eSe Teatro Joins Seattle Center in 'Next 50' with Mask Workshop Today, 5/18
eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage, Seattle's Latino Theatre Collective, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World Fair by participating in The Next Fifty Celebration. One of the few (and only Latino) artistic and cultural organizations chosen by the Seattle Center Foundation for funding, eSe Teatro has created a series of inclusive artistic programs.
May 18 & 20: eSe Teatro's own Arlene Martínez will lead a Mask-Making Workshop for ages 10 to 100, and up! Session I, on Friday May 18 runs from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. Session II, on Sunday May 20 runs from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Because of the process of mask-making, participants are required to attend both sessions to complete the project. This is a free workshop and all materials & supplies are provided. No previous artistic experience is necessary! The workshop will be held at the Intiman Theatre, and globally broadcast as part of the Global Classroom initiative. Pre-registration is required and can be done through our online form at: http://www.eseteatro.org/Opportunities.html or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
June 16: eSe Teatro writers and directors produce a series of Outdoor Performances entitled eSe All Over. Included in the performances are "Frida in My Head" by Nilki Benitez, "Don Quixote: Homeless in Seattle" by Rose Cano, and "I Want to Live in America" by Arlene Martínez. Performances start at 1:00 pm and run at the top of the hour until the last performance at 3:00 pm.
All of these programs are funded by The Next Fifty.
