Joyce Foundation Funds Latino / Asian Fusion

Story by Marya Morsted

In January the Joyce Foundation announced that two Twin Cities theater companies are among the winners of a prestigious commission to write a season of plays inspired by a merging of Latino and Asian cultures.
The Joyce Foundation is based in Chicago and has focused for the past ten years on funding projects that bring diverse audiences together and create common cultural experiences. This latest commission will enable Teatro del Pueblo and Pangea World Theater to collaborate.
KFAI’s Marya Morstad sat down with playwright Marlina Gonzalez, Teatro del Pueblo’s Al Justiniano, and Angelique Power, Senior Officer of Culture at the Joyce Foundation.
