To Be or Not To Be, A Shakespearean Experience
R.Evolución Latina presents a Shakespearean Experience devised under the direction of Luis Salgado in collaboration with Ian Hersey, from the Public Theater and Leon Insgulsrud, from SITI Company.
The piece explores the question of what it means to be an immigrant in the US facing the challenge of the English language, finding their place in society and belonging. The spirit of Raul Julia -one of the first latinos to thrive at the classical Shakespearean work at the Public Theater in NYC- will guide the characters into the light and self-acceptance they need to open the doors of possibilities and together break the walls that hinder their potential in our society today.
R.Evolución Latina is beyond thrilled to at last use the works of Shakespeare in a way that can celebrate community as a whole. R.Evolución Latina partners with Pregones/PRTT Raul Julia Training unit, furthering the legacy of Myriam Colón.
