Event

Maria Ibarra/Nicolas Valdez & NE 2nd Ave
7TH ANNUAL HECHO EN CALIFAS FESTIVAL 2006 presents "Ni de aqui, ni de alla", an evening of poetry, music and theater which looks at the immigrant communities around the U.S.

Maria Ibarra San Antonio based Poet & Nicolas Valdez Oakland based performance artist via San Antonio. Nicolas and Maria's work reflects the dualistic identities created by the communities around the US/Mexico border. Ni de aqui, ni de alla- the push and pull of shifting policies and the resulting economic/social stratification has led to a unique cultural identity that is central to understanding this border experience. Through music, poetry, and story telling, they manage to weave a vivid and personal story that lures audiences from Rancheras to Punk-Rock.

NE 2nd Ave, written and performed by Teo Castellanos. Directed by Michael John Garces. The work conveys, with poignancy and humor, the profoundly rich and textured mix of Miami, in which distinct Cuban, Haitian, Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Jewish, and African American influences share their stories. NE 2nd Avenue brings voice to marginalized urban populations, exploring underlying issues of racism and social injustice, acknowledging the differences among us and ultimately discovering the common threads that bind us together.

$10 adv. / $12 dr.
