The Political Theatre Festival



Teatro del Pueblo and Pangea World Theater present The Political Theatre Festival. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the PTF and will feature two solo works. Aliens, Immigrants, & Other Evildoers is a sci-fi Latino noir and multimedia solo by award-winning performance artist José Torres-Tama, and it explores the rise in hate crimes against Latinos and the demonization of immigrants across the U.S. Cultivating a sci-fi aesthetic that satirizes the status of the immigrant as an ALIEN, Torres-Tama shape-shifts numerous Latino "extraterrestrials" who bilingually challenge the flaws of a country built by immigrants that vilifies the same people whose labor it exploits. Check out Torres-Tama's website for more information about the show. Performances: February 17 - 19, 2011 Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00pm ¡Gaytino! is Dan Guerrero's autobiographical, one-man show about his Chicano and gay identities. Guerrero uses music and monologue to explore his relationship with his father, Chicano musician Eduardo "Lalo" Guerrero; his career as a Broadway talent agent; and his return to his Chicano roots. Performances: February 24 - 27, 2011 Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00pm; Sunday at 2:00pm
