John Leguizamo Returns to the Bay Area with John Leguizamo: Latin History of Morons
The outrageous, multifaceted performer attempts to teach his son (and the rest of us) about the marginalization of Latinos in U.S. history and the vital roles they played in building this country. From a satirical recap of Aztec and Incan history to stories of Latin patriots in the Revolutionary and Civil War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down 3,000 years into 90 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark comedic style.
History was never so mind-blowing…or hysterical! Latin History for Morons plays July 1-August 14 at Berkeley Rep. Discounts for under 30. Bring a group: Buy 10, save $10 (each ticket!). Visit BerkeleyRep.org for tickets.
“My Brother’s Keeper? Expressions of Our World Today” art exhibition.
Are we our brother’s keeper? When it comes to the earth, equality, and the harmony of our fellow humans, do we bear a responsibility, regardless of who or where we may be? Back To The Picture presents six artists and their vision of our world today through powerful depictions on our present state.
Join us in July for a commentary, sometimes raw and intense, sometimes playful. What at first may seem light on the surface, soon pulls a deeper truth from within.
On display works of Art Hazlewood, Jessie Aquire, Kathy Aoki, Consuelo Jiménez-Underwood, Mark Harris, Robyn Kralique. July 3 – 31, 2016 Curated by Derek Hargrove.
Opening reception with the artists Saturday, July 9, 2016 7-10 p.m.
