Su Teatro Executive Artistic Director Tony Garcia grew up on the Westside, Denver’s first and oldest neighborhood. For a century, this area was home to a community of 300 families that were ultimately displaced in the late 1960s to make room for the three colleges that make up the Auraria Higher Education Center. The campus gave rise to Su Teatro, a proudly political theater that has moved the stories, songs and tradition of Denver’s Chicano community from the margins to the mainstage for the past five decades.
