The Hall of Negro Life was a momentous prelude to Civil Rights History, through a documentary film with Southroad Pictures.

The Dallas' arts community morns the loss of Teatro Dallas founder, Jeff Hurst. Jeff served on numerous boards, commissions, and grassroots organizations that helped transform the Dallas arts community.
Jeff thank you for your inspiration and hard work.

Teatro Dallas, its family, friends and artists mourn the loss of its founder Jeff Hurst. Jeff was a filmmaker, lighting designer, arts advocate, cultural activist, and musician. He was actively involved in the struggle for arts parity and equity in Dallas, and he served on numerous boards, commissions, and grassroots organizations that helped transform the Dallas arts ecosystem. Teatro Dallas’ mission to empower the Latino community through professional theater was grounded in Jeff’s vision for a vibrant and healthy city in which we all uplift one another. ❤️

Don't forget to join us next week, March 16 @ 10am for our monthly Cine de Oro. We will be screening "Camino de Sacramento."

In Sacramento, Mexico, Antonio Ruiz is a bandit better known as 'El Halcon' (The Hawk). He had a twin brother who unfortunately died some time ago. At least this is what he thinks. In Seville, Spain, Juan Ruiz is a lawyer who once had a twin brother before he died. At least this is what he believes. So when Juan travels to Sacramento and finds Antonio alive the two brothers fall into each other's arms. They soon decide to join forces to fight against Enrique Ledesma, the governor of Sacramento, who murdered their father. But they also vie for the beautiful eyes of Luisa, who can't marry both of them.

Next month we are reviving our line dancing classes! Keep your eye out for details.

Artist Marian Ichaso Lefeld joins us for a live conversation with curator Silvia Benedetti on Marian’s recent solo exhibition Tierra de Gracia on view at the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas.

Tierra de Gracia showcases a selection of recent large-scale paintings that represent Marian's perspective on the Venezuelan Modernist utopia resulting from the 20th-century oil boom. The paintings also reflect on the contradictions of Venezuela--representing both its development as a modern state but also its social and economic collapse brought about by the past decades’ so-called Bolivarian Revolution. Throughout the exhibition, the artist renders Caracas as a place that now lives through her personal story and memories.

In this virtual event, Marian Ichaso Lefeld will walk you through the exhibition followed by a Q&A with curator Silvia Benedetti.

Las Sillas

Presented by Teatro Gótico, Written by Eugène Ionesco, Directed by Eduardo Ruíz Saviñón and starring Cora Cardona, Rodrigo Mendoza and Sergio Rüed

Teatro Gótico is known for its stark humor and post-punk, minimalist aesthetic that explores classics of gothic literature; Southern, English and Spanish. Through innovative adaptations of the likes of Melville, Shelley, Stoker, and Tenessee Williams, this Mexico City based theater company reinvigorates familiar tales through a contemporary lens.

In this innovative iteration of Ionesco’s absurd masterpiece, an aging couple comes to represent a depleted contemporary society. Through their nightly games, this couple manifest the struggles of migration to a promised land, a reality that plagues the developing world. The intimate becomes universal, as violence and exhaustion within the family becomes a metaphor for the struggle between powerful states and global citizens.

The presentation is in Spanish accompanied by an English libretto.

The staff, board and artists of Cara Mía Theatre mourn the loss of Jeff Hurst, the co-founder of our sister company, Teatro Dallas. With his wife Cora Cardona, Jeff pioneered professional Latinx theatre in Dallas in the 1980's when all Latino actors and theatre artists worked on Teatro Dallas' stage at Commerce and Central in Downtown Dallas. Many of us are here today because of Jeff, Cora and Teatro Dallas' legacy. Jeff was a dear friend of Cara Mía Theatre's, an ardent supporter of our work and a passionate ally in our struggle for racial equity in the arts in Dallas, especially when our two groups finally landed a double residency at the Latino Cultural Center. Our hearts go out to the Cardona-Hurst family as we grieve this tremendous loss of a friend and camarada. He will be greatly missed but he will live on in our hearts and memories. Buen viaje, querido Jeff.
