Semana de Sueños
by Jump-Start Performance Company
Jan. 17 - Jan. 26
Jump-Start Performance Co. presents Semana de Sueños, a collection of three stories that focus on border issues, civil rights and migrant stories, written and directed by company member Eraina Porras.
In conjuction with Dreamweek San Antonio, Semana de Sueños opens up the topics about tolerance, diversity and equality.
First, Posoge, an origin border story told through film, Socorro and Oaxaca are two magical desert sisters who were raised by a pueblo tribe. Their hair - when braided - can form water. When the the tribe is faced with drought, the sisters’ Mother Wolf appears and tells them they can create a rio grande, but it will require them to sacrifice their lives. Evil men dishonor their sacrifice by making the great river a border between people.
Presented next is a live performance of The Edge of the Woods. In 1968, students in San Antonio became part of the Chicano civil rights movement when they walked out of their high schools in protest over unfair treatment. The Edge of the Woods follows Diana’s and Richard’s relationship and struggle as students at Edgewood High School.
Lastly will be another live performance of Attorney in Wonderland. Laura Gonzalez, an immigration attorney, is contacted by a man who has been separated from his daughter by Border Patrol. When Laura agrees to search for the girl, she finds herself in Wonderland, where she meets the Talking Door, the Cheshire Coyote and Queen Liberty.
