Where Did We Sit on the Bus? 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 examines what it means to be Latino through the eyes of a child, turned teenager, turned adult.
Brian Quijada, a native Chicagoan, and the son of Salvadorean parents, tries to figure out where he fits in. He grew up in a contrasting melting pot watching Michael Jackson’s moves on TV while the smell of pupusas filled the air, and at school, he mingled with friends from different cultural and racial backgrounds. With nonstop laughter, “Where Did We Sit on the Bus?” attempts to answer the question, “Where do I fit in as a Latino millennial growing up in America?
