Theatre for Wed., Aug. 15
  • Arts



    This is a four-day festival of new and avant-garde performance from the Vortex and Avant Theatre Project, designed to explore the many permutations and intersections of Latinx identity in the 21st century and beyond, featuring work from playwrights, solo performers, and improv troupes exploring and critiquing the ways that Latinidad engages with questions of race, ethnicity, color, gender, sexuality, religion, class, and citizenship. Jesus I. Valles’ one-man show (Un)Documents is part of this. The Latinauts' improvised sci-fi telenovelas are another. Also, Sin Verguenza from the reigning Queen of Texas Burlesque, Chola Magnolia; readings of plays by Krysta Gonzales and Briandaniel Oglesby; and a workshop of Glass Half Full’s collaboration with Jesus I. Valles and Gricelda Silva, which will use the myth of El Cucuy to speak about ICE and the Border Patrol. ¡Oralé!
    Wed.-Sat., Aug. 15-18; see website for times. $15-50.
