A new kind of Greek Tragedy.  Where the South Side Locos are Kings and Spanglish rules.

A Chicano take on the Greek tragedy Electra, Luís Alfaro’s Electricidad is a brutally modern adaptation of the classic revenge saga set within gang culture of the “barrio”. One of the foremost Latino playwrights in the U.S. and winner of the MacArthur “Genius Award”, Luís Alfaro’s eye-opening rendition situates the iconic characters in the present-day world of the “Cholo” where the South Side Locos are Kings and Spanglish rules. Electricidad is mourning her father’s body in her front yard, much to the dismay of the vecinos (neighbors) and her mother Clemencia, who was rumored to have had him killed to establish her power in the gang hierarchy. A comical bilingual chorus called “El Chisme” gossips and tries to save their barrio from inevitable cycles of violence.

eSe Teatro‘s presentation of Electricidad is a blend between a staged reading and a fully produced play, presented in Spanglish.

You can also see this play May 26th, 6:30pm at South Park Community Center, as part of the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative.

Un nuevo tipo de Tragedia Griega.
Donde los Locos Del Sur son los reyes y el Spanglish domina.

Una variación Chicana de la Tragedia Griega Electra, Electricidad de Luís Alfaro es una adaptación brutalmente moderna de una historia clásica de veganza situada dentro de la cultura de las “pandillas de barrio”.
