Jotos del Barrio Theater Production
The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is proud to announce the June 2014 production of Jesus Alonzo's critically acclaimed play Jotos del Barrio. Directed by Maria A. Ibarra, Jotos del Barrio returns to San Antonio after a twelve year absence to celebrate the publishing of Alonzo's original play by Kórima Press.
Jotos del Barrio was originally presented by the Esperanza as a staged reading in 1995. In 2002, the play established attendance records for the Jump-Start Performance Company, capturing the hearts of San Antonio audiences throughout a successful run. Presented as a collection of poems, monologues and vignettes, Jotos del Barrio explores the lives of young Latino, Chicano, Tejano, Mexicano, and Mexican-American gay men as they search for a voice, a sense of place, and above all, respect as human beings.
Through dance, music and performance, S.A. playwright Jesus Alonzo explores the lives of characters confronted by racism, homophobia and the complexities of Queer life.
