Description

“CUÉNTAME COYOTE ":http://www.milagro.org/1-Performance-Presentacion/2013-14Season/cuentame-coyote.html

Milagro’s bilingual national touring production

Written & directed by Dañel Malán

January 9 – 25, 2014

Leading hopeful innocents across treacherous lands, the coyote’s journey kicks up the dust of dried bones scorched from the sun.  The wind cries with the corridos of lost souls singing of Santa Muerte and the unbelievable trek of the thousands who have marched before them in search of the unattainable. The local ‘coyote’ makes promises for a price, but are their glorious dreams worth the reality that awaits them cruzando la frontera?

“ARDIENTE PACIENCIA ":http://www.milagro.org/1-Performance-Presentacion/2013-14Season/ardiente-paciencia.html

A lyrical drama

Written by Antonio Skármeta

Directed by Olga Sanchez

February 13 – March 8, 2014

Presented in Spanish with English supertitles

In the small paradise town of Isla Negra on the Chilean coast, renowned poet laureate Pablo Neruda teaches Mario, a young lovesick postman, how to woo and win beautiful Beatriz with passionate poetry.  This charming story of friendship and romance is set amid the turbulent political environment of Chile in the 70’s, and the rise of Pinochet’s military regime that changed history.

“LEARN TO BE LATINA ":http://www.milagro.org/1-Performance-Presentacion/2013-14Season/latina.html

An outrageous satire

Written by Enrique Urueta

Directed by Antonio Sonera

May 1 – 31, 2014

Hanan, a Lebanese-American, was born to be a star. She is talented, beautiful and full of determination. In the increasingly competitive music industry, she knows that sacrifices must be made in order to achieve her goals.  When the record executives demand she abandon her identity, Hanan accepts the challenge and takes us all on the wildest ride imaginable!  This play, skewering everything from pop culture to cultural identity, has won several awards including the first national Great Gay Play Contest!

About the Ticket Supplier: Miracle Theatre Group

The Miracle Theatre Group offers you an experience unlike anything else around. See one show, and you’ll have crossed the border to another culture; see a whole season, and you’ll have traveled the globe. Where else can you see live performances of a play by Federico García Lorca in Spanish with English supertitles? Or observe Portland’s longest-running (and bilingual) Day of the Dead celebration? From Afro-Cuban dance theatre to Argentine novelas, from Golden Age classics to world premieres of new work, you’ll find that performances at El Centro Milagro are always vivacious and visually stunning. We believe in experimentation informed by tradition; thinking creatively and acting collaboratively; being irreverent but never irrelevant. We entertain; we give you pause to think, feel and imagine; and, through the cultural lens of latinidad, we embrace the full spectrum of humanity.
