The Cucuy Project: Workshop Performance & Discussion
   Jesus Valles and Gricelda Silva play undocumented Latin American siblings living in Austin in the apartment of their aunt (Lori Navarrete). In the midst of sweeping ICE raids, the older brother turns to the Latino tradition of telling terrifying stories to children (to make them behave) to train his little sister on tactics to avoid immigration agents. (Stay hidden. Don't speak. Don't resist.) Left alone, the siblings apply everything they know about escaping the boogeymen of their imaginations to avoid the very real threat of ICE agents who intend to tear their family apart.
   The cast is supported by a team of puppeteer/ actors (Indigo Rael, Marina DeYoe-Pedraza, and Connor Hopkins) who bring terrifying creatures from Latino storytelling tradition to life in this horror/ suspense live performance.
    The Cucuy Project is a bilingual work devised by the director (Caroline Reck) and the cast.
Glass Half Full Theatre is working with folklorist Emily Socolov and various local groups that support the rights of immigrants and detainees.
The design team for this workshop includes K. Eliot Haynes, Rachel Atkinson, & Caroline Reck. Stage Management by Zac Crofford.

    The final production will open in September 2019 as the culmination of our Residency at the Dougherty Arts Center.
