Teatro del Pueblo presents Coco's Barrio: Alien Invasion
Teatro del Pueblo presents Coco's Barrio: Alien Invasion
Welcome to Coco’s barrio! From The Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis, join Teatro del Pueblo for a live bilingual radio broadcast of Coco’s Barrio. A satirical cross between SNL and Prairie Home Companion, Coco’s Barrio showcases the power of Latinx artists with humor, drama and lots of music. Our host, Coco, will again take us on a stroll through her barrio, where dogs bark Spanish lullabies and gatos meow “al son” Latino. On this episode, we’ll experience an alien invasion like no other. What if aliens suddenly come from the north and down from the sky, to a sleepy town in Mexico? Come to find out. You will also embark on a musical adventure with our musical guest (and house band) Alma Andina and special guest Mestifonía.

Co-directed by Alberto Justiniano of Teatro Del Pueblo, and Sue Scott.

Written by Silvia Pontaza, Al Justiniano, and Eric Silva Brenneman.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and culture heritage fund. Also funded by the McKnight Foundation, Carolyn Foundation and the East Side Arts Council.
