Intercultural Reflections: A Festival of the Arts is an expression of spoken word, poetry, and drama.


In celebration of Teatro Espejo’s 47 year in community, and in association with The Macbeth Project, Philippine National Day Association, & Ma Series Arts with support from The California Arts Council, we present “Intercultural Reflections: A Festival of the Arts” focusing on the power of the word and celebrating multilingual, bicultural, aesthetics centering and honoring lived experience and contemporary narratives of BIPOC Sacramento community-based artist.

Live performances include spoken word, recited poetry, and theatre! This event features celebrated diverse talents from Northern California also integrating the audience through observation, call and response and post-performance dialogue. We focus on work that is culturally relevant, speaks of diversity, empowers its audience through social justice, and/or embraces multiculturalism embracing their intercultural pride and love.


Special Events at the Festival:

Short Film Premiere @ 7pm each day:

Sacramento premier screening of internationally acclaimed choreographer Bernard Brown, The Weight of Sugar, filmed on location at a renovated historic mill. Bernard Brown/bbmoves’ latest short film uses the lens of sugar to illuminate some of the lasting effects of colonialism on women of color. With support from a strong community, a young black woman guides us toward ascension, releasing the vestiges of oppression scattered. Directed by Jingqiu Guan.

Welcome to The MacBeth Project

Theater By The People For The People

During the hight of the Covid -19 Pandemic, The MacBeth Project began presenting short versions of some of Shakespeare's most beloved classics...with a twist!

sHort sHakes: Rebuilt

Incorporating our love of Afro-Futurism, which honors the African Diaspora bridging the past, present, and possible futures, we are re-building and re-imagining the possibilities of Shakespeare. The MacBeth Project was built out of a community outcry for more African American representation in the classical theater arts.

Our sHort sHakes: Rebuilt program is designed to give free access to this work in perpetuity.
