Raíces Theatre Company, a Latino theater company located in Buffalo NY, has found a new home that will give the company the resources that it needs to spread its wings, while being grounded at the same time (Raíces means roots after all).
Thanks to a helping hand from Road Less Traveled Productions (RLTP), the theater company will be occupying space alongside RLTP at the Market Arcade Film & Arts Centre. “All good things come to those who wait,” said Raíces Founder and Artistic Director Victoria Pérez. “From the beginning of my artistic career it has been my dream to bring quality, enlightening and authentic Latino theatre to Buffalo. Co-founder Rolando M. Gómez and I have been on this road for 10 years waiting for the right moment and with the support of Road Less Traveled Productions the moment has arrived.”
*Raíces (FB) will continue its annual VOCES LATINAS reading series. Plays and dates for the reading series are:
