The Heroine of This Play May Have Left Mexico, But Her Family Ties Remain Stronger Than Ever
Be inspired by the incredible journey of a young girl, Tina, at the newest onstage production to hit the Latino Cultural Center. Tina’s Journey paints a picture of culture and family and is sure to tug at the heartstrings! Check it out on Thursday, November 15th at 8:00 p.m.
Tina’s Journey (El Viaje de Tina) is about a young girl, her family, and her ancestors who hope to cross the U.S.-Mexico border before the Day of the Dead holidays. For safe-keeping, Tina takes a piece of her native land in her pocket and her personal history in her heart. She also leaves a trail of marigolds for her ancestors to safely follow her family across the border.
However, Tina’s new reality in the United States makes her ill to the edge of death. She believes that her past has abandoned her but her eldest ancestor helps her understand that the coexistence of the two cultures will form part of her new identity.
Performed in contemporary and Mexican folk masks, Tina’s Journey is a visually stunning, whimsical yet heartfelt production that is a treasure for all ages. Originally created for families and young audiences, Tina’s Journey is also a joyful and accessible way for young people to learn about the migration of children into the United States.
Tina’s Journey is appropriate for all ages and is performed in Spanish with English supertitles. Tickets start at 10 dollars and may be purchased online.
