Event Details

For the first time in About…Productions’ history, a student-written play will premiere as a full production! Performed by students and professional actors, I: Witness parallels the lives of veterans from the East L.A. Student Walkouts, Chicano Moratorium and seminal art movements with youth of current day East L.A. 

This production is part of the Chicano Legacy Project which aims to enrich the public’s knowledge of the rich history of the 1960s and 70s Chicano Movement, and provide youth with a transformative educational experience.
 
I: Witness is based on selection of interviews with Chicano elders conducted by highest-risk youth at East L.A. continuation high schools in residencies conducted by professional theater artists over the past 5 years. This full production is a first in the 17-year history of About…Productions' Young Theaterworks Program. 
 
I: Witness is based on interviews with Chicano elders: poet Gloria Enedina Alvarez, muralist and visual artist Yreina Cervantez, poet Marisela Norte, and filmmaker and producer Jesús Treviño. These main characters are guided by The Jaguar, a spirit animal, as they search for purpose and gain the courage to stand and affect change.
