AZTEC PIRATES & THE INEQUITY OF SACRIFICE

    David Davila creates a wondrous exploration of Latinx identity from the perspectives of class, immigration, sides of the law enforcement equation, religion, spirituality, mental health, language, gender, and, yes, even fertility. To say that AZTEC PIRATES & THE INEQUITY OF SACRIFICE is sweeping and large as the history of Latinx people in the United States of America is an understatement. A marvel of a play that continues to give with each new scene and each new read. A truly breathtaking piece.

    As we continue on this journey, new questions arise, especially ones about accountability, avoiding guilt, and falling into being that big word, complicit. The story examines what side is the American side and how long can we ignore a systematic problem because it won't simply go away. Listen to the Aztec rhythms, as they hold the answer of whether we, as a people and Americans, will ever sacrifice enough.
