In October 2013, Teatro Visión launched the world premiere of its annual bilingual theatrical production of MACARIO, an adaptation of the classic novel and award-winning Mexican film which debuted with nine performances at the School of Arts and Culture @ Mexican Heritage Plaza in San Jose. A poor woodcutter whose sole dream in life is to experience one day without hunger, is caught at a crossroads when his dream comes true. But his soul is tested when some unexpected visitors show up. Written by the mysterious B. Traven, MACARIO was made into a film in the 1960s, winning international awards at Edinburgh and Cannes, and an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. It is a work steeped in magic and history that has become part of the fabric of Mexican culture. MACARIO is performed in Spanish with English supertitles. Teatro Visión will celebrate 30 years of community-inspired Chicano/Latino theater with an exciting year of programming beginning with their second annual production of MACARIO which features new musical elements and an expanded cast.
Teatro Visión will present their second annual theatrical adaptation MACARIO, from October 9-19, 2014, at the School of Arts and Culture at MHP. Click here to learn more about this exciting production http://www.teatrovision.org/macario or purchase tickets online at http://www.macario2014.bpt.me
