Lucha Libre in the Global Arena
ONLY ONE PERFORMANCE! All ages (recommended 6 years old and up!)
From Glass Half Full Theatre: Lucha Libre in the Global Arena is a bilingual show featuring wrestlers who represent solutions for Climate Crisis: Alternative Energy, Carbon Capture, El Resourcerer, and Zorro Waste. These luchadores each have their own plan to save Planet Earth, but they don’t agree which will work best. Collective action? Individual choices? The latest technologies? Or ancestral knowledge? They’ll need to overlook their differences and work together to defeat the ultimate combatant, Max Extinction. Blending the Mexican form of Lucha Libre with digital media and puppets, two actors perform six characters en español e ingles to wrestle their way to a global solution for Climate Change.
Featuring Indigo Rael and Adam Martinez, with the vocal talents of Eva McQuade. Directed by Caroline Reck and written by the artistic staff of Glass Half Full Theatre (Indigo Rael, Caroline Reck, and Gricelda Silva). Duration: 50 minutes. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
