From our earliest days, Teatro Círculo has toured our plays to college campuses, high schools, NYC parks, and sites throughout New York City and State. As our reputation grew, we were invited to perform internationally at prestigious Golden Age Festivals in France and Spain.
With support from the Honorable Shaun Abreu, City Council District 7, and New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs, we received Cultural Immigrant Initiative funding to tour West Harlem with Carmen Rivera’s timely and powerful play, La caída de Rafael Trujillo, in June of 2023.
Thanks to generous funding from our international sponsor, the Mid Atlantic Arts’ USArtists Program, we brought our production of La vida es sueño/Life is a Dream to Spain’s Clásicos en Alcalá in July 2022.
Touring our work allows Teatro Círculo to provide contemporary Latin American work and Golden Age Classics, performed in Spanish, for audiences of 1st-3rd generation Latinx Americans and newly arrived immigrants. These touring performances serve to revive and preserve Spain’s Golden Age Classics and to amplify the voices of Latin American playwrights.
If you, would you like us to bring our work to your school, or community event, please contact José Cheo Oliveras at firstname.lastname@example.org.
