Hispanic Heritage Month

TCC events and activities mark Hispanic Heritage Month 2018

“Hispanics: One Endless Voice to Enhance Our Traditions” is the national theme for 2018's Hispanic Heritage Month, recognizing the traditions, history and culture of Hispanic Americans in the Hampton Roads community and nationwide. TCC's Intercultural Learning Center echoes that theme with its own message of “Changing America: The Culture of Identities.” 

Keynote Program: On the Scene with Hispanic Theater

Thursday, September 27
5:30 p.m.
TCC Roper Theater, 340 Granby St, Norfolk, VA 

Gabriela TolettiOn the Scene with Hispanic Theater is an evening of reflection, theater and tango music.

Dr. Gabriela Christie Toletti, playwright Dino Armas, Dr. Juan Raúl Ferreira, and other distinguished guests will present the book On the Scene with Migration and Dictatorship: An Interdisciplinary Approach to the Work of Uruguayan Playwright Dino Armas. A discussion of the book’s main topics and issues, followed by a performance of selected tangos and scenes from Armas’ plays, will take place at the event. A book signing and reception will follow the event. 

Authored and compiled by Dr. Gabriela Christie Toletti, this book includes several works addressing issues of migration and dictatorship from recognized Uruguayan Author Dino Armas, and interpretive essays written by authors who specialize in Latin American literature, theater, psychology, and history.

Examining this group of texts is a way to enter Armas’ world to inquire into Hispanic and universal human conflicts. This book constitutes a shared stage of reflection, analysis, collaboration, and affection towards the great Dino Armas, Hispanic culture, and a universal multicultural heritage.

The event is free and open to the public.
