La canción is the story of Rafa, a young man with a passion for urban music. One night, Rafa dreams of a song he has never heard before and when he awakens he inexplicably knows the lyrics to the song. Taunted by the song and with the desire to adapt it to urban music — for an upcoming singing competition — Rafa embarks on a quest to find its author, but in his search he unexpectedly discovers the truth about his origins.
The mission of the Alliance is to advocate on behalf of a strong Latino sector within New York’s competitive nonprofit theater and performing arts fields. To its membership, the Alliance provides a common platform for leadership development, strategic resource sharing, and building brand visibility. Member organizations are longtime theater companies running a full range of performance and education programs in Spanish and English. Together, the consortium serves a diverse and growing audience from all five NYC boroughs and the greater metropolitan area. All segments of this population — including largely underserved youth and the elderly — benefit from affordable access to new and classical theater works, cultural heritage preservation, and public dialogue. These ongoing accomplishments have earned the Alliance membership numerous merit and media recognitions at the local, national, and international levels.Quick Facts
