Bring teatro to your students at home and in the classroom

Teatro Visión knows that culturally relevant theater is important to your students' education. Therefore, we are pleased to offer exclusive educational access to our recent production of Departera (2018). 
This production is recommended for students in grade 4 and up.
Our suggested price to access the video is $5 per person, which helps us cover the costs of making the video available. However, we know that many schools have little or no budget for arts experiences and it is important to us that money is not a barrier to access. If your school has the budget to pay $5 per person, thank you! If not, please pay what you can or request free access.
Please note that access is limited to educational purposes for K-12 and college students.


World Premiere
by Evelina Fernández with Teatro Visión

Inspired by real stories gathered from our community, Departera is a witty, modern take on Día de los Muertos, full of inspiring music, touching stories, and diverse characters.
Departera is performed bilingually in English and Spanish, with English or Spanish captions.
Run time: 1 hour, 40 minutes
This video of our 2018 world premiere is accessible exclusively for educational use. 

How it works

Clicking on the BOOK NOW links will take you to a form where you can register to access the video of Departera for your students. 
On the registration form, you will indicate whether you are able to pay the recommended price of $5 per person. You may use a credit card to pay online using a link in the registration form or you can choose to pay by check, in which case we will email you an invoice.
After you register, usually within three days, we will send you a unique link. Please share this link ONLY with your students, as it will be good only for a limited number of views. The link will also expire at the end of the semester.
Your unique link will take you to an Overture.Plus site where you and your students can watch the video. You may choose to have your students watch independently on their computer or tablet or, if you wish to watch it together in a Zoom classroom, you can share your screen from Overture.Plus. You can turn on captions on the video by clicking the subtitles icon at the bottom of the video.
If you have questions, or need assistance, please email or call (408) 294-6621 ext. 3.
