Words From A Cuban Father and Circo de tu corazón


Teatro de las Americas and Oxnard College present a double header of theatrical fun with playwright and performer Alina Cenal and director and performer James Donlon


Saturday, June 25, 2016 at 8pm and Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 5pm


Teatro de las Américas at Oxnard College Black Box Theatre, 4000 S. Rose Ave., Oxnard, CA 93033


WORDS FROM A CUBAN FATHER Mambo, carnival, revolution, Fidel and my dad, Miami, hotdogs, drag queens, the circus, Hollywood, music and dance highlight Cenal’s bilingual experience of being yanked from her native Cuba as a child and yearning to return. The strong presence of her father guides her through the American cultural landscape.

CIRCO DE TU CORAZÓN, delivered in a style evocative of Garcia Marquez’s magical realism, follows a colorful collection of eccentrics who populate a surreal circus lost somewhere in the Americas. JAMES DONLON & ALINA CENAL combine their expertise in comedy, movement, mask, improvisation, music and dance, to create beings and creatures of mystery and passion. CIRCO is a bi-lingual experience in Spanish and English where characters perform routines driven by skill, love and yearning. CIRCO was inspired by James Donlon’s many international performance tours to Mexico and Europe, and his four decades experience training fools for the stage, film, and circus. APPROPRIATE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
