2 MIN READ – There are many ways you can honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which takes place on September 15 through October 15. Here are a few ways you can support and uplift Hispanic arts & culture in the Loop!
This September the Goodman Theatre partners with the Chicago Latino Theater Alliance to showcase masked luchadores representing Aztec gods vie for domination in Lucha Teotl—a no-holds-barred, 90-minute thrill ride about family, honor, tradition and redemption, written and directed by Christopher Llewyn Ramirez and Jeff Colangelo. A full-sized professional wrestling ring and a 15-foot-high Aztec calendar set the stage for the heart-pumping action, transforming the Goodman’s 350-seat flexible Owen Theatre into an immersive space that encourages audience participation. Conceived by Prism Movement Theatre and produced in partnership with Chicago Latino Theatre Alliance (CLATA) as part of the 2023 Destinos Festival, Lucha Teotl runs from September 29 – October 29, 2023 in the 350-seat Owen Theatre.

In celebration of Latinx History Month, Harold Washington Library invites you in the month of September to make a unique traditional weaving “God’s Eye” craft that originated from Mexico. Find the full schedule for these arts and crafts sessions and more details here. These "God's Eye" weaving workshops are best suitable for adults, but Harold Washington Library also has some fun planned for teens for Hispanic Heritage Month. On September 23, teens are welcomed to join Latin Street at YOUmedia to learn some Bachata basics. Bachata is a style of dance with roots in the Dominican Republic and now danced all around the world. Learn more about this free teen dance workshop here.
