Teatro Visión is creating a new Día de los Muertos play (not yet titled) and we want you to be a part of it. The new work will premiere in October 2018.
Mark your calendars for these upcoming new work events and activities:
Collective Songwriting Workshops
Our composer, Russell Rodríguez, will guide a series of Collective Songwriting Workshops: an interactive engagement of thought, discussion, and music making. He will facilitate this workshop along with another talented Bay Area musician/composer, Chris Gonzalez Clarke. All participants will be credited in the program of the show’s planned premiere in October 2018.
All are welcome, no musical experience necessary, just come with the intention to participate and to create. Please arrive on time and plan to stay for the duration of the workshop.
*This is a free event open to the public.*
If you can't make it to the workshop, you can watch the livestream on our Facebook page.
First draft reading
Be the very first to experience our new play as our actors read a first draft of the script. Stick around afterwards to give us your feedback!
Join us for a one-night-only staged reading of the next draft of our new work. The script will still be in progress, we won’t have elaborate sets, costumes, or lighting, but our actors will be up on their feet and moving around the stage. Your response to this performance will help our artists revise their work.
World premiere production
In October 2018, the new work will have its world premiere as Teatro Visión’s 6th annual Día de los Muertos show!
