What does the Latinx identity mean in the UK?
An actor from South America comes to London and very quickly realises he’ll mostly be hired to play exotic characters, so he adapts. He moves, speaks and writes like a Latinx person should. And he starts getting hired. What lies behind the facade? What does his real accent sound like? Does he even know anymore? Who is the adoption of the Latinx label more helpful for? How does that label interact with the white, BAME, queer labels, or even the my-RP-accent-is-actually-flawless label?
Playing Latinx is a one human show exploring these questions. Merging spoken word poetry, stand-up comedy and music, Guido will take us through the journey of constructing a wholly new identity whilst figuring out his place in the UK theatre scene.
