An En Garde Arts Production / A New York Times Critic's Pick!

Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes) is an immersive theatrical production of live performance music and dance which brings the stories of undocumented immigrants from Latin America to life. On the eve of city-wide ICE raids, a group of immigrants gather in an undisclosed community center in NYC for a fandango. As fear encroaches — fear for family left behind in their home countries, fear for loved ones in the middle of their dangerous journey to New York, fear of leaving the sanctuary of the community center simply just get a bag of ice — a sense of camaraderie builds between the participants. Strangers become friends, friends become family, and the fandango plays on.

"immigrant communities and audiences who don’t always go to the theater...come to realize there are maladies that can only be healed by a guitar."  
-Jose Solis, The New York Times

“when they launch into Sinuhé Padilla's gorgeous Spanish-language folk numbers, the show sings in every sense. English translations are offered on a pair of elevated screens, but you don't need the words to understand their longing, sadness, joy and love.”  -Time Out

En Garde Arts
produces bold theatre experiences that reach across artistic, physical and social boundaries, illuminating nuanced perspectives and unspoken truths behind the salient issues of our time.
