Mis Papás

Mis Papás

In the form of a 15-round boxing match, Mis Papás is a bilingual (English & Spanish), passionate, and personal adaptation of Stella and Pedro Sr’s story, years after immigrating to Canada for a better life. A life-threatening infection rewrote their story, and put an asterisk on their “happily ever after.” Adapted from interviews with Pedro’s parents, Mis Papás is a piece of intense physical theatre with moments of choreographed boxing and unscripted sparring between performers. Mis Papás represents a story most immigrants can relate to but that is often not represented on stage.
