Featuring exciting and provocative new essays by leading and emerging scholars in Canada and the US, this foundational collection begins a conversation about Latina/o theatre and performance in Canada. The essays query the contours and characteristics of latinidad in Canada's performance spaces within a complex network of hemispheric relations and transnational migrations. While the discipline has witnessed a "hemispheric turn" in the study of theatre and performance in the Americas, Canada has had limited inclusion in this body of scholarship. In their examinations of the groundbreaking work of companies and artists such as Alberto Kurapel, Guillermo Verdecchia, Carmen Aguirre, Aluna Theatre, and PUENTE Theatre, these essays invite us to think more inclusively about the hemisphere and the plurality of the Americas that lie beyond US borders. Contributors include: Natalie Alvarez, Alicia Arrizón, Hugh Hazelton, Ric Knowles, Martha Nandorfy, Jimena Ortuzar, Jeannine M. Pitas, Pablo A. Ramirez, Jessica Riley, Ramón H. Rivera-Servera, Tamara Underiner, and Guillermo Verdecchia.
