The Central Lakes College Spanish Club and Resource Center for Languages and Cultures of the Americas presents “Minnecanos,” a bilingual, multicultural production by Mixed Blood Theatre, on Thursday, April 21 at noon in Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. The performance is free. In this acclaimed production, an old Chicano man turns to a lifetime’s collection of touching stories and mementos to awaken and investigate his great-grandson’s interest in the families shared history and culture. The 45-minute play offers an illumination of Mexican American history that spans the entire 20th century, highlights El Rencanche, the mass deportations of the Great Depression and the Cesar Chavez-led farm workers movement. The play is a celebration of the accomplishments, character and aspirations of Latinos in Minnesota and across the country. Mixed Blood is a multi-cultural theatre company founded in 1967 that offers several regional touring productions throughout the year. A 15-minute Q & A session follows.
