May 5-8, 2021 | May 12-15, 2021
Pregones/PRTT presents interactive virtual residencies by two powerhouse Latinx theater companies in May:
SU TEATRO on May 5-8, 2021
SU TEATRO from Denver, Colorado, is the third eldest Chicano theater in the United States — only Teatro Campesino and Teatro de la Esperanza precede it. The group has established a national reputation for homegrown productions that continue to speak to the living history and experience of Chicanos and all Americans. For this virtual residency, the streaming NY premiere of Artistic Director and prolific playwright Tony García’s INTERVIEW WITH A MEXICAN —adapted from Gustavo Arellano’s nationally syndicated advice column ¡Ask a Mexican!— gives way to candid conversations about the significance of Cinco de Mayo, people’s movements for social justice, and how live theater will save our country from itself! This artist residency will be conducted primarily in English.
AGUA, SOL Y SERENO on May 12-15, 2021
AGUA, SOL Y SERENO from Santurce, Puerto Rico, is a dynamic and multigenerational 11-member theater collective recognized for its deep social and human commitment. Founded by Pedro Adorno and Cathy Vigo in 1993, the group is known for developing a dynamic brand of popular and experimental performance featuring colorful and iconic costumes, set pieces, and “cabezudos” or giant papier maché heads. For this virtual residency, a special screening of original production ANTULIO PARRILLA: COOPERATIVISTA EN GRACIA is matched with a behind-the-scenes tour of the company’s workshop, a teaser from the forthcoming documentary about ASYS, and talk with company members! This artist residency will be conducted primarily in Spanish.
All Events Free on Zoom and Starting 7:30pm ET
