Solving for X (2017)

Written & Directed by Milta Ortiz

in collaboration with the Working Classroom Theater Ensemble
and Tectonic Theater Project

Presented as a part of the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Siembra Latino Theatre festival, Solving for X is a new bilingual play exploring educational equity, inspired by interviews, research and theatrical experimentation.

The new play is the culmination of a year-long project where student actors have been paid to train with guest artists and interview educational stakeholders in the Albuquerque community in order to bring together diverse community voices and appreciate both what divides us and connects us together.

What are the realities we must face in order to understand the opportunity gap? What can we do to make the education system more equitable? How can this production influence future education policy? These questions are at the core of our investigation in our latest theater project.
