San Antonio's New TEATRO AUDAZ Inaugurates Activity with Three Latino Plays, September 22-24, 2016
NEW THEATRE COMPANY TO HIGHLIGHT LATINX CULTURE
“Teatro Audaz San Antonio” founded to address underserved populations and revitalize artistic and economic scene
Teatro Audaz San Antonio is a new artistic, theatrical initiative created by San Antonio academics, professionals, and performers. The company, with Executive Director Alison Vasquez, MFA, Artistic Director Laura T. Garza, MFA, and co-founder Paula Rodriguez, MFA was created to explore the varied experiences and cultures of Latinxs, immigrants, women, and LGBT individuals through accessible teatro. The company’s top goal is to produce and showcase the creative talents of Latinx and Tejano artists in San Antonio. To accomplish this mission, the company will hold a variety of performances, readings and trainings throughout San Antonio.
The company is launching on September 22nd 2016, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, with three staged readings and a launch party fundraiser. Information on the events is as follows:
Nuestra Voces: Our Voices
Thursday, September 22nd at 7:00 pm – Panza Monologues by Virginia Grise & Irma Mayorga, directed by Alison Vasquez at San Antonio College in McCreless Theatre (San Antonio, TX.)
Friday, September 23rd at 7:00 pm – Requiem of the Oppressed by Maximo Anguiano, directed by Jim Mammarella at San Antonio College in McCreless Theatre -- the evening will include panel discussion on the status of prisons in America immediately following the performance

Teatro Audaz San Antonio also helps to provide opportunities for local talent, to participate in productions. The city of San Antonio and surrounding areas contain a considerable amount of talented artists; Teatro Audaz will assist the city of San Antonio in being a high production, artistic scene that drives the national narrative of Latinx culture.
To kick-off the initiative, Teatro Audaz is launching a fundraiser to raise money to sustain the company. The crowdsourcing will take place on the Indiegogo platform and can be found here.
