In Hit the Lights! Theater Co.’s upcoming workshop of shadows and music, ISLA (pronounced eese-luh,) we will explore the harsh realities of political refugees, the difficulties of starting over, the love of family and the spirit of female brawn. Inspired by documentary theater, Hayao Miyazaki, and the original poetry and songs of Maria De Lourdes Blain (a political refugee who escaped Cuba with her sisters in the ‘69 freedom flights to the United States), Hit the Lights! presents a magical world not so different from our own.
