About event:

During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latina child raises her hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” Her teacher can’t answer the question.

Performed by a dynamic actor, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and intersectional feminist, and infused with Latin rhythms, hip-hop, and live-looping, this solo exploration follows that kid into adulthood, as she navigates growing up in an immigrant family, her identity as a first-generation American, and what the world might look like for her children. Where Did We Sit on the Bus? is a high-octane, tour-de-force theatrical experience that examines what it means to be Latiné in America.
