“La Construcción del Muro” imagines an outcome of hatred against immigrants. What they encounter across the border might be more real than the public cares to accept. What happens when the discourse of hate gains political clout? Are we that far removed from living the consequences of such a scenario? These are some of the brutal questions that underlie the New York Spanish-language premiere of “La Construcción del Muro”. The Costa Rican multimedia stage adaptation of Pulitzer-Tony Award winner Robert Schenkkan’s “Building the Wall” is co-produced by Teatro Espressivo and Teatro LATEA.

Artists from several Central American countries enrich the production and demonstrate its relevance to all immigrants. Award-winning Costa Rican director Natalia Mariño is joined by Magdalena Morales, distinguished Guatemalan actress and cultural researcher, by Rodrigo Durán, distinguished Costa Rican actor and producer and by Ramón Mejía “Perrozompopo”, beloved Nicaraguan singer/songwriter who has contributed a haunting original musical composition.

From February 27 to March 15 in Teatro LATEA @ The Clemente, 107 Suffolk Street (2nd Floor) Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center. Tel. (212) 529-1948

Thursday – Saturday 7:00pm; Sunday 3:00pm
