Back in the Day: An ‘80s House Music Dancesical – Destinos 3rd Chicago International Latino Theater Festival


Set in the height of Chicago’s street dancing and battle era of the 1980s, when juice bars ruled the underage club scene and DJs created a movement, this house music immersive dancesical follows the northside dance crew the ALLSTARS and frenemies, the CULITOS and IMPORTED TASTE, as they struggle, soar, and move through life making their own families and redefining gender norms within a community not yet ready for change. Back in the Day is written and co-directed by UTC Artistic Director Miranda González from José “Gringo” Echevarría’s memoir The Real Dance Fever: Book One.
