Chicanas Cholas Y Chisme 2016 Playing at Casa 0101 Through April 3

from Our Town El Sereno:

by Annette Cruz

   2016 marks the fourth year of production for "Chicanas, Cholas Y Chisme," a series of shows written, directed, and produced by Los Angeles-area Latinas. They launched their latest series of short plays on March 11 at Casa 0101 Theater in Boyle Heights. The series runs through Sunday, April 3.

   The idea for Chicanas, Cholas Y Chisme was conceived by Josefina Lopez who also founded Casa 0101 in 2000 as a non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing vital arts, cultural and educational programs. She has programs in theater, digital filmmaking, art and dance, easily accessible to residents in Boyle Heights and its surrounding communities. The Chicanas, Cholas Y Chisme program debuted in 2013 and was designed to foster more Latina creative work and build a community of Latina artists and producers.

Local Bands to Gather for 'Alternative FigJam' in Highland Park

A square dance group will play a show which includes local rock and punk groups, all performing at the "Alternative FigJam" event in Highland Park this Saturday. The concept is to show unity in a neighborhood currently divided along racial and economic lines. Although the actual FigJam outdoor art and music festival starts at 11:30 a.m. the same day, this event will happen just north of Figueroa Street on the same evening, just after the outdoor event on Figueroa concludes. The alternative show was inspired by local activists concerned with a prevalence toward embracing the new in Highland Park versus retaining the historic community which, according to promoters, took decades to develop yet mere months to nearly tear down. The longtime residents who can still afford to remain in Highland Park and surrounding neighborhoods, including the post-Mr. T's Bowl live music scene holdovers, decided to host their own event.
