Teatro de la Luna was founded in 1991 with the intent of providing the Washington capital area with permanent access to theater from a Latin American perspective. We are incorporated in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia, and perform at the Gunston Arts Center, 2700 S. Lang Street, Arlington, VA., as well as in various venues in the District of Columbia and suburban Maryland. Our performances are in Spanish, with live English dubbing offered at our mainstage productions, during our International Festivals of Hispanic Theater and during La Pluma y la Palabra poetry marathon.
Our mission is to promote Hispanic culture and foster cross-cultural understanding between the Spanish- and English-speaking communities of our region via Spanish-language theater and bilingual theatrical activities. We forward our mission by producing plays, by teaching theater workshops to adults and children, by organizing poetry marathons and by producing International Festivals of Hispanic Theater. All these activities provide opportunities for community dialogue, participation, reflection and support.
Our vision is for a living, working theater with salaried actors, that trains Hispanic and non-Hispanic actors and theater technicians, provides bilingual theater related workshops and camps for children and teens, promotes the beauty of the Spanish language, and introduces new and unique forms of Hispanic theater to the greater Washington area.
