Written by Octavio Solis.
Directed by Sarah dAngelo
September 28–October 1 & October 5–8, 2017
Inspired by Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s 1935 Spanish Golden age classic, Life is a Dream, Dreamlandia, by Octavio Solis, is set in the borderlands between Mexico and Texas where it explores the terrain between illusion and reality. Immigration, labor relations, the narcotics industry, and the complexities of familia are scrutinized through Solis’ lyrical language, brutal truth and the multi-dimensionality of indigenous storytelling. Dreamlandia vibrates with the clash of cultural and sexual identities and illuminates the diversity of perspectives of those living on the edge of the U.S. and Mexico.
