Teatro del Pueblo is a place where everybody is welcome.
We believe that Theatre must be inclusive and equitable. We are community based.
Our productions reflect our diverse audience and artists, and continues to evolve taking performing arts beyond the stage.
Teatro del Pueblo hosted the national ArtsEquity 2016 Facilitator Training
A History of Collaborations
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.
Among our partners and collaborators in many projects are:
East Side Arts Council
El Centro Tyrone Guzmán
Casa de Esperanza
West Side Theatre Project
Saint John’s University
University of Minnesota
The Iberoamerican Studies Series
Collaboration with Pangea World Theater
Teatro del Pueblo and Pangea World Theater collaborated for the first time in 2010 to produce the ninth annual Political Theatre Festival and The House of Bernarda Alba. Their experiences were so successful that the two theaters have since begun a long-term journey of collaboration and sharing of resources.
Since then the have continued to co-produce of the annual Political Theatre Festivals, presentations and productions Luis Alfaro’s Oedipus El Rey and Sandra Cisneros’ House On Mango Street, and most recently Nilo Cruz’s Lorca in a Green Dress. Our combined experience has had a powerful impact on both organizations and our ways of working. As each organization maintains its individual identity, our Boards have taken on the task of defining this joint effort. In a recent joint staff and board retreat, our boards created the following vision for the collaboration – Sharing of knowledge, resources and creative energies to advance both organizations artistically and financially. In doing so, we hope to create an inspirational model for equitable collaborations among artistic / nonprofit organizations. In working together to create dynamic, thoughtful theater productions and other events, we hope to engage and foster civic engagement and dialogue within diverse communities to help address common concerns.
“In this particular time it is imperative that like-minded organizations find new ways to partner to maximize the impact of our work in our community and the field of American Theater as a whole,” says Pangea’s Executive and Literary Director, Meena Natarajan. Alberto Justiniano of Teatro del Pueblo agrees: “This partnership will create powerful theater while renewing our individual artistic practices and institutions.”
