Bachillerato Integral de Cd Juarez (BIJ) is initiating a campaign to raise funds to bring Eduardo Salmeron (principal of BIJ) and one student, to New York City to witness Theater Mitu’s production of JUÁREZ: A DOCUMENTARY MYTHOLOGY while engaging with the audience. Theater Mitu will host a talk back with Eduardo Salmeron, a BIJ student, and Artistic Director Rubén Polendo after the October 4th 8pm Show at Off-Broadway’s Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. BIJ was an integral partner in the development of JUÁREZ: A DOCUMENTARY MYTHOLOGY over a period of three years in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Theater Mitu company members have given masterclasses at BIJ and continue to have an ongoing commitment in the success of BIJ and its students.

Why do you believe in this piece?

Because this piece is about us from an outside perspective, is not us telling our own story. Also because is a story that surfaced from a collection of voices and pieces that were intertwined and interpreted by Mitu. Without doubt is bizarre but at the same time very important, to see yourself through the eyes of others.

 

Why do you want to come to NY?

To see the reaction of people …I would like to see, to know what the piece stirs up in them, what it makes them think, to find out what was the audience perspective of our city and what they think after the piece. I would like to know if the play will bring the audience "closer" to us or if it confuses them. We have a lot of expectations about going to New York a lot of expectation to watch the play and really just to be there.  

 

Why is this campaign important to BIJ? 

Three students and the principal from BIJ were interviewed, and without doubt we are part of those multiple voices that were used. In one way or another our stories are intertwined with the rest of the stories, and in a way it has something to do with us. Is important for people to know that after the hard times, we continue to walk together in our city, that we continue to do stuff, that students keep going to school, and that above all there is a lot of hope.

Bachillerato Integral de Cd Juárez (BIJ) está empezando una campaña para llevar a Eduardo Salmerón (Director de BIJ) y un alumno, a la ciudad de Nueva York para ser testigos de la producción de JUÁREZ: UNA MITOLOGÍA DOCUMENTAL e involucrarse con la audiencia. Theater Mitu va a tener una charla con Eduardo Salmerón, un alumno de BIJ y el Director Artístico Rubén Polendo. Esta charla será después de la función de las 8pm en Octubre 4 en el teatro Off Broadway’s Rattlestick Playwrights. BIJ fue un compañero integral en el desarrollo de JUÁREZ: UNA MITOLOGÍA DOCUMENTAL durante un periodo de tres años en Cd. Juárez, México. Miembros de la compañía Theater Mitu han impartido clases magistrales en BIJ y siguen teniendo un compromiso continuo con el éxito de BIJ y sus alumnos.

Porque crees en esta pieza?

Porque se trata de nosotros desde la perspectiva de los de "afuera". No somos nosotros mismos contando nuestra historia. Esta hecha a partir de multiples voces y cuyos pedazos fueron tejidos e interpretados por Mitu. Sin duda es extrano y a la vez muy importante, el percibirte a traves de otros ojos.

Porque quieres venir a NY?

Para ver la reaccion de la gente a partir de la obra que estan viendo. Saber que les provoca, que les hace pensar, cual era su perspectiva acerca de nuestra ciudad y como nos ven. Tratar de entender si la obra los "acerca" a nosotros o los confunde. Tenemos mucha expectativa por ver una vez la obra y emopcion por estar alla.


Porque esta campaña es importante para BIJ?

3 alumnos de Bij y el director fueron entrevistados y son parte de esas multiples voces, de alguna manera u otra esas historias entrelazadas tienen que ver con nosotros. Es importante que la gente sepa que despues de los tiempos dificiles seguimos caminando como ciudad , que seguimos haciendo cosas, que los alumnos siguen llendo a la escuela y que hay mucha esperanza.

 

Theater Mitu apoya al Bachillerato Integral de Cd. Juárez (BIJ) en su campaña FundRazr como un esfuerzo para impulsar a su público en la ciudad de Nueva York de su producción, JUÁREZ: UNA MITOLOGÍA DOCUMENTAL, ayudando a recaudar fondos para el director de BIJ, Eduardo Salmerón y uno de sus alumnos, quienes jugaron un papel decisivo en la investigación, el desarrollo y la creación de la pieza.
