Based on plays by Sophocles and Euripides, Alfaro's ElectricidadOedipus El Rey and Mojada transplant ancient themes and problems into the barrios of Los Angeles and New York, giving voice to the concerns of the Chicanx and wider Latinx communities. The talk will examine the unique manner in which his tragedies transform Greek, Latinx, and American theatre, as plays which carry the rich and multilayered history of multiple dramatic traditions, while also channeling the fraught intricacies of the Chicanx and Latinx experience in the twenty-first century United States.
