MACLA/Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana

Partner: Mark Valdez


To support DJ LATINIDAD'S DANCE PARTY, conceived and directed by Mark Valdez, a performance piece that explores Latino identity (Latinidad) in contemporary U.S. culture and features commissioned works by local and national writers. The play fights media depictions of Latino/as stereotypes and instead shares stories of love, friendship, and family—stories that go unnoticed. The one-week residency will include three fully staged performances at MACLA’s 100-seat Castellano Playhouse from February 17-19, 2017. Residency activities will also involve outreach activities aimed at-risk youth in our neighborhood.
