Teatro Milagro Presents ‘Cuéntame Coyote’ at CCC

Article by: Janet Paulson

OREGON CITY - Portland's bilingual touring company Teatro Milagro returns to Clackamas Community College for a performance of "Cuéntame Coyote" on Thursday, May 1, at noon. The production in both English and Spanish will be performed in the McLoughlin Auditorium.

In "Cuéntame Coyote," two cousins are abandoned in the desert, crossing the border with a "coyote." In their struggle for survival they encounter coyotes with two legs and four along with a host of other spirits along their journey. The play is written and directed by Dãnel Malán.

The play was developed after an intensive research trip to the Tohono O'odham reservation in Arizona. Sacred stories combined with migrant tales of the dangers of dehydration, snake bite and scorpions in the desolate 100 degree desert heat fuel the storyline of this new Milagro work.  Nathaniel Patterson joins Milagro this season in the title role of Coyote. Ajai Terrazas Tripathi and Alida Holquín Wilson-Gunn are the two cousins and Mariel Sierra plays various roles.

A workshop to share tales of journeys and sacred stories of our ancestors will follow the performance. For more information about the play or the workshop, contact Irma Bjerre at 503-594-3245 or by email at irmab@clackamas.edu.
