Teatro Luna Crosses Boundaries

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsCROSSED, Teatro Luna’s eighth original play devised in an ensemble setting, seeks to explode stereotype and poetically navigate what it means to be an immigrant in the United States in an era some have ironically dubbed “post-racial.” Set in a series of unknown terminals, join seven diverse performers as they share both their own autobiographical stories, as well as accounts collected from interviews, news reports, and the Lunáticas own experiences while traveling South in spring 2011–ranging from topics like: one Latina’s reaction to Congresswoman Gifford’s shooting, to the painful mystery of a cousin who went missing on the same day as 400 others in Mexico, to burlesque in an Airport security checkpoint set to the tune of La Cucaracha. CROSSED calls upon Teatro Luna’s most notable hallmark: using wit, humor and quirky poignancy to tackle the taboo, the uncomfortable, and some beautiful and ugly truths about living in America as an immigrant today. CROSSED is presented by Teatro Luna at the Viaduct Theatre, 3111 N. Western Ave, Chicago IL 60618. For ticket and performance dates, call 773-819-5862.
