ProyectoTEATRO tiene el placer de presentar al escritor y actor Josh Inocnencio en la premisa Tejana de su trabajo mas reciente, Ojos Violetas (Purple Eyes), una obra autobiográfica con trazos ancestrales que explora las intersecciones de la  homosexualidad y la identidad Chicana, al igual que el machismo, dentro del núcleo familiar Mexicano. Con sus influencias religiosas, la cultura Latina tiende a evadir las conversaciones sobre las orientaciones sexuales y descaradamente, a pesar del dolor que causa, las ignora por completo. Ojos Violetas cuestiona situaciones y conversaciones que sabemos que existen, pero que preferimos esconder aún cuando se vive en una generación donde la definición de genero, familia, e individualidad están cambiando drásticamente.  

ProyectoTEATRO, Austins leading Spanish-language Performing Arts Company and current resident at the ESB Mexican-American Cultural Center, is proud to present Josh Inocéncio in the Texas premiere of Ojos Violetas (Purple Eyes). This ancestral autobiography performance explores the intersections of queerness and Chicano/a identity as well as machismo in Mexican families. Latino culture, with its strong religious influences, tends to stray away from conversations about sexual orientation and in fact ignores the issue all together. In a time when the definition of gender, family, and individuality are shifting, Purple Eyes bravely explores situations and conversations we know exist, but prefer not to challenge.  


SOBRE OJOS VIOLETAS
Ojos Violetas es una obra autobiográfica con trazos ancestrales, escrita y actuada por Josh Inocencio, la cual explora su crecimiento como un Chicano gay en el closet navegando una cultural machista  en Houston, TX. Josh interpreta las cuatro generaciones de patriarcados de la familia Inocencio, desde su tatarabuelo Jesús plantando fresas en Michoacán y su abuelo José en la guerra Europea contra los Nazi, hasta su papá Joel como travesti y agente secreto en los antros gay de Montrose para finalziar con si mismo, el, aceptando su sexualidad.

ABOUT OJOS VIOLETAS
Purple Eyes is an ancestral autobiographical performance piece written and performed by Josh Inocéncio, which explores his upbringing as a closeted gay Chicano amid a machismo cultural heritage in Houston, TX.  Josh portrays four generations of Inocéncio men, from his great-grandpa Jésus planting strawberries in Michoacán to his grandpa José fighting Nazis in Europe, from his dad Joel going undercover in drag at gay nightclubs in Montrose, and finally, to himself embracing his sexuality.
