Pregones/PRTT is proud to partner with Harlem 9 to present the fourth edition of 48 Hours in… El Bronx in new digital format on February 18-22, 2021.
A phenomenal roster of 30 Latinx theater artists gathered for an intensive theater-making marathon, creating six new plays inspired by iconic images from photographers David González, Joe Conzo, Angel Franco, Ricky Flores, Francisco Molina Reyes II, and Edwin Pagán, all members of the acclaimed South Bronx photography collective Seis del Sur.

Backstory: In March 2020, when our world began shutting down due to the coronavirus, Harlem9 and Pregones/PRTT faced the difficult decision of postponing our jointly produced playmaking marathon scheduled for April. Nearly a year later, the collaboration is back on its feet in new digital format! Once again we celebrate The Bronx by digging into its histories, finding inspiration in the photographs that document them, and calling on the muses of live theater! Six new 10-minute plays were written over an immersive period of 48 hours, then rehearsed and recorded during an additional 2-day stretch. The process culminates in a 96-hour streaming event for all audiences, running from Thursday, February 18, through Monday, February 22, 2021.
Enjoy all plays at your leisure with your online pass, valid anytime Thursday-Sunday!
