  • Director's Diary, Vol. 1

    Every now and again, we'll check in with MACARIO Production Director and longtime Teatro Artistic Associate Rodrigo García for an update on the production. This is the first installment...

    Rodrigo_Garcia_headshot.jpgMACARIO 2014 is in full force. Our traditional orientation rehearsal went really well, with all the cast, production team, designers, and community participants gathered at Hoover Community Center. Teatro Visión Co-Founder and Artistic Director Elisa Marina Alvarado attended the session and gave an inspiring talk about MACARIO as a vehicle to further the conversation about hunger and food justice in our communities.

    The design team also shared the aesthetic concept of this year's production, which is inspired by Expressionism and the work of Mexican muralists such as Siqueiros, Rivera, and Orozco. Both of these elements reflect the style of the award-winning film adaptation of Macario from the early 1960s.

    MACARIO_Gracias.jpgAfter a wildly successful World Premiere adaptation of MACARIO in October 2013, our Board of Directors came together to challenge our community with a $2,000 matching gift to propel us into our 30th year of visionary Chicano theater. We asked you to step up and double your impact by making a matching donation before December 31st.

    Well, as of the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day, nearly 30 donors had contributed more than $2,300 to the cause! This does not include the generosity of the more than 50 friends and patrons who attended our 2nd Annual Holiday Posada on December 20th. Furthermore, we are proud to note that Teatro Visión raised a record $5,400 donations online in 2013.
