Goodman Theatre and the Chicago Latino Theater Alliance (CLATA) will present the Midwest premiere of Pequenos Territorios en Reconstruccion, by Teatro Linea de Sombra of Mexico City, Sept. 21-25 at the Goodman, 170 N. Dearborn St.
The production is produced as part of Destinosthe 5th Chicago International Latino Theater Festival, a five-week festival of Latino theater artists and companies from Chicago, the United States and Latin America in shows, panels and student performances at venues citywide.
Directed by Jorge A. Vargas, the Midwest premiere features Sonya Madrigal, Shanttal Saad, Abril Pinedo and Alicia Laguna in a story about the "City of Women" in Turbaco, Colombia, where 15 years ago, a group of women displaced by armed conflict created the "League of Displaced Women" and built 98 houses with their own hands. After a short stay there, Teatro Linea de Sombra created a documentary fable posing a series of ethical questions on the potential destiny of the settlement, of the women who built it and especially of the children who inhabit it.
The Chicago Latino Theater Alliance (CLATA), a cultural engine helping drive the city's local Latino theater community to a more prominent level, was founded by Myrna Salazar and the National Museum of Mexican Art (NMMA), the International Latino Cultural Center (ILCC) and the Puerto Rican Arts Alliance (PRAA). Many are still stunned by the recent loss of Salazar, who passed away suddenly on Aug. 3.
Tickets ($10-$25, subject to change) are now available at GoodmanTheatre.org/Pequenos or 312-443-3800.
Note: Masks are currently recommended, but not required, while in the theater. Policies may change based on prevailing medical guidance. Learn more about Goodman's current Health and Safety Protocols at GoodmanTheatre.org/Protocols.
