ABOUT NOCHE BOHEMIA / BOHEMIAN NIGHTS SERIES:
This unique new series is dedicated to featuring the diverse range of Latina Talent in Chicago. At these Noche Bohemia events you will see all kinds of talent from the various artistic disciplines ranging from: music, dance, story-telling, burlesque, and poetry to clowning and acrobats---and everything in between. This is the place where Latina artists that we either: a) haven't been able to work with formally in our productions or education programs but believe the work they are doing is groundbreaking/important/fun/needs support and/or b) artists who are Luna Friends/Company Members, whom we have either worked with before or have long supported our work and strongly believe that their talents need to be shared with our audiences. The Noche Bohemia series is a safe space where these artists can both develop and perform their work/art in front of a live audience, and also receive feedback in a non-formal way.
