History:

LaMicro Theater, Inc. was founded in September of 2003. Since then LaMicro Theater has produced plays by Juan Radrigán, Diana Raznovich, Marcos Barbosa, Edgar Chías, Gabriel Peveroni, Juan Mayorga and an original dance/theater piece called City Non-Specific created collectively by company members and presented in the 2012 New York City International Fringe Festival. In 2009, LaMicro started its educational program at the Sunnyside Public Library, offering a Children’s Theater Workshop which has always closed with a final presentation opened to the public and based on an original children’s story adapted to the theater. LaMicro has also had a Reading Series called Escena Sur that varies each year: Contemporary Chilean Plays I & II, Plays and Memory, and Contemporary Latin America Plays. These series have a format of a mini-festival, and it has consisted of public staged readings offered to New York City audiences in different venues including Instituto Cervantes, Word Up Community Bookstore, Black Box Theatre at John Jay College, and The Bridge Theater at The Shetler Studios in midtown Manhattan.
 
Finally, LaMicro Theater has a program called Movie Nights in which LaMicro presents Latin American and Spanish films or documentaries that have no distribution in this country.

Mission:

LaMicro Theater’s mission is to present high-quality Spanish, Latin American, and U.S. Latino theater in English and bilingual productions. We want to expose our audiences to contemporary and emerging playwrights whose work will lead us to explore new ideas and generate dialogue concerning the realities facedby our diverse communities.
LaMicro is committed to presenting under-produced playwrights and also to experiment with new media technology and work in collaboration with contemporary artists. LaMicro wants to produce plays that attract non-traditional audiences, including spectators who might never before have been to the theater.
