What to do if you find yourself in San Antonio this weekend

San Anto's the place to be this weekend. First, for the first-ever TEATROFEST at the GCAC, and secondly, for ELIA ARCE's newest performance piece, "The Fifth Commandment."

I'll be performing a spoken word soliloquy on dreams titled "Sueno Despierta" on Friday night. Other awesome groups, including MADMEDIA and CARA MIA, will perform showcases throughout the weekend. And I'm really looking forward to the lonche/platica on Saturday wherein all assembled will discuss the state and art of Chicana/o theater in Texas and beyond.

For more info, go here.

AND--if that wasn't enough, there's also the new one-woman show by L.A.-based Elia Arce, which opens at the Jump-Start Theater (also in San Antonio) on Friday night, June 24th.

from the San Antonio Express-News:

"Performance artist Elia Arce brings her solo show "The Fifth Commandment" to Jump-Start Theater Friday through June 26. The show, which she based on interviews with military personnel, explores the personal ethics of soldiers during wartime. Arce will perform at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 3 p.m. June 26 at the theater, Building B of the Blue Star Arts Complex, 1400 S. Alamo St. Tickets cost $12 general admission. Call (210) 227-5867 for reservations."

Teatristas reign in the city of the Alamo this weekend, boi.
