CSU-Pueblo to host reading, performance as part of Su Teatro collaboration

PUEBLO – Colorado State University-Pueblo will host a reading of Ask a Mexican at 2:30 p.m. on October 25 in General Classroom Building 111 by Su Teatro, a Chicano/Latino cultural and performing arts center based in Denver. In addition to the reading, CSU-Pueblo in collaboration with AARP and Su Teatro will host a performance of “I Don’t Speak English Only!” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25 at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center.  This performance is in the Mexican “tent show” tradition: a style prevalent in the 1920-30s in small towns across the Southwestern United States and Mexico.  The show imagines a world where all diversity is prohibited.

Su Teatro Director Tony Garcia has been working on a script from Gustavo Arellano’s book Ask a Mexican, a compilation of articles that Arellano wrote for the Orange County Weekly. The creation of the performance is possible from a generous grant from the National Performance Network.  CSU-Pueblo’s Chicano Studies program is collaborating with Su Teatro on this production. CSU-Pueblo will host a formal performance of Ask a Mexican in 2018.   

Tickets to the evening performance are available through the Su Teatro box office by calling 303-296-0219 or at the box office the night of the event. Tickets are $2 for students with student ID, $2 for AARP members, (Limit of 4 tickets per AARP member) and $10 for the general public.

For more information, contact Ashley Martínez, interim coordinator of Chicano Studies, at 719-549-2620 or ashley.martinez@csupueblo.edu. For more information on Su Teatro check out suteatro.org
