Latino Theatre in Chicago

Latino Theatre in Chicago is not new. Many have come before us and many more will come after. Each new group that comes around thinks that they have reinvented the wheel, they call their enterprises historic events that have never happened before. It has happened before.

Credit goes to the long standing, stubborn organizations that have survived in spite of the "cultural" disparity in Latinos in Chicago. (Aguijon Theater Company and Grupo Vista.)

Some will try to erase history by saying that their even is the first; knowing that it is not. Some will take credit for the work of others. We were here, we are here.

Many tools one vision

Photography, sculpture, printmaking, poetry, stage design, acting, directing, painting, drawing, performing arts. All of these are some of the tools I have chosen to express myself. I have trained and studied each of the art forms for years to be able to use them without fear. I move from one form to the other, many times combining them in multimedia works of art. My work has been performed and exhibited in many venues. In art the only limitation should be that set by the artist at the moment of creation, then each work becomes unique and the expression of that instant in time when the creative process stops time. I love the stage, the possibility of three dimensional expression with words, ethos, light, sound, pathos, logos the knowledge of the tools, the movement of actors as clay. I love clay and metal, paper and ink, a simple #2 pencil, a poem.
