Crisalida Week in Review

03 Oct Crisalida Week in Review



”Crisalida
By Moises Huerta

Hello Everyone,

Been so busy behind the scenes that I hadn’t submitted a blog in a minute. So here’s what’s been going on in Crisalida-land. David Gonzalez and I had a very nice visit with Nancy Vance from the Indio Senior Center on Sept 23rd where we brainstormed regarding upcoming events involving Olga Loya, a wonderful performer & workshop facilitator from Fresno (http://olgaloya.com/) who will be in the Coachella Valley November 16-20. There is a great vibe at the ISC every time I have been there. They have a great facility there and lots of potential for collaborating.

  On Sept 24 we did some equipment organizing and storing. Oscar is down for the count.

The rest of the week was devoted to the 10 Minute Play Fest that involved 7 plays which all took place at a taqueria. The subject matter ranged from issues of immigration, abortion, Alzheimer’s, grieving of a lost love, veganism, and a tattoo love triangle that had a gay theme.  Sept 24th was dress rehearsal for Tacos, Teardrops, & Tequila. Sept 25th and 26th were performance nights and the turnout was impressive. Following are highlights from the three evening’s performances.

Carlos Garcia stole the show with a sentimental story of the celebration of a love that has passed on.

All the actors joining hands raised on a job well done. Bravo!

                        My friend Juan Rodriguez was a big help in getting the food table set up.

                                  Check out David’s blog on the 10 Min Play Fest…great pics!
