Pregones/PRTT STAGE GARDEN RUMBA —Where Art meets Green in the South Bronx— goes digital for three unseasonably warm Monday nights in November-December!
Presented by Pregones/PRTT in partnership with We Stay/Nos Quedamos, Stage Garden Rumba is an open invitation for all New Yorkers to experience the cultural riches, green spaces, and vibrant Casitas of the South Bronx! This 2020 digital series documents four pop-up performances featuring some of Pregones/PRTT's favorite ARTISTS, ACTIVISTS, and COMMUNITY LEADERS. Hyperlocal and universal, their shared message for days of pandemic is one of rootedness, celebration, and collective uplift!
Hosted by performing artist and playwright Christin Eve Cato. Featuring writer and allodisiciplinary craftswoman Joselia Rebekah Hughes; human rights defender, educator, healer, and all-around community pillar Esperanza Martell; tenants' rights advocate, community organizer, and garden steward Maxi Rivera; and members of Pregones/PRTT Ensemble —Jesús E. Martínez, Omar Pérez, and Anthony Carrillo— in an excerpt from hit production Dancing In My Cockroach Killers, texts by the great Magdalena Gómez, directed by Rosalba Rolón.
