BLOCK PARTY with LA CASITA!

ABOUT

One of our most popular free outdoor events, this dynamic celebration provides a fun summer afternoon of performances, a live preview of Pregones/PRTT’s upcoming season and much more!

12 noon – Come early to grab a good seat, see the artisan tables, get your face painted, meet amazing folks and enjoy the cool Bronx summer breeze.

1:30pm – The performances begin indoors at Pregones’ Bronx venue with a live preview of the upcoming season.

2:30pm – We then move back outdoors to celebrate summer and arts with La Casita. An impressive lineup of artist-activists convene to explore the far-reaching social, political, and expressive powers of oral tradition. Wordsmiths share the stage with musicians to uncover how poetry, song, and storytelling can unleash personal truths, construct identity, and fundamentally alter historic narratives.
