2019 Teatro En Fuga: A Festival of New Works Productions:
Apu: Mountain God
Written and Directed by Jeffrey Colangelo
Based on a Peruvian myth, Apu: Mountain God tells the story of a lonely mountain giant who falls in love with a paper town and in the process, accidentally destroys it. This fairy tale-come-to-life, will take audiences members through the journey of coming together to rebuild the town while reflecting on what it means to embrace otherness. Cara Mía Theatre, in association with Prism Movement Theater, presents this fantastical journey of acceptance that defies all constructs of love. Apu: Mountain God features an original musical score by Peruvian musician and composer, Fabricio CF.
URSULA o dejarse ir en el viento
(URSULA or letting yourself go with the wind)
Written, Directed and Performed by Frida Espinosa-Müller
URSULA o dejarse ir en el viento (URSULA or letting yourself go with the wind) tells the journey of Nadia, a 7-year-old separated from her mother after seeking asylum at the US-Mexico border. As Nadia waits for her mother’s asylum to be processed, she remembers the difficulties she is leaving behind in Honduras and the new reality she is facing. Live, original music from Armando Monsivais will take audiences into Nadia’s mind as she tries to make sense of all that is happening around her. This bilingual production will offer subtitles for audience members.
Written and Directed by David Lozano
Loosely based on Cesar Chavez’s early years as an organizer, El Malcriado puts a microscope to the life of the civil rights legend.
