In addition to our main stage productions, we are involved in several community projects. Here are some of them:
Multicultural Playwrights Festival, Represent!
Every year, eSe Teatro participates in Represent!, a Multicultural Playwrights Festival presented by eSe and three other Seattle theater companies, the Hansberry Project, SIS Production and Pratidhwani. Since 2011, Represent! has been bringing workshops and staged readings of new plays by playwrights of color from artistic communities represented by the producing companies.

eSe Teatro will be presenting “Chords,” by Cristian López.
Sometimes the ones you love the most are the hardest to talk to. Through a set of unexpected characters, “Chords” explores tough family relationships and how people can navigate the waters of their peculiar communications styles.

Friday 11/09 – eSe Teatro presents Silueta by Diana Burbano, Chris Shelton, Tom Shelton
In 1985 Ana Mendieta, Cuban performance artist, 36 years old, plunged 34 stories to her death from a SoHo apartment tower. Her husband Carl Andre, the famous Minimalist sculptor, was tried and acquitted of her murder, a verdict that polarized the New York art world: The establishment rallied to Carl’s defense while Ana became a cause celebre for feminists, convinced of Carl’s guilt. Silueta imagines Carl Andre, 35 years later, riddled by frustration at the loss of his artistic potency and a gnawing suspicion about his complete innocence. The ghost of Ana, meanwhile, haunts him relentlessly at the scene of her death, the apartment they shared and where he still lives today. They are both obsessed with the same question, what really happened that fatal night? Would even knowing the truth set them free?
