Confessions of a Mexpatriate Debuts at Salvage Vanguard Theater New Teatro Vivo production from playwright Raul Garza, directed by Ken Webster Walk a Mile in His Zapatos. Portrays struggle of straddling two homelands Teatro Vivo presents Confessions of a Mexpatriate, an original one-man performance. Mexpatriate depicts the misadventures of a man who embarks on a journey across Mexico in search of his life's meaning, and in a discovery of what it truly means to be Mexican-American.
Mexpatriate takes the audience on the adventure of one heavily-American-media-saturated man, embarking on a passage across Mexico, in which he comes to embrace the beauty of the culture and what Mexico means to Mexican-Americans. A memory and a fantasy, scary and welcoming these are just a few of the aspects of this comedic look at a soul-searching experience. Mexpatriate is portrayed by actor Mical Trejo and is directed by Ken Webster. Both Trejo and Webster are award-winning theater artists.
"We want the audience to view the struggles, discoveries and beauty that come with being Mexican-American in both the U.S. and Mexico," says JoAnn Reyes, executive director of Teatro Vivo. "Confessions of a Mexpatriate offers exactly that."
