The nation's first Latinx/BIPOC coalition
Teatros Unidos is an emerging and growing collective of Teatros and BIPOC Theatre organizations that uplift and give voice to their historically silenced communities by producing plays, multicultural and multigenerational community programs.
The coronavirus pandemic has shed light on prevailing inequities in all facets of American life. Facing uncertainty and loss of earned income, Milagro reached out to Latinx theatres from across the country to come together to share their experiences and challenges and promote each other’s work. Through this initiative, Teatros Unidos was born.
The group includes 14 Latinx theatre ensembles who share resources, information, and creative work. Since May 2020, Teatros Unidos has been meeting bi-weekly and is committed to expanding the circle through and beyond the immediate aftermath of the pandemic. Although there are resources for individual Latinx artists to come together, this is the only Natio nal Teatro collaboration that exists.
The group includes Baktun12 (Salinas, CA), Borderlands Theater (Tucson, AZ), Cara Mía Theatre Company (Dallas, TX), In The Margin Theatre (Sacramento, CA), Milagro (Portland, OR), Teatro Alebrijes (San Jose, CA), Teatro Bravo (Phoenix, AZ), Teatro Luna West (Los Angeles, CA), Teatro Nagual (Sacramento, CA), Teatro Visión (San Jose, CA), Teatro Vivo (Austin, TX), TuYo Theatre (San Diego, CA), and UrbanTheater Company (Chicago, IL)
