Where Did We Sit on the Bus? directed by Chay Yew, is an electric one-man show pulsing with Latin rhythms, rap, hip-hop, spoken word and live looping. During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latino boy raises his hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” and his teacher can’t answer the question. This thrilling autobiographical production, written and performed by Brian Quijada, a native Chicagoan, and the son of Salvadorean parents, examines what it means to be Latino through the eyes of a child, turned teenager, turned adult.
