THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: PLAYWRIGHT OCTAVIO SOLIS ON WRITING A PLAY AND THEN HOW TO BRING IT TO LIFE, EDWARD VIDAURRE READS “GENERATION Z” AT THE TEXAS INSTITUTE OF LETTERS AND RICARDO ROMO’S TEJANO REPORT ON A TEJANO-IN-NEW YORK ARTIST CARLOS ROSALES-SILVA.
What up mi gente! This week we visit with acclaimed playwright and director Octavio Solis. This nationally acclaimed playwright has written more than 25 plays which have been produced all over the United States. Born and raised in El Chuco (El Paso, Texas) Octavio speaks to us about how he goes about writing a play. His approach and vision is remarkable. In the second of two videos, Octavio then tells us how he goes about getting the play on its feet, his interaction with director and actors and how he fine tunes the work. Check these two fascinating videos.
Also this week, we continue with our visit to the annual meeting of the Texas Institute of Letters. We hear from poet Edward Vidaurre who reads his poems “Generation Z” and “Why Roses Lose their Fragrance in Autumn.”
Lastly, Ricardo Romo showcases a Tejano artist who now resides in New York but whose abstract art is all about the borderlands. Check out the abstract art of Carlos Rosals-Siilva.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
