La Historia de Teatro Audaz – Our Story

“Vitality in art is a result of articulation, energy and differentiation. All great art is differentiated art. It is more comfortable to feel similarities, yet we need to accept the terror of differences in order to create vital art.” - Anne Bogart, Viewpoints* 

Logotipo de Teatro Audaz San Antonio – Our Logo

As a theatre dedicated to Latinx stories we searched for a logo that would represent the fearless, bold, audacious theatre we were interested in making. Telling a story through theatre is a work of the whole being, here and now. To the ancient Maya, the day sign Caban literally meant “earth” and represented the vital force within the earth itself (earth’s rhythm) also within the human body (heart rhythm).

Caban also represented the movement or motion of the earth as in the form of an earthquake or the surge of heart blood in the human body. Audaz is translated in English as audacity or audacious, which reminded us of an earthquake that moves you, wakes you. Teatro Audaz is the Caban in San Antonio.
