RAICES – A LATINO THEATRE COMPANY IN RESIDENCE AT RLTP
Raíces Theatre Company is officially joining Buffalo’s thriving theatre community! “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, which means “roots” in English, was chosen as the name for the company because it perfectly encompasses the belief that in order to truly understand who we are as Latinos we must celebrate the present and always look at who we have been in the past in order to have a clear vision for the future. Raíces Theatre Company is dedicated to the development, nourishment, and production of modern and original plays and musicals written by Latino playwrights and that deal with the Latino experience.
