Loco7 reimagines this classic text, with puppets, dance and music to show the audience that no dream is too impossible to obtain and that with hope and heart you can conquer fear.
Don Quixote and his friend Sancho Panza travel the five boroughs of New York City on a quest to save the world from evil forces and protect Lady Liberty. The audience follows Don Quixote as he explores New York City in his quest for love, honor, liberty and justice for all.
Don Quixote Takes New York is suitable for all ages 4 and up.
June 17, 2020 Crossroads at Judson Memorial Church
A Shared Evening of Work-In-Progress
Wednesday at 8pm
Lunch with Sonia will be a dance puppet theatre piece, inspired by Restrepo’s true-life experience with his Aunt Sonia, a woman who decided to end her life with dignity after a long illness at the age of 72. The show will use puppets, live actors, music, video and physical theatre to deal with the themes of life, love and loss.
Conversations about assisted dying bring up controversial and emotionally fraught issues: morality, religion, politics, and faith. With this piece Loco7 hopes to acknowledge the incredible intimacy and the very personal nature of dying as the final event of living a self-actualized, individual human life and to move the dialogue from the philosophical arena to the realm of personal experience and stories related to the topic of Death with Dignity.
Generously supported in part with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, The Jim Henson Foundation and Individual Donors.

The Adventures of Seucy and Boto, volume 1, is now finished and ready for distribution. After working on our children’s series The Adventires of Seucy and Boto, we decided to make a book version. We were lucky to have received a residency on Governors Island through Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space. This 5 month residency allowed us to make all the illustrations and write the story. We hope to find a publisher soon…keep you posted!
