Encore Broadcast: August 14th on BronxNet

Digital Sneak Peek at Works In Progress by Latinx Artists

FREE ONLINE on MONDAYS @ 7:30 PM — July 6-August 3, 2020

Our 2020-21 Season rolls out with new online content every Monday night! 

REMOJO, the company’s recurring sneak peek at works in progress goes digital, giving audiences a chance to get up close and personal with Latinx theater, music, dance, and film/media artists. Events will broadcast for free on website, Zoom, and social media platforms.

“It took us but two minutes to realize that the lockdown and added introspection could only heighten our creative senses!” says Rosalba Rolón, Artistic Director.

“The pandemic brought us indoors with a plea to ‘Stay Home, Save Lives,’ and that didn’t dampen our imaginations,” she explains. “Seizing the digital window to unlock intimate dimensions of work development and other ‘unseen’ aspects of the artists’ process was a huge opportunity, and that’s what Remojo 2020 offers.”

“This year’s Remojo is different because the world is different,” adds Jorge B. Merced, Associate Artistic Director. “It’s Re-Mojo as in get our mojo back, fight COVID, stand up for black lives!”

“REMOJO means ‘soaking’ — what you do to beans to get them ready for stew, the soak and simmer until the flavors pop! Our 2020 digital series,” he concludes, “is on a steady boil.”

Featuring more than 30 Latinx and international artists, each episode of Remojo 2020 is its own mix of performance and film in snappy 30-minute format. All are hosted by Rosal Colón, Pregones/PRTT ensemble member known for her roles in Orange Is the New Black (2013), The Dead Don’t Die (2019) and Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018).
