UCC’s World Languages Department welcomes the Milagro Theatre’s bilingual production of Cuéntame Coyote on Feb. 25.
The play, which is supported through a cultural grant from the Associated Students of UCC, is free and open to everyone. The play starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, in Centerstage Theatre, located inside the Whipple Fine Arts Center on UCC's main campus.
Written and directed by Dañel Malán, Cuéntame Coyote tells the story of two cousins abandoned in the desert and their struggle for survival. The play was developed after an intensive research trip to the Tohono O’odham reservation in Arizona. Sacred stories combined with migrant tales of the dangers of dehydration, snakebite, and scorpions in the desolate 100-degree desert heat fuel the storyline of this new Milagro work.
The Milagro Theatre provides extraordinary Latino theatre, culture, and arts education experiences for the enrichment of all communities. Since its founding in 1985, Milagro has given a primary voice to issues affecting the local and national Latino community, and has introduced a host of new performers to the local arts and education field. Since 1989, the touring program has provided culturally appropriate arts education & engagement programs that further Latino participation in the arts and building appreciation for culture.
