Washington Performing Arts and GALA Hispanic Theatre join forces to co-present the world premiere of English with an Accent by Venezuelan American performing artist Migguel Anggelo.
The piece is a hybrid dance-theater work of original music that explores self-realization through the eyes of an anthropomorphized, immigrant caterpillar.
Fleeing the crime and noxious dictatorship of Venezuela, and unsure of which direction his insect life is taking, the caterpillar wonders how to honor his potential—when so many others assume he’s just a lowly worm.
As the caterpillar explores the streets of New York City, he begins to question his own identity as well as the promise of the “American Dream.”
Made possible with commissioning support from the Cultural Arts Center at Montgomery College, English with an Accent is being presented for one-night only on Friday, April 1 at 8 p.m. at GALA Hispanic Theatre.
