Boston’s Latin Quarter Welcomes Latinx Heritage Month with Comparsa and Outdoor Theater

The cultural district of Boston's Latin Quarter will kick off the celebration of Latinx Heritage Month on September 15 at the iconic Mozart Park with a troupe and play starring the Puerto Rican artistic collective Agua, Sol y Sereno, along with youth from the community. The free cultural activity will include the presentation of the play "Comer," an original piece by Agua, Sol y Sereno for the whole family, which includes live music, dance and pantomimes. In addition, the public will be able to enjoy the comparsas that have made this artistic group famous for their colorful costumes and original "cabezudos." Agua, Sol y Sereno rose to world fame last February, when their "cabezudos" co-starred in the opening of the 2023 Grammy Awards along with fellow Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny. But its trajectory includes 25 years of dynamic creations with a thematic focus grounded in cultural identity and social justice.
