Su Teatro’s Ask a Mexican About Cinco de Mayo will make its New York premiere through May 8, along with a screening of Interview With a Mexican and a dialogue with company artists. Su Teatro, based in Denver, is the nation’s third oldest Chicano theatre, and has established a reputation for homegrown productions that speak to the history and experience of Chicanos.
From May 12-15, the Puerto Rico-based company Agua, Sol y Sereno (ASYS) will screen the original production Antulio Parrilla: Cooperativista en Gracia. ASYS, which is known for its experimental performances with cabezudos, or giant papier-mâché heads, will also offer a tour of their workshop and an artist talkback. ASYS is a group of multifaceted artists united by a deep social and human commitment to do theatre.
