Developing Pia: A Look Inside Workshop Sessions and Dramaturgical Conversations

1/11/2022; 29 minutes

Leading theater artists experiment with cutting-edge multimedia aesthetics to create "Pia's Wonderous Adventures in Tlaxlandia" - a new work deeply connected to the contemporary Chicanx experience. Inspired by the desire to honor the memory of his mother, playwright José Cruz González created the heroic character of a young girl named Pia who deals with challenging topics in a magical world that models empathy for young viewers and causes them to ask important real-life questions… all while our adventurers travel in a low-rider Taco Food Truck!
