Bishop Arts Theatre Center presents Hector Cantú: An Afternoon With Baldo and Friends
The Bishop Arts Theatre Center will launch the 2019 Speaker Series with Hector Cantú: An Afternoon with Baldo and Friends.
Co-Creator of the Baldo comic strip, Cantú leads a panel discussion with playwright Ariana Cook (Cara Mía Theatre) and novelist Manuel “Manny” Martinez (University of Texas - Dallas). This community conversation will highlight topics on creating characters of color and culture as well as the artists' responsibility in expanding the literary canon by including these characters that will resonate with multicultural audiences. Hear from these creators as they bring their own characters to life with theatrical readings of their work, continuing the important discussion on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
