Shakespeare Through the Latinx Voice

(p.117) 10 Shakespeare Through the Latinx Voice
Shakespeare and Latinidad

Michelle Lopez-Rios

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter explores Latinx voices performing the plays of Shakespeare. The author discusses the vocal demands of Shakespeare’s text as well as that of many Latinx works. Specifically, she discusses the voice and text work for productions of Measure for Measure at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre and Julius Caesar and Mojada: A Mexican Medea (by Luis Alfaro) at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. She details her work with actor Alejandra Escalante and cultivating a Dominican New Yorker accent for Robert Falls’ production of Measure. At OSF, she writes of her work with actor Armando Duran and director Juliette Carrillo. She draws parallels between the vocal work demands of Shakespeare’s works and that of Latinx plays. The author concludes that Shakespearean text through the Latinx voice offers a unique connection for artists and audience.
