In 2001, LPB offered a call for emerging producers to create a one minute interstitial that showcased or represented the Latino community for general audiences. Ten projects were selected ranging from animation to biographies. Many of these producers have moved forward in their careers and are NOW producing nationally for public and commercial television. In 2009, the interstitials are now offered online.
This interstitial is an introduction to “Las Carpas” – Mexican Tent Shows including a brief history and its influence on present day theater. The exhibit of Las Carpas at the Hertzberg Circus Museum in San Antonio, Texas, serves as the backdrop.
