 CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY AND NYC'S REPERTORIO ESPAÑOL PRESENT GABRIEL GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ'S ''

 

"Hypnotizing! Poetic!" -The Village Voice

Columbus, OH - New York City's Repertorio Español makes its Columbus debut Friday, October 12, at 7:30 p.m. at The Ohio State University's Wexner Center Mershon Auditorium, when it will present famed Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez's "Crónica de una Muerte Anunciada" (Chronicle of a Death Foretold).
The production brings to life one of García Márquez's best known works that displays his brilliance. Chronicle of a Death Foretold is a murder mystery and also an exploration of human nature and the power of the collective over the individual. The recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, García Márquez is one of the leading Latin American authors of our time. The production company, Repertorio Español, includes actors with roots in Colombia, Argentina, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
Chronicle of a Death Foretold will provide a unique opportunity to enjoy a live theatrical performance in Columbus staged completely in Spanish, with an audio English translation available with special headphones, which can be requested at the time of ticket purchase. Repertorio Español was founded in 1968 and has made it its mission to bring theatre to broad audiences. The event is organized by the Hispanic/Latino community at The Ohio State University in an effort to provide diverse Latino experiences for the university community and Central Ohio.

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $2 for students, and are available now at the Wexner Center (614-292-3535) and Ticketmaster (614-431-3600).

AFTER PARTY 

Following the performance, the Columbus Dispatch's Spanish publication, Fronteras de la Noticia, will be hosting their second anniversary party in the neighboring Wexner Center. Live music by Son del Caribe and a cash bar will be available. Admission is free.

Community : Miguel Alemany featured in a book "¡Ay Mijo! Why Do You Want To Be An Engineer?"
Posted by admin on 2007/9/16 16:50:00 (4481 reads)

 

Latinos are the fastest growing population group in the United States but comprise only 3 percent of the nation’s scientists and engineers. That’s according to the National Center for Education Statistics and it is not good news, given a growing need for U.S. engineering and other math and science expertise and innovation in the increasingly competitive global marketplace.   

To address the need for more Hispanics in engineering, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) is endorsing the new book ¡Ay Mijo! Why Do You Want To Be An Engineer? as a way to get the word out to young people about the benefits of pursuing a career in the field. You can buy the book from Amazon (click here...)

Ay Mijo (which means “my son” in Spanish) tells the stories of 12 Hispanic men who overcame challenges to become successful engineers today. One of these 12 featured engineers is Miguel Alemany from P&G

Cincinnati will be a proud host of the 2010 National Conference of SHPE, thanks to Miguel who was the driving force behind the effort to bring the SHPE Conference to our city,  the same way as he helped in bringing the 2006 NSHMBA National Conference to Cincinnati.

We would like to congratulate Miguel on this recognition, and thank him for all the support he provides to SHPE and NSHMBA!!!!

As the source for quality Hispanic engineers and technical talent, SHPE is helping promote Ay Mijo to increase awareness among Hispanic students about the opportunities found in engineering and the scholarships and other resources available to them. A portion of proceeds from the sale of Ay Mijo will benefit the scholarship program of the Advancing Hispanic Excellence in Technology, Engineering, Math and Science (AHETEMS) Foundation of SHPE.

“Many studies have shown what we at SHPE see all too often: not enough Hispanic men are excelling in or graduating from high school or applying to college,” said Manuel Hernandez, vice president of SHPE’s national board of directors, chairman of AHETEMS and one of the engineers profiled in Ay Mijo. “By participating in the release of Ay Mijo, we can introduce young men to role models who have realized their dreams through an education and career in engineering. The true stories of our own people can be the very best motivation toward success and personal satisfaction in life, and I’m honored that my own story is in this book,” Hernandez said.
