Joshua Daniel Martinez
The Canción Cannibal Cabaret
Jump-Start Performance Co. is showcasing three Alamo City Tejana powerhouses with its latest engagement, Tejana Atómica
. The three-day performance series will draw from recent work by actor-writer-activist Anna De Luna, performance poet, actor and playwright Amalia Ortiz and writer and teatrista Marisela Barrera.
In Tejana Atómica
, De Luna
will draw from her new work, Carmen from Mexico
, which retells her mother's story of immigration; Ortiz will give an encore of a selection of songs from The Canción Cannibal Cabaret
, which premiered
at the Guadalupe this summer; and Barrera will perform excerpts from her one-woman show Tejana Rasquacha
with the addition of new confessions and call outs.
tickets are set at three "Choose What You Pay" levels — $15, $20 and $25 — to make them accessible, but also give room for audience members to show their appreciation and support for the performance.
$15-$25, 8 p.m. Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12, 5 p.m. Sunday, October 13, Jump Start Theater, 710 Fredericksburg Rd., (210) 227-5867, jump-start.org.
