Pueblo Revolt explores the Pueblo Uprising through the eyes of a gay Pueblo teen, Feem, and his older brother, Ba'homa. Equally hilarious and poignant, the play weaves together history and Indigifuturism to examine queerness, family, religion, and survival.

 

“Initially, I was really connected to the character of Feem,” says Reed Flores, who will direct the project. “I'm also a Queer younger brother. But, as I kept rereading this play, I was really drawn to the language. A majority of the dialogue of this play is created in a sort of modern realism, how we talk today -- but then there are parts that lean into magic, into poetry, and those are the parts that really transport me to a different place.”

AlterTheaterNewLogoArt Works Downtown welcomes another collaboration with AlterTheater through their new show Pueblo Revolt. By showcasing the voice of indigenous communities through the medium of theater; this collaboration will enhance engagement with the visual arts, improve the sense of belonging in the art center, and expand cultural awareness. Art Works Downtown invites the public to join our excitement for professional theater in a visual arts environment.

"AlterTheater is thrilled to be collaborating with Art Works Downtown, once again! It's a vibrant space that brings together artists across unique intersections in innovative ways. Both of our organizations are committed to utilizing art as a vehicle to deliver tools and create pathways towards community wellness. Dillon Chitto's witty and playfully critical script, Pueblo Revolt, is the medicine we need right now. 

As audiences return to live performance safety is top of mind for us, and we couldn't ask for a better community partner in helping us create a healthy production environment." eric avery, producing artistic director ( you can tweak or edit as needed)

- AlterTheater seeks to create a more just, more equitable community by:

  • supporting the creative growth of theater artists from historically underrepresented communities;
  • telling stories that reflect the full complexity and diversity of our community; and
  • sharing stories with our full community, in places where people are.

Founded on the principles of ensemble collaboration and artistic risk, AlterTheater Ensemble is also committed to new works and local artists.
