On a co-production with New Perspectives Theatre, we are please to be producing the play How to Melt Ice or (How the Coyote fell in love with the butterfly who tried to be a lizard) by Amalia Oliva Rojas in February 2023. This play tells the story of one family’s journey from Mexico to NYC and their 20-year residency as business owners and community members increasingly under threat of deportation. Playwright Amalia Oliva Rojas weaves together a tapestry of magical realism, Mexican mythology and authentic immigrant experience in a highly stylized framework that explores the demands of familial love and the generational divide between “Dreamers” and those who carried them to the promised land.

“Imperfecta invisible” dreams of being a Rockstar and a famous actress. But how can someone invisible achieve these dreams? One day, she walks into a space where she can be seen. Is it a stage? Is it her subconscious? There are pieces of her life, her dreams and nightmares displayed everywhere, but there is also a rock band and an audience. Imperfecta invisible is the story of a woman that for years believed what was told about herself: you can’t do this, you’re too fat, you are unpretty. In a world made of fashion magazines, photoshop and influencers, she does not fit. Or does she?
Imperfecta invisible takes us on a funny albeit sometimes painful journey through love, college, auditions, diets, antidepressants and hair.
When: July 20-23, 2023
Where: Julia de Burgos Performance and Arts Center
