A New Play by Keila Anali Saucedo, directed by Marcela Michelle

In Partnership with Lightning Rod

November 5-20, 2021
Presented at Mixed Blood Theatre

Brujería For Beginners es una obra/ofrenda de parte de Keila Anali Saucedo Martinez Corona. 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.

First shown as a one act play for as part of 20% Theatre Company’s 2019 Q-STAGE: New Works Series program, the story expands and invites the audience to enter the spiritual world that exists among us all.

Featuring performers Johanna Keller Flores, Gael Palen, Lelis Brito, Natalie Tran, Gregory Parks, Deanalís Resto, Quinn Williams, and Javari Horne.
Production Team: Suzanne Cross, Mayra Gurrola Calderon, Madeline Achen, snem DeSellier, Queen Drea, Anna Brauch & Mari Navarro, and Jay Apollo.
