The purpose of this event is to criss‐cross boundaries, to share work, to dialogue, to strategize; and in so doing connect islands and diasporas by recognizing both our similarities and differences. We seek to explore the current landscape of practices, documentation, and dissemination of popular and resistance theater; recognize specificities of social, cultural, geographical and political context; identify future opportunities for exchange and learning; and promote the notion of a broader transnational Caribbean.
Traditional popular culture and the knowledge it affords has made us groups that create to resist erasure in the circles of hegemonic power. This is about making ourselves stronger and visible, joining our voices to be heard as we plan together a course of action in this battle against the forces that attempt to suppress our historic memory, our culture. Open Channels 2021: Caribbean Theater Workshop is the closing event in Macubá Theater Group’s annual Popular Theater Workshop: Directions in Caribbean Theater as part of the Festival del Caribe: Fiesta de Fuego 2021 in Santiago de Cuba.

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies and The Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute and The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South of Tulane University (New Orleans, LA), and Estudio Teatral Macubá present Open Channels, a live learning encounter for popular theatre artists, scholars, students, teachers, and audiences of Caribbean culture. The four-hour online annual event is held mainly in Spanish and English (interpretation provided), with other Caribbean languages present, Thursday 8 July 2021 at 10 a.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4) / 9 a.m. CDT (New Orleans, UTC -5) / 7 a.m. PDT (Los Angeles, UTC -7) livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv.
