Celebrate, eSe! combines theatre and celebration in honor of eSe Teatro's 2-year anniversary. Performances will include a theatrical Mission Statement interpretation, sneak-peek readings of 2012 Season productions including the Glickman Award-winning play Oedipus el Rey by Luis Alfaro (December 2012) and works-in-progress by eSe members, as well as a rare zapateo performance by master dancer and choreographer Lucho Sandoval (Peru).
The staged performances will be followed by a reception and a moderated talk-back session allowing for a discussion between theatre patrons and eSe members to explore future programming and community-building efforts. This is a great opportunity to learn more about eSe Teatro and see what's in store for the rest of the year. Celebrate, eSe! is presented in part by The Central Heating Lab at ACT.
