Coyuntura 2020: An International Latinx Theatre Gathering, FEB 14-16, 2020 at SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (Vancouver, Canada)

From February 14th to 16th 2020, Coyuntura will gather theatre makers, administrators, and educators to celebrate, recognize, and envision the future of Latinx theatre practice in Canada. Workshops, facilitated discussions, and a free-form pitch session of Latinx works are interspersed with opportunities for Latinx theatre artists and their allies to meet, talk, and celebrate the launch of the Canadian Latinx Theatre Artist Coalition. The first gathering of its kind in Western Canada, Coyuntura is where veterans and new innovators meet; where discussions across difference and generations take place; Coyuntura is the moment where past, present, and future converge.

Neworld Theatre is proud to sponsor the panel, What Is Latinidad?, at Coyuntura 2020:  “What and who does the umbrella term ‘Latinidad’ refer to? Can ‘Latinidad’ exist at the intersections of race, cultural background, and nationality? What does it mean to represent ‘Latinidad’ on stage? What do we call ourselves? What do we have others call us? And who gets to decide?”
