GRANITE FALLS — The YES! House and the Department of Public Transformation present “Juracán: The Jíbaro and his Three Sons” at 7 p.m. Saturday at The YES! House in Granite Falls.
Tickets are $10 at the door, or pay what you can.
This action-packed solo show is a bilingual, family-friendly adventure with music, mask and audience participation. It was written and is performed by Ricardo Vazquez and directed by Robert Rosen.
It traces the history of Puerto Rico, its people and the many visitors that have claimed the island as their own. The history of the island from the Taíno kingdoms to the vulture capitalist aiming to turn Old San Juan into a future crypto-utopia for bitcoin billionaires is presented using pieces of debris left over from Hurricane María as the costumes, props and locations.
This piece is performed in the style of traditional street theater – which engages the audience and uses everyday objects to enhance the magic of the characters. In total, Vazquez plays over 14 characters during the show.
