Upcoming and Ongoing Events at LATEA

September 14 – 23, 2018, LATEA Theater


In “The Waters of Friendship”, The characters share the encounters and dis-encounters experienced while living in countries traversed by borders, in communication, censorship, indifference and violence. Between life and death, memories and games, Catalina and Miranda weave their relationship, turning friendship into a community of affect, a virtual homeland of solidarity where to live amidst political and spiritual exile.

“The Waters of Friendship” performs from Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 23 at LATEA Theater, at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, 107 Suffolk Street (between Rivington and Delancey Streets). Performances (a total of 8) are: September 14th, 15th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd,  at 8 p.m. and September 16th and 23rd at 4 p.m. Tickets are $15 for students and $20 for general audience.


“Five Sessions” follows a 24-year-old Caucasian female, Columbia University graduate and therapist, in her very first client, a blue-collar activist and suicidal Latino man in his mid-50s, upon five sessions to confront his issues. Through the tensions of race, political correctness, socio-economic differences, and passion, we watch the two characters explore each other’s personal struggles as they fight to understand each other. Performances are Thursday – Sunday, October 11th – 14th, and October 18th – 21st, 2018. Doors open at: 6:30pm on Thursdays, 7:30pm on Fridays, 7:00pm on Saturdays, and 1:00pm on Sundays.
