Latins on Ice is a hilarious show written, produced, and performed by Latin artists on the literal ICE of Lake Nokomis. Premiering Saturday, January 29, Latins on Ice is set out to create heat – including ice skating attempts and shared stories surrounded by what the five local Latin performers call a "feigned natural habitat.”
Writer Sabrín Diehl (he/they) hails from Miami, leading to a huge culture shock in the move to freezing Minneapolis, MN. Not only did he feel the coldness of the weather, but the chill that often comes with the famous Minnesota Nice demeanor. He was surrounded by English, no longer Spanish, and experienced America in all its whiteness for the first time.
Working together with fellow Latinx artists and performers Xochi, Toni, Isabella, and Alex, Sabrín gathered to create a show that would keep theater warm and alive, especially during the current pandemic. Theaters are closed and shows are postponed, but Latins on Ice manages to perform outside, giving a voice and a story to the Latinx community.
This is a show everyone should see, but is truly dedicated to the Latinx people. For every member of this community who has felt underrepresented, unwelcome, left out, or homesick for a warmer place, Latins On Ice is a show to, in Sabrín’s words: “bring nuestras communidades together to be real and funny about our common challenges.”
With a setting made of colorful beach towels, blow-up palm trees, sombreros, and beach balls on top of frozen Lake Nokomis, the Latin artists share their Minnesota experiences. With stories ranging from comedic to tragic to explosive, enjoy the show as a celebration of the passion, creativity, and genius of Latin people.
Written and Performed by Sabrín Diehl, Xochi de la Luna, Antonio Rios-Luna, Isabella Dunsieth, and Alex Barreto Hathaway
Conceived by Sabrín Diehl
Directed by John Gebretatose
Music by Ruben Gomez
Latins on Ice is supported by local organizations Teatro del Pueblo, La Doña Cerveceria, US Pond Hockey, and The Great Northern.
