Bandara art


In connection with Teatro del Pueblo & Pangea World Theater’s production of Bandara at the Old Arizona Studio May 2 – 18 we are offering special events as part of our Latino Asian Fusion Series. All of these events will be held prior to our 7:30 pm performances from 6 – 7 pm.

The first of these events is a Latino Party on May 3rd featuring salsa and merengue lessons, a disc jockey, and catering from Manny’s Tortas.

The remaining events are a panel discussion about Colonialism in Puerto Rico, India, and the Philippines on May 9 and a spoken word presentation from Palabristas on May 10th.

All events are presented in as part of the production of Bandara. Tickets to Bandara can be purchased by visiting

Bandara follows stories in India, Puerto Rico, and New York. The loneliness of city life, interplays of mixed heritage, experiences of being displaced, medical and scientific discourses, physical and virtual incarnations, and the feeling that time and perception can be non-lineal, come together in the piece. Monkey stories and motifs in different Asian and Latino cultures resonate through a theatrical experience intended to involve the audience meditatively, inviting them to open their senses. Bandara will run May 2 through May 18 at the Old Arizona Studio in Minneapolis.
