Nine-year-old Bee Quijada sits in a suburban classroom. During a history lesson on Rosa Parks, she asks, “Where did Latinos sit on the bus?”
What follows is a theatrical mixtape of Bee’s life. It’s a one-person show that immerses the audience in elaborate, layered soundscapes by fusing Latin rhythms, hip-hop, and spoken word poetry. And it’s all made, in-person, in real time, through the magic of live music and storytelling.
Where Did We Sit on the Bus? captures both the innocence of youth and the pressures that come with being the child of immigrants. It asks, “What is my place? Where do I fit in?” It builds from the ground up, one step at a time, taking audiences on a soulful musical journey as its hero finds hope and meaning through art.
