Luis Salgado and R.Evolución Latina (RL) are partnering with Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater (PRTT) for the latest edition of BEYOND WORKSHOP SERIES (BWS), an interdisciplinary (acting, dance, music) workshop and outreach program with professional teaching artists from Broadway, Film and TV, will be taught in conjunction with the historic Raúl Juliá Training Unit.
This year's BWS will focus on select text from Shakespeare, integrating music and dance. The workshop will culminate in a devised piece of theatre, developed by the RL creative team supported by PRTT's Raul Julia Training Unit and will be performed at the Harlem School for the Arts. The BWS offers excellent, affordable training, combined with rehearsal and performance opportunities, while cultivating the leadership skills necessary to unite and inspire our Latino community. In order to constantly grow as artists and activists, those selected to be members of BWS's Class of 2018 will have performance and outreach events throughout the workshop and throughout the year.
Luis Salgado, RL director, states, “This year’s thematic focus is "language", “going beyond” and "embracing your tribe" through the words of Shakespeare.” He is excited that “participants will not only move beyond their fears and the realities of society as artists and/or immigrants, but they will also share their truth, their humanity, and their own artistic contributions. We believe that it is opportunities like this one that build a greater community. We seek artists that are dedicated to growing and giving back through their art.”
“Partnering with REvolución Latina’s Beyond Workshops Series is a coherent, exciting step for our Training Unit. We have a common goal and commitment to rigorous arts training, and to creating exciting opportunities for growth and impact in our communities,” states Rosalba Rolon, Artistic Director Pregones/PRTT.
