Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol, which was founded in 2003 by theater artists Luisa Pardo and Gabino Rodriguez, will perform El Rumor Del Incendio. The piece explores the lives of young Mexican student revolutionaries in the 1960s who took up arms in an attempt to change society. As the children of that generation, the artists retrace the struggle of their elders and look to the future. The collective will stay approximately one week in each community, allowing time for extensive engagement with local audiences and artists. Each presenter has planned outreach activities geared specifically to its own community, involving local educational institutions, cultural organizations, social service agencies, and others. All sites will include a presentation by Edwin Culp of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the Iberamerican University in Mexico City, who has written widely about the company. This is the first U.S. tour for Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol.
