Culture Shock

This Sunday sees a host of interesting literary events that, unfortunately, take place at the same time. Can you make all of them? Probably not, and certainly not without the unethical use of time travel. But go to one, tell friends to go to the others and then celebrate the fact that we're a community that's able to support concurrent readings.

Performance Preview

The True History of Coca-Cola in Mexico by Aldo Velasco and Patrick Scott

Directed by Becca HolmesStarring Demet Vialpando and Nick Lopez

Ka-HOOTZ’s first production at Aux Dog is the regional premiere of The True History of Coca-Cola in Mexico, a work Holmes believes is a perfect fit for Albuquerque. It follows two young filmmakers as they travel through Mexico to document what they see as the corrosive influence of American capitalism on Mexican culture.

Dead or Alive by Michael McGarrity

So Happy Together

What’s a seven-letter word for collaboration?

Ka-HOOTZ Theatre Company is the brainchild of playwrights Lou Clark and Clareann Despain. After graduating with MFAs from UNM, they realized that the opportunity to have their work staged locally was less than abundant. Clark wanted to create a space for the work she loved, work that was seeing the stage in other cities but was going unproduced here. “How can I make that happen?” she asked. “I'd produced over a hundred new plays in the past five or six years, so I thought if I can do it for all these other people, I can do it for me and I can do it for my friends. Help other like-minded people.” So in 2007, Ka-HOOTZ was born with the mission to “focus on new work by living writers.”
