The Los Cuentos De Nuestra Gente Festival - The Stories of Our People will include three original 15-20 minute plays written by UCI students. These plays will share stories of their families, ancestors, and themselves in order to honor their experiences as minorities in the United States. This festival will not be limited to only Latinx narratives, and will also include other cultural minorities, sexual and/or gender identities, and mental health journeys. Whether autobiographical or not, the playwrights will be encouraged to include elements of their unique "histories" in the content they choose to write. The festival will also include a virtual fine-art visual gallery and various short neo-futurist performance pieces in between each play as interludes.
- When: Saturday, February 27, 7 p.m. PDT
