Glass Half Full Theatre Presents: Yamel Cucuy

October 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$15 – $45

Yamel Cucuy is the story of a girl on the precipice of adulthood, contending with the physical and metaphysical violence of borders. Yamel is hunted by immigration agents while haunted by specters from the folklore of her youth in Mexico. On the shadowy frontier between worlds, she forges her own spirit of courage and wisdom, in the refusal to be “taken away,” either by legendary phantoms or agents of human law. Set to an original score of indigenous percussion and folkloric guitar, Yamel Cucuy blends sophisticated puppetry with live actors and draws upon frightening folk tales and modern horror movies to create a terrifying psychological landscape of pitfalls both legal and spiritual. Created for adult audiences. Teens welcome.

Featuring Gricelda Silva, Gustavo Martinez, Lori Navarrete, Tane Ward, Marina DeYoe Pedraza, Indigo Rael, and Connor Hopkins. Directed by Caroline Reck, with original score by Paul Pinon. Dramaturgy by James Montaño. Sound Design by Eliot Hayes, Lights & Video by Rachel Atkinson, Puppetry & Scenic Design by Caroline Reck, Indigo Rael, and Connor Hopkins. Costumes by Annie Ulrich.
