Creating Latinx Shakespeare, with Josh Inocéncio
Featuring Houston-based playwright Josh Inocéncio, this performance-filled evening will explore Latinx appropriations of Hamlet, centering on re-imaginings of Ophelia. Students will perform Inocéncio’s one-act play Ofélio, which draws on the Ophelia prototype to represent the experience of a queer Latino survivor of sexual assault. Inocéncio, who has also directed Shakespeare productions, will discuss his creative process and his view of the intersections of Shakespeare and Latinx drama.
Josh Inocéncio is a playwright and performer who focuses on queer and indigenous reclamations within Latinx and Euro-American cultures.
