Colectivo El Pozo -Founded in 2009 by Raúl Dorantes, Marcopolo Soto, Ignacio Guevara, Febronio Zatarain & other Latin American writers now residing in Chicago. Colectivo El Pozo has since served as one of the primary Spanish-language theatre collectives dedicated to creating original work that explores the diverse realities of Pan-Latina/o immigrants in the city of Chicago. Since its inception, Colectivo El Pozo has attempted to expand theatrical opportunities for Chicago artists that are mutually interested in developing Spanish-language theatre works and also interested in the range of themes within the broader scope of Immigration. The ensemble ranges from seasoned to emerging actors and participants. We are aware of this limitation. Regardless, we feel it necessary to tackle this impactful artistic genre, that is Theatre, and create a space where the immigrant voice and narrative is regularly staged in Chicago. Colectivo El Pozo currently tours colleges/universities, festivals and venues across the city and is preparing to tour nationally. In addition to producing at least 2 new works per season, Colectivo El Pozo stages dramatized readings throughout the year.
