Santa Ana Sites: Cuñao’s Canción del Inmigrante

  • Bowers Museum 2002 North Main Street Santa Ana, CA, 92706 United States (map)

Celebrate Santa Ana Sites’ landmark 20th production at the Bowers Museum! Don’t miss this outdoor evening of unforgettable storytelling told through sound, puppetry, and community created folk art. Cuñao, a Los Angeles-based Latin folk band, will present a workshop presentation of the work Canción del Inmigrante, a multimedia “opera” infused with puppetry, song, dance and activism.

The presentation is a partnership with Santa Ana's Crear Studio, Sarah Rafael Garcia and Dino Perez. During an eight week residency, community members were invited to participate in free mask-making and storytelling workshops led by Los Angeles-based, puppet artist Beth Peterson and Cuñao, under the direction of Crear. Participants explored the contours of immigrants’ stories alongside the artists, and the production will incorporate and exhibit elements of the workshop into the experience.
