The Diversity, Equality and Psychology clubs at Arapahoe Community College (ACC) are pleased to present the play Duende de Lorca at 1 p.m. March 30 in the College’s Waring Theatre.
Duede de Lorca, a bilingual play written by Teatro Milagro, is the story of Federico García Lorca, who is celebrated the world over for his poetry, music and plays. Yet at the age of 27, he was still a struggling artist living with his parents, staging puppet plays that were laughed off the stage by the critics.
His need for freedom fueled his desire to succeed. In search of duende, his travels through New York and Cuba became a quest for cultural integration and gender acceptance.
Following the play, audience members will have an opportunity to meet the actors and participate in an open discussion on culture and gender acceptance.
The 2011 tour of Duende de Lorca is made possible in part by grant support from the Oregon Arts Commission, Juan Young Trust, Ford Family Foundation and the Carpenter Foundation.
Students and community members are invited to attend this free performance. ACC’s Waring Theatre is located at 5900 S. Santa Fe Drive in Littleton. For more information on the play, call Pre-enrollment Services Specialist Andrew Garcia at 303.797.5657.
