Teatro Dignidad and Coalición de Derechos Humanos Presents Elaine Romero’s El Tiradito World Premiere
Myth, border crossings, and activism converge on the site that is El Tiradito in this multi-layered immersive play that looks at the interwoven stories of a place; or an idea of a place that has held significance for our community since its founding in 1871. As new migrants still wander a perilous desert to attempt to come to the U.S., Elaine Romero’s play explores years of activism at the Wishing Shrine, and captures the longing and love inspired by El Tiradito. Whether it be in service of an impossible cause, a cry to activism, or the simple retelling of how El Tiradito might have been founded, this shrine holds a place for all of us. Come. Engage. Renew your faith on unconsecrated and sacred earth.
This immersive play will be presented at El Tiradito Wishing Shrine (418 S. Main Ave, Tucson, AZ 85701) from September 14-17, 2023 at 7:30 pm & September 21-24th at 7:30 pm. Ticket Reservations can be made here.
$20 General • $15 for student/teacher/artist/military
