We had the good fortune of connecting with Sofia Hurtado and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sofia, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
What should our readers know about your business?
We are proud to share rare stories that are told in an impactful and creative way. When you come to see a Third Culture play, you will always witness a strong script with 3-dimensional characters, highlighting an experience that is not often shown. We are excited to continue our partnership with HBO, which has empowered us to advance in our work. And to be back on the stage after a pandemic hiatus! We can’t wait to be reunited with our beloved audience and artists.
We have gotten to where we are today, through a community that supports the idea that theatre should reflect the beauty of our collectives. We can’t wait to keep making them proud, through our exceptional storytelling and community outreach. Whether it’s through a Third Culture Community Conversation post show, where invited guest speakers will moderate a conversation with the audience. Or going into different spaces (for example, Arts For Incarcerated Youth Network), and bringing the show to them. We believe theatre has the ability to unite people of radically divergent backgrounds and enhance our lives.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Monday night jazz at the Sofitel Hotel
Slam Poetry, Tuesday night at Da Poetry Lounge at The Greenway Court Theatre on Fairfax
Tacos Al Pastor at Leo’s Taco Truck
