New York City, New York 1-4 December 2016
Immediately following the 2016 US election, the Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) brought together over 175 Latinx theatre artists, scholars, administrators, and advocates from the tristate area and across the United States to engage in a dialogue on the growing Latinx Theatre movement in New York City. See the full list of attendees, the agenda, and the convening program.
“We’re here today to acknowledge the bounty that we’ve created and the joy that we’ve shared, and now it’s also time to move beyond assessment, beyond waiting our turn, and beyond the inequities and limitations placed on us, and sometimes, even by us.” –David Mendizábal
Read reflections on the convening breakout sessions
This four-day gathering included conversations, networking, panels, performances, and parties, and artists gathered from across the city to discuss aesthetics, identity, scholarship, and intergenerational leadership–all through a lens of abundance, rather than scarcity. This convening was co-hosted by The Clemente, Repertorio Español, INTAR Theatre, Teatro SEA, Teatro Círculo, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, the LARK, and the Public Theater.
“Years from now, we will remember these four days together as having fueled some of the great moments of New York Latino theatre yet to be experienced.”—Rosalba Rolón
