Mesa Theatre Presents: Lucha y libertad -- Struggle and liberty

 

Three one act plays and poetry written and performed in Spanish by advanced language students of San Diego Mesa College will be showcased on one night only on Friday, December 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the Apolliad Theatre on the Mesa College campus in Kearny Mesa.

Lucha y libertad (Struggle and liberty) explores politics and culture in contemporary Latin American society. Three short plays and a poetry slam performance examine the struggles, hopes, and fantasies of the Latin American experience. The plays feature a story about immigration, another on kidnapping, and a contemporary retelling of the classic “Three Little Pigs” fairytale.

This annual fall student performance premiered in 2009. It is unique in that it is a  cross-curricular theatrical production created by and featuring the students of Mesa College drama, Spanish and honors classes. The plays are written by the student playwrights, produced by student theatrical designers. Guidance is provided by Spanish Professor Dora Schoenbrun-Fernandez and Drama Professor John Polak, and with the cooperation and help from the Mesa College Dramatic Arts Department.

The performance is for one night only, Friday, December 10, 2010; 7:30 at the Apolliad Theatre at San Diego Mesa College, 7250 Mesa College Drive, San Diego 92111.
