Summary

Celebrating Community Voices

Friday, January 10 at 7:30 p.m.

The Festival kicks off with Celebrating Community Voices, an evening of short works created by San Diego residents through the Globe’s arts engagement programs Community Voices and coLAB. These readings include Codeswitchin’ Is Conscious by Andréa Agosto, Pussycats by Thelma Virata de Castro, Tune Up by Tim Cole, The Mojave by Jaime Estepa, Transit Stop by Jordan Jacobo, When the Sun Dies by Melanie Taing,and Courtesan Way by Zakiyyah Saleem. All of the readings will be directed by Gerardo Flores Tonella and Katherine Harroff. The Community Voices and coLAB initiatives are play-development workshops that provide professional theatre-making skills to select San Diego communities. This evening is a curated collection of some of the best short scripts developed in these programs.

A line for standby seating will form 30 minutes before each performance of the Powers New Voices Festival.  Based on ticket-holder attendance, those standing in the standby line may be seated.  Seating is based on seat availability and is not guaranteed.  Latecomers with tickets are also not guaranteed admittance.
