Teatro del Pueblo promotes Latino culture through the creation and presentation of performing arts. Teatro develops and supports Latino artists, provides educational opportunities for all to experience Latino culture, and promotes cross-cultural dialogue.
Teatro del Pueblo’s artistic Vision is informed by our desire to create a fusion of cross-cultural artistic expressions, understanding the extent to which other cultures intersect with Latin American, Latino, Chicano, and Meso American culture and histories.
Because of our dedication to a fusion of diverse cultural aesthetics, conventional mediums of expression cannot confine us. We give our artists and collaborates the freedom to redefine original theatrical forms and artistic expectations, creating fascinating fusions out of which emerge new cultural aesthetics. Our productions and projects over the years maintain examples of the artistic visions and cultural aesthetics that define our work.
We uniquely and actively seek out collaborative relationships with other institutions and individuals that are committed to the same ideology of cultural fusion. With this in mind, we aim to broaden our work in order to include pieces that represent the various cultural traditions of the people within our community. This allows us to better represent all the members of the community, while still focusing on our mission to promote and educate others about Latino culture.
