Audition for the Latino Theater Company's production of Melancholia to be performed in Los Angeles and at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The Latino Theater Company Presents Melancholia
Directed by Jose Luis Valenzuela
Melancholia is a unique look at mental and emotional damage inflicted on service men & women and their families after experiencing combat. The play explores the subject matter from a specifically Latino cultural perspective. Under the direction of Jose Luis Valenzuela, Melancholia was developed by the Latino Theater Company Laboratory through a process of research, improvisation and the exploration of new theatrical expressions. The play approaches the topic with drama, humor, music, dance, movement and a little Shakespeare.
'By dehumanizing others, a young, East LA marine back from Iraq, has dehumanized himself. His only companions, two imaginary friends'
