Our Quarterly Teatro Latino @RILA Pláticas were initiated in 2016 and co-facilitated by RILA and Trinity Repertory Company. With the success of Teatro en El Verano and as our list of Latinx actors grew, Orlando Hernández, Performing Arts Programs Coordinator at RILA, began convening weekly script readings while still leading the monthly pláticas.
Today, Orlando is joined by Tatyana-Marie Carlo and together, they are re-imagning the pláticas by adding a monthly series of Latinx Tech Hacks — workshops, discussions and informal conversations in a bilingual format geared specifically for Latinx playwrights, actors and theater makers.

        In this beginner's workshop, we will engage with the simple and easy-to-use tools most phones already have in order to elevate your photography skills. These days, phone cameras have really strong capabilities that all you really need to create a striking photo is a little knowledge, and a drive for creativity. In our time together, we will be playing with our phones camera and leave with a new eye for photography in every image we see.
