Comments by the Designer

With the Shoe production, I learned more about Latinx culture and some of the social-economic trends in the United States of America. For instance, I shopped at discount stores like Walmart or Target for the production, as these stores tend to be common shopping places of the Latinx demographic due to their reasonable pricing. Also, I used a few colorful prints and patterns seen typically in Latinx cultural garments as well as incorporating a religious pendant for Marta’s mom as religion is a big part of the culture. Doing research is critical in understanding different cultures and talking with the playwright in the new play process was a great help to understand the Latinx world.
