"We do not call this gathering a festival, but an "Encuentro," because it is an encounter of thoughts and ideas, of creativity and discussion." -- José Luis Valenzuela

On the second weekend of this groundbreaking festival, the LTC gathered in Los Angeles for the 2017 LTC International Convening to attend the performances at the festival, engage in discussions about art-making and aesthetics, and meet Latinx and Latin American practitioners and scholars from across the hemisphere. The productions were in English and Spanish, and the entire convening was bilingual—a first for the LTC. The goal of the convening was to create a space where theatremakers could talk about the work at the festival in either English or Spanish while being understood and celebrated by theatremakers in the other language.
