Ángel Vázquez, Puerto Rican performer and educator, will present his one man show, “Hecho en Puelto Rico,” (yes, the L is on purpose)

“Hecho en Puelto Rico” is a performance about the Puerto Rican crisis. In it, a young man is faced with the conflict of staying on the island or moving to the U.S. mainland, and before he decides, he opens up a suitcase his grandfather left for him. Inside the suitcase he discovers an entire history of Puerto Rico that he was never taught in school, a history that highlights the great accomplishments of Puerto Ricans throughout the world such as Roberto Clemente, Julia de Burgos, Eugenio María de Hostos, and many other prominent figures. Described as a comedy with a big heart, it is meant to educate and entertain. Ultimately, whether the young student stays on the island or moves to the mainland is irrelevant. The point is to understand where one comes from, to know one’s history, and to understand that, like many other cultures, Puerto Ricans have much to be proud of, much to offer the world, and a cultural richness that is undeniable.

COMENTARIOS EN LA PÁGINA DE FB – HECHO EN PUELTO RICO
. Excelente! Nunca imaginé aprendería tanto sobre la historia de mi país que siempre nos han querido ocultar. Si quieres aprender tu historia mientras ríes y hasta lloras cuando se te infla el pecho, tienes un deber como boricua de respaldar esta obra que es realmente nuestra. Agradezco a la producción por haberme enseñado en una noche, lo que por toda una vida ignoré por desconocimiento de nuestro propio sistema escolar. Te sorprenderá saber que son muchísimos más los puertorriqueños reconocidos en otras partes del mundo que te harán llenarte de orgullo. Arturo Schomburg por ejemplo… a que no tienes idea de quién fue? – Vi Cora
