LA COLINA QUE SUBIMOS
Por Amanda Gorman

El día llega cuando nos preguntamos
¿Dónde encontraremos la luz en medio de esta sombra interminable?
La pérdida que acarreamos. El mar que vadeamos.
Escapamos de la entraña de la fiera.
Hemos aprendido que la quietud no siempre significa paz
Y que las normas, las nociones de lo que es “justo”
No siempre significan justi-cia.
Y sin embargo el amanecer llega antes de lo esperado.
De alguna manera lo logramos
De alguna manera resistimos y fuimos testigos
De una nación que no se quebró
Que simplemente necesita completarse.
Nosotros, los herederos de un país y un tiempo
Donde una muchacha negra, delgada, descendiente de esclavos
Y criada por una madre soltera
Puede soñar con ser presidente
Y encontrarse recitando para el presidente.
Y sí, estamos lejos de ser prístinos, sin mancha,
Lo que significa que no estamos luchando por la Unión perfecta
Estamos luchando por una Unidad con propósito,
Por construir un país comprometido con todas las culturas,
Los colores, personalidades y la condición humana.
De forma que alzamos la mirada no hacia lo que se interpone entre nosotros ,
sino a lo que está frente a nosotros.
Obviamos lo que nos divide porque sabemos que por el futuro
Debemos apartar las diferencias.
Doblamos los brazos para poder extenderlos hacia los demás.
Para no dañar a nadie y hacer la armonía entre todos.
Que si algo diga el mundo, que diga que esta es la verdad.
Que aún si nos lamentamos, nos levantamos
Que aún si nos dolimos, no nos desesperanzamos
Que aún si nos cansamos, continuamos tratando
Que para siempre estaremos enlazados juntos
Y victoriosos.
No porque ya nunca conoceremos la derrota
Sino porque nunca más sembraremos la división.
Las Escrituras nos piden que visionemos que todos se sentarán
bajo su propio viñedo e higuera sin que nadie les haga temer.
Si hemos de ser dignos de nuestro tiempo,
la victoria no vendrá de la espada,
sino de los puentes que tendamos.
Esa es la promesa de la felicidad, la colina que alcanzaremos
Si nos atrevemos.
Porque ser americano es más que el orgullo que heredamos
Es el pasado que nos calzamos y cómo lo reparamos.
Hemos visto una fuerza dispuesta a destruir
antes que compartir nuestra nación
la resquebrajaría si así pudiera retardar la democracia
Ese esfuerzo estuvo cerca de ser exitoso.
Pero si la democracia puede temporalmente retrasarse,
Nunca puede permanentemente acabarse.
En esta verdad, en esta fe, confiamos
porque mientras nosotros miramos al futuro,
los ojos de la historia nos miran a nosotros.
Esta es la era de la justa redención.
Temimos su aproximación.
No nos sentimos preparados para ser los herederos
De hora tan terrible.
Pero dentro de ella encontramos el poder de escribir un nuevo capítulo, de ofrecernos esperanza, de reír.
Así que como una vez nos preguntamos cómo venceríamos en la catástrofe,
ahora proclamamos ¿cómo es que la catástrofe nos vencería?
No habrá marcha atrás hacia lo que fue, sino avance hacia lo que será; un país lacerado pero entero, benévolo pero decidido, fiero y libre.
No volveremos al camino andado ni aceptaremos intimidaciones que causen interrupciones porque sabemos que nuestra inmovilidad, nuestra inercia sería la herencia de la generación que viene, su futuro.
Nuestras fallas serían sus fardos.
Pero una cosa es cierta: si unimos piedad con poder y poder con deber, el amor será el legado que cambie los derechos de nuestros hijos al nacer.
Así que dejémosles a ellos un país mejor del que nos legaron a nosotros.
Con cada aliento del bronce martillado en mi pecho,
levantaremos este mundo herido hacia un mundo hermoso.
Nos levantaremos desde las doradas colinas de Occidente,
Nos levantaremos desde el Nordeste batido por el viento donde comenzó la revolución de los ancestros
Nos levantaremos desde las ciudades al lado de los lagos de los estados del Medio Oeste
Nos levantaremos desde el Sur horneado por el sol
Nos levantaremos, reconstruiremos, nos recuperaremos y reconciliaremos
Y de cada rincón de nuestra nación, de cada esquina de este nuestro país,
Este pueblo diverso y y bello se levantará maltratado y hermoso
El día llega para salir de las sombras, de las llamas, sin miedo.
El nuevo amanecer se infla como un enorme globo
mientras lo liberamos
Porque siempre hay luz si sólo tenemos tenemos suficiente valor para verla,
suficiente valor para serla.

When day comes we ask ourselves,
where can we find light in this never-ending shade?
The loss we carry,
a sea we must wade
We've braved the belly of the beast
We've learned that quiet isn't always peace
And the norms and notions
of what just is
Isn’t always just-ice
And yet the dawn is ours
before we knew it
Somehow we do it
Somehow we've weathered and witnessed
a nation that isn’t broken
but simply unfinished
We the successors of a country and a time
Where a skinny Black girl
descended from slaves and raised by a single mother
can dream of becoming president
only to find herself reciting for one
And yes we are far from polished
far from pristine
but that doesn’t mean we are
striving to form a union that is perfect
We are striving to forge a union with purpose
To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and
conditions of man
And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us
but what stands before us
We close the divide because we know, to put our future first,
we must first put our differences aside
We lay down our arms
so we can reach out our arms
to one another
We seek harm to none and harmony for all
Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true:
That even as we grieved, we grew
That even as we hurt, we hoped
That even as we tired, we tried
That we’ll forever be tied together, victorious
Not because we will never again know defeat
but because we will never again sow division
Scripture tells us to envision
that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree
And no one shall make them afraid
If we’re to live up to our own time
Then victory won’t lie in the blade
But in all the bridges we’ve made
That is the promised glade
The hill we climb
If only we dare
It's because being American is more than a pride we inherit,
it’s the past we step into
and how we repair it
We’ve seen a force that would shatter our nation
rather than share it
Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy
And this effort very nearly succeeded
But while democracy can be periodically delayed
it can never be permanently defeated
In this truth
in this faith we trust
For while we have our eyes on the future
history has its eyes on us
This is the era of just redemption
We feared at its inception
We did not feel prepared to be the heirs
of such a terrifying hour
but within it we found the power
to author a new chapter
To offer hope and laughter to ourselves
So while once we asked,
how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe?
Now we assert
How could catastrophe possibly prevail over us?
We will not march back to what was
but move to what shall be
A country that is bruised but whole,
benevolent but bold,
fierce and free
We will not be turned around
or interrupted by intimidation
because we know our inaction and inertia
will be the inheritance of the next generation
Our blunders become their burdens
But one thing is certain:
If we merge mercy with might,
and might with right,
then love becomes our legacy
and change our children’s birthright
So let us leave behind a country
better than the one we were left with
Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest,
we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one
We will rise from the gold-limbed hills of the west,
we will rise from the windswept northeast
where our forefathers first realized revolution
We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the midwestern states,
we will rise from the sunbaked south
We will rebuild, reconcile and recover
and every known nook of our nation and
every corner called our country,
our people diverse and beautiful will emerge,
battered and beautiful
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it
If only we’re brave enough to be it

El Teatro Campesino

El Teatro Campesino

The Eagle Sun has set on the horizon on this Thanksgiving Day.

It is with immense sadness that we share the incredible news that our Chicano maestro in the struggle, brother Noe Montoya, has tragically succumbed to the coronavirus.

To all of his extended family in El Teatro Campesino, bereft of a beloved fifty-year member, his shocking loss is incalculable and beyond belief. The Covid 19 pandemic has been merciless to an extreme, especially among farm workers, so it comes as no surprise that despite the risk, Noe did his utmost to alleviate the suffering of our fellow campesinos, continuing to make appearances to sing at car caravans organized to raise food for the workers. His great heart was always at the core of his humanity and commitment to our community.

But as an artist, he was the blood and bone of El Teatro, having joined the company as a teenage recruit in 1971. During the ensuing half century, he matured into our maestro of indigenous music, in addition to his many roles on stage, video and film as a vital core company actor. One of his first roles in 1972 was that of Tonatiuh, the Aztec Sun, as he majestically rose behind a pyramid in our first television special in Los Angeles. From the 1970s to 2008, he often reprised the role of Juan Diego in our biennial production of La Virgen del Tepeyac at Old Mission San Juan Bautista. His last role was just last year, before the pandemic hit, as Benito Juarez in the world premiere of “Adios Mama Carlota” at San Jose Stage.

In keeping with his artistry and wisdom with respect to our indigenous heritage, we acknowledge that Maestro Noe has now become like the Eagle Sun of our Mayan ancestors, setting on the horizon only to become the Jaguar Night Sun in his journey across the stars. It is with faith and hope in the Universal Creator that we celebrate his trajectory through the cosmos, and look forward to the inevitable sun rise again.

Ometeotl, hermano querido, descanse en paz!

Silencio. Abre el telón y una singular escenografía se deja ver sobre el tabloncillo. Unas figuras de tela sobresalen en el conjunto. Son los títeres que comienzan a contar lo cotidiano y lo trascendente, buscando siempre nuevas posibilidades escénicas, con los actores, el público, el espacio. ...
