Teatro Visión

Teatro Visión

Teatro Visión creates theater rooted in Chicanx and Latinx experiences to inspire the people of Santa Clara Valley and beyond to feel, think, and act to create a better world.

Teatro Visión was founded in 1984 by members of Women in Teatro, a statewide network of Chicano theaters. Over the last 36 years, Teatro Visión has commissioned, developed, and/or produced over 60 plays for audiences of more than 156,000 patrons.

Today, Teatro Visión continues to raise a unique, bilingual voice in Bay Area theater.

  • Our annual Día de Muertos production is a high caliber professional theater performance, a performance opportunity for local actors of all ages, and the anchor for a series of events that bring our community together around the themes of the play.
  • Our annual youth production offers a cast and crew of young people aged 10 to 18 the opportunity to build skills, confidence, and community connections by participating in a professional theater production.
  • Our community-based new work development programs draw on the diverse voices in our community to create unique, relevant works of theater that position Teatro Visión as an innovator in community engagement and theater creation.
  • Our teatro classes teach performance as a tool for social change, strengthening the critical thinking, self-confidence, communication, and problem-solving skills that students need to make positive changes in our community.

Departera virtual student matinee

Program description

BRING TEATRO TO YOUR STUDENTS AT HOME AND IN THE CLASSROOM

Teatro Visión knows that culturally relevant theater is important to your students’ education. Therefore, we are pleased to offer exclusive educational access to our recent production of Departera (2018).

Inspired by real stories gathered from our community, Departera is a witty, modern take on Día de los Muertos, full of inspiring music, touching stories, and diverse characters.

Departera is performed bilingually in English and Spanish, with English or Spanish captions.

HOW IT WORKS

Visit www.teatrovision.org/student_matinees and click on the BOOK NOW links to be taken to a form where you can register to access the video of Departera for your students.

After you register, usually within three days, we will send you a unique link. Please share this link ONLY with your students, as it will be good only for a limited number of views. The link will also expire at the end of the semester.

Your unique link will take you to an Overture.Plus site where you and your students can watch the video. You may choose to have your students watch independently on their computer or tablet or, if you wish to watch it together in a Zoom classroom, you can share your screen from Overture.Plus. You can turn on captions on the video by clicking the subtitles icon at the bottom of the video.
