DE INGA Y MANDINGA: A Tale from Latin America
May 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20
Early Music Seattle presents
Delayed this season because of the pandemic, we are planning a full-length dramatic production of De Inga y Mandinga in partnership with the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. De Inga y Mandinga (roughly translated to “of Indigenous and African heritage”) is a multimedia, multidisciplinary and multi-generational bilingual theater production that celebrates cultural and ethnic diversity in Latin America through stories of colonialism, migration, and cultural mixing. This program is created and directed by Dr. Monica Rojas Stewart.
De Inga y Mandinga (roughly “of Indigenous and African heritage”) is a multimedia, multidisciplinary and intergenerational bilingual theater production that celebrates cultural and ethnic diversity in Latin America through stories of colonialism, migration and cultural mixing. The 2023 De Inga y Mandinga version will be a new iteration of previous versions staged in 2012, 2013 and 2014, in which we will incorporate Sephardic and Ladino repertoire along with Afro-Latinx diasporic music. The artists for this show include the DE CAJóN Project music group (Eduardo Montero, Taryn Webber, Reynaldo Ruiz, Monica Rojas-Stewart), Milvia Pacheco, Lian Caspi, Ke Guo and Gus Denhard. This is a collective creation by the artists with script writing support of Antonio Gomez and under the artistic direction of Monica Rojas-Stewart. This show is co-presented by Early Music Seattle and LANGSTON.
