Latinx Theatre Commons Celebrates 10 Years of Connection: American Theatre

In mid-March, Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) celebrated its 10th anniversary with an event that included performances, remarks, attendee-participation exercises, and more at Emerson College.

Latinx Theatre Commons is a flagship program of HowlRound, and a national movement of Latinx and allied theatremakers to update the narrative of the American theatre to include Latinx artists and work. The first national convening was at Emerson College in 2013.

Karen Zacarías, a key member and a founder of LTC, spoke about creating LTC by numerous methods, including gathering other makers, attained grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

Zacarías proudly reflected on 10 year of LTC.

I’m most proud of the idea that Latino theatre is not one thing, that we’ve become bigger and more expansive. There are so many plays, books, and ideas that I’m not sure would have happened if we weren’t there to inspire and support each.
