Special guest María Consuelo Saez-Burgos, niece and official representative of the estate of the legendary Puerto Rican poet Julia de Burgos comes to Chicago for the first time after the opening of the Julia the Burgos Park by the Bloomingdale Trail (The 606). She will be joined by Chicago-based Puerto Rican Saxophonist Roy McGrath, his Remembranzas Quartet presenting Burgos-inspired Jazz, and Y no Había Luz Theater Company, coming directly from Puerto Rico.
This SRBCC production is made possible thanks to a collaboration with Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail, Night Out in the Parks, and The Trust for Public Land.
Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center offers a yearly artistic series that celebrates Puerto Rican arts and culture, and promotes collaborations between Chicago-based artists and artists coming from the Island. Night Out in the Parks brings these carefully-curated events exploring theater, music and dance to green spaces across the city in a special partnership with Chicago’s longest-standing Latino Cultural Center.
