A review of the peculiar characteristics that define each generation of our Latin American society. From our fathers and grandfathers to Millennials and today's children.
In Luzia, a waking dream transports audiences to an imaginary Mexico. They experience a wondrous world that invites them, enveloped in light and nurtured by rain, to explore their senses. Inspired by the cultural richness of Mexico, Cirque du Soleil's Luzia features original music by Canadian composer Simon Carpentier. The show's album takes Carpentier's music (written for a live acoustic setting) and passes it through the filter of the electro-pop of Nortec Collective's Bostich + Fussible with an infusion of brassy Mexican and Latin American sounds.
This spring's LookOut Series features Chicago-based, Latinx artists. Its electrifying mix of shows, curated by Sandra Delgado and Sandra Marquez, includes the following:
Sound + Fury: A Night of Electronic Storytelling: a night of lyrics and vocals weaved through electronically driven Latin, house, and hip-hop music.
Saints and Sinners: a storytelling night of personal stories that defy being put neatly into a box.
An Evening With Carlos Flores and Julio Bishop: a one-night-only event exploring the rich history of Puerto Rican culture in Chicago.
An Evening of Sizzling Mambo With Saladeen Alamin
La Havana Madrid: a world-premiere play about a long-gone Chicago nightclub that drew throngs of newly arrived Latinos to the city's north side.
Amazing and amusing, Marc's theatrical creations have been hailed as "Not to be missed!" by ABC News and "A surefire 'you-gotta-see-this-show' show!" by Variety. Both fascinating and psychological, his performances have been enjoyed by millions around the world from Broadway and the West End to the Sydney Opera House and Singapore, earning him the name "The King of the Mind-Readers" by Time Out.
Marc's mystifying techniques and quick wit "break the lock" on the minds of randomly selected audience members. He has had the pleasure of outwitting such well-known celebrities as Sting, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Donald Trump, Arthur Miller, Paul Newman, Prince Andrew, Judi Dench, Ronald Reagan!
What happens when the tiny inhabitants of a secluded island seek to join the developed world and form a basketball team? When one of their players, a down-at-heel American journeyman named Michael Jordan (not the Michael Jordan), won't shoot or pass the ball, he ensures a losing season for his vertically-challenged team. Playing out entirely in the Q&A format of postgame conferences, Michael Jordan in Lilliput combines the fantastical with the mundane and the expansive with the irrelevant.
Entering Mrs. Phu's means crossing a gauntlet of steadfast Reaganites and pro-lifers. Just on the other side of the trenches lies a world where a waiter wrangles eccentric customers, a hippie lady floats aimlessly, and three very different women gather to receive abortions under the constraints of stringent federal mandates.
Note: This show is recommended for mature audiences.
Blending together the artistry of dancers, contortionists, high-wire artists, and French cirque nouveau superstar James Thierrée's extraordinary physical prowess, this spectacle premiered at the Edinburgh International Festival.
