September is Hispanic Heritage Month and we are celebrating this year by introducing a new sub-series of programs on Radio Theatre called La Vida Latina.
Since 2007 Camino Real Productions has produced stage plays in Albuquerque that depict the lives of members of the Latinx community and deal with such crucially important subjects as identify, war and peace, lifestyles, oppression, racism, and discrimination in various forms.
In order to reach a broader audience, Camino Real Productions will be cooperating with KUNM’s Radio Theatre and theatre artists such as Albuquerque’s Las Hembras de Pluma and others. The works we will present on La Vida Latina reflect the aesthetic and cultural diversity of Latinx people both in New Mexico and elsewhere. Our first episode will include two short radio plays by New Mexico native Brian Eugenio Herrera, Coyote Calling: An Origin Story and Para Mi Abuela Whom I Call Grandmother. They are followed by a one act play, Mother Lode by Michelle Otero, a member of Hembras de Pluma.
In November, Camino Real Productions will join the worldwide Climate Change Theatre Action, presenting a reading of a program of short plays at Albuquerque's Vortex Theatre on November 4 at 3:00 pm On Sunday, November 12 we will broadcast the plays on KUNM’s Radio Theatre.
Climate scientists estimate we have 15 years to decarbonize the economy if we want to stave off the worst impacts of climate change. The time for action is now. But action requires a hopeful vision of the future. CCTA 2017, asks: “How can we turn the challenges of climate change into opportunities?”.
