Mercury III project

Jacinta’s Magical Traveling Theatre; Chapter I: Dreams on the Bridge

In Development

by Blanca Forzán

Our multicultural story will follow Jacinta’s journey as a young girl starting on the

Mexican border and then visiting the landmarks, culture, and cities of the United States of America. The first city Jacinta will visit is Portland; the city of Roses, bridges, rain, and wonders.

Ultimately, Jacinta, and the traveling case filled with puppet scenery and props will go to the next city/theatre company for their local artists to receive it and adapt the original script- changing landmarks, according to each city that hosts her story. This project will allow artists to collaborate long-distance to preserve the story to become a legend and eventually transform it into myth. Jacinta is more than a little girl, she represents the tourists, dreamers, immigrants seeking experience for a better life in the land of opportunities surrounded by the beauty of each city. 

Jacinta’s traveling case allows the talent to hold a unique script’s skeleton and adapt the storyline based on each new location’s traditions, culture, and laws, making Jacinta an experienced traveler full of experiences and priceless memories.
