Su Teatro Cultura and Performing Arts Center
Su Teatro Cultural & Performing Arts Center’s mission is to promote, produce, develop and preserve the cultural arts, heritage and traditions of the Chicano/Latino community, to advance mutual respect for other cultures, and to establish avenues where all cultures may come together. Su Teatro, the resident theater company born out of the Chicano Civil Rights movement, is the third-oldest Chicano theatre in the U.S. While having a strong theatrical bent, Su Teatro also presents music, poetry, visual and film artists.
Artist collaborators are programmed into Su Teatro’s season that also includes the Chicano music festival and the Neruda Poetry festival. Artist collaborators fit within the Chicano aesthetic and represent an emerging vision of the Latino World experience. Residencies are structured within the curriculum of Su Teatro’s Cultural Arts Education Institute.
