Santa Fe-based Teatro Paraguas and tech company Xerb announced this week a partnership to bring the theater’s local Hispanic, Latinx and multicultural performances to the online platform.
Despite the challenges created by the current pandemic with regard to in-person gatherings, Teatro Paraguas has found ways to continue with its important work – giving a voice to the local community through theater, poetry, dance and other mediums – using a combination of live performances via conferencing tools, and now partnering with another local organization, Xerb, to make these performances more widely accessible.
“Teatro Paraguas is very pleased to partner with Xerb,” said Argos MacCallum, founding member and vice-president of Teatro Paraguas. “Especially since it is based here in Santa Fe with our good friends Alejandra and Eric Streeper. Although the pandemic has closed our brick-and-mortar theater, Xerb is the next best thing as a pathway for our theater artists to creatively explore the amazing world of Hispanic and Latinx theater, and to share our work with the public.”
