Brujería For Beginners is a play that explores what it might mean to reimagine Mexican people as complex, magical, and in touch with the realities of their spirituality. The play follows a family while grief is closing in around them. As they try to process their worlds, they explore catholicism, witchcraft, and indigenous spirituality to find their way to the holy. Guided by spirits, love for each other, and ancestors (always) they find their way to claiming power and possibility.
Directed by Marcela Michelle, sound design by Eric Gonzalez, and set/prop design + wearables by Kieran Myles-Andrés Tverbakk. Featuring Atquetzali Quiroz, Johanna Keller Flores, Lelis Brito, Stephanie Ruas, Xochi de la Luna, and Keila Anali Saucedo. Co-produced by 20% Theatre Company for Q-Stages 2019.
