Screening performance: Highland Park is here & Aftertalk

Artist: Cornerstone Theater Company

PERFORMANCE: HIGHLAND PARK IS HERE & Q & A ( 1,5 HOUR)

Produced during the Covid-19 lockdown in the second half of 2020, HIGHLAND PARK IS HERE is Cornerstone Theater Company’s first production created for online presentation. It features the murals, the music, the taqueros and tamaleros [Mexican food vendors], the house parties, gardens, hills, the arroyo [the river bank], and the residents of Highland Park, a popular neighbourhood in East L.A.. This excerpt, "Llegamos" [‘we arrived’], explores moments of community upheaval and the search for shared spaces and experiences. Written by Mark Valdez and directed by Michael John Garcés, the 40-person cast includes mostly community members of the Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park.

After the screening, we will host a Q&A with some of the Cornerstone artists and participants involved in this project.
