Gabriela Sanchez, founder and Executive Producer of Power Street Theatre Company, joined the First Person Arts creative team this year when she directed the popular Commonspace LIVE: Looking Class performance at WHYY and Queer Bodies, a collaboration with the LGBT Affairs Office in City Hall. Gabriela is masterful at creating devised theater that is passionate and pushes for social change. Her Festival directorial debut Pa’lante is no different. This devised work asks a diverse representation of the Latinx community to share their stories of living the Latinx experience in these United States of America. Influenced by the five senses, cultural roots, and resilience, each storyteller explores traditions and legacies.

About First Person Arts Festival

The 2018 First Person Arts Festival is focused on overcoming. Dive into real, personal experiences that include: the challenges of life after incarceration, coming out (again and again and again), gathering the pieces and rebuilding your life after divorce, and many more stories of strength, determination, and the power of the human will. Returning for 2018: First Person Arts workshops that will help guide you in unleashing and harnessing the power of YOUR voice.
