I had an opportunity to visit the ID Studio Theater this Fall in Mott Haven. I briefly met the Artistic Director, German Jaramillo, who gave me a short tour of the theater, telling me that ID Studio Theater had moved into its new home to its new home at 311 East 140th Street in Mott Haven in the Fall of 2016.

German said he'd been working on renovating the ID Studio Theater new home ever since he'd arrived, to make it capable of providing rehearsal studio and performance space to work on new projects, community space and two studio apartments for visiting and affiliated performers. I had the opportunity to view the community space and the rehearsal space which are shown in the photos at right below. In the photo at right is the outside of ID Studio Theater in Mott Haven.

ID Studio Theater - The Performing Arts in Mott Haven Bronx

German told me that ID Studio Theater has been in existence for a long time - since 2001 in fact - at the dawn of the 21st century. The goal of the non-profit performing arts organization is to empower primarily poor, immigrant Latino communities through cultural expression and original works.

The night I visited ID Studio Theater, they were hosting a performance of Pedro Infante. Pedro Infante is a theatrical production by Toby Campion and directed by German Jaramillo that was a part of the Celebrate Mexico Now Festival. The Celebrate Mexico Now is a city-wide celebration of contemporary Mexican art and culture that is now in its 14th year.

 

Celebrate Mexico Now Festival

I had the opportunity to meet Claudia Norman, the Director and Founder of the Celebrate Mexico Now Festival. Shetold me that the festival was a celebration of Mexican culture including music, literature, cuisine, visual arts, film and theater. Every year since 2004 Claudia has organized the event with the help of people throughout four of the five boroughs,including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. The event was an eight day affair [this year October 14 - 22].

 

Anyhow, there was a small crowd that had gathered on the lower level of ID Studio Theater in their community space where food and beverages were being served. People had come from the other id studio theater mott haven neighborhood bronx nyc latin theater bronx nycboroughs to view the performance of Pedro Infante. The storyline of Pedro Infante is about a grandmother who is living here taking care of her granddaughter because her daughter and husband work. She begins to yearn to return to the home country of Mexico. And then it happens ...

ID Studo Theater opened with this performance and they've been open ever since. You can check out their website for film showings, rehearsal space info and public performances at www.idstudiotheater.com and there's also a web presence on www.artslatinony.org that I found informative.
