2018 LTC Carnaval of New Latinx Work

The Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) invites artists, decision makers, and scholars to the 2018 LTC Carnaval of New Latinx Work, July 19-21, 2018, produced in association with Teatro Vista and the Alliance of Latinx Theatre Artists  of Chicago (ALTA), and hosted by The Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago, IL. 

Carnaval 2018 will build upon the success of the 2015 LTC Carnaval of New Latina/o Work by featuring readings of six new plays. Each featured  play—selected from a nationwide call—will receive development with a Latinx creative team including a director, dramaturg, actors, and designers. Carnaval participants will also have the chance to visit Chicago theatres for workshops, tours, and sessions with the aim of introducing national participants to the rich variety of Latinx companies and artists working in the city. At this time, registration for Carnaval is closed. Please email LTC Producer Abigail Vega with any questions.
