Antonio Suarez

Currently, I am collaborating with writer/performer Dael Orlandersmith and choreographer Alexandra Beller on a solo play, Antonio’s Song: I was Dreaming of a Son. The play wrestles with the ideas of being a parent, child, partner, forgiveness, with a dash of race and sexuality while asking an audience to examine their own history and to reach for empathy and self love in the face of abhorrent behavior.
