Through INGENIO, we seek to create a space where Latino/a/x playwrights of all races can develop their plays in a safe, supportive environment with mentors and artists to whom they can relate. INGENIO serves as an intrinsic step in the creation of new full-length theatrical works. Rehearsals and workshops culminate in readings and feedback sessions with audiences of theatre professionals and members of the public.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the pandemic, INGENIO 2020 will move to the digital realm, with rehearsals, workshops, and readings shifting online. INGENIO 2020 will offer the opportunity for collaboration beyond geographical limitations, as Milagro will be producing this year’s festival in association with Teatros Unidos, an emerging and growing collective of Latinx theatre organizations. In addition to Milagro, readings will be presented by Teatro Luna West and TuYo Theatre with more commitments forthcoming.
INGENIO 2020 will take place September 20 – 26, 2020 and we will be accepting script submissions through July 8th. Plays will be selected, assigned directors and actors, rehearsed, and presented as virtual readings.
