Latinx Mafia presents a Latinx Incubator Reading: Memoria del Silencio en el País de la Eterna Primavera by Linda Maria Girón, directed by April Ballesteros. Set in the land of eternal spring, in a town where ghosts sing with the living, roses grow larger than cattle and nearby villages have gone missing; young Mari's quest to find her father's ghost becomes a desperate fight to restore her Tia Irma’s fading memory. Together, la familia Noguera face the boundaries of love when tested by the realities of life— aging, war and illness. Latinx Mafia’s mission is to empower and support Latinx teatristas by reclaiming, demystifying and recreating Latinx representation in theatre/media. Our vision: To ensure that Latinx representation in theatre and media radically and accurately embraces historically marginalized communities including but not limited to: the LGBTQ+ community, indigenous and Afro-Latinx people, differently-able folx, migrants regardless of immigration status, and the many linguistic backgrounds in Latin America.
