Show summary 
Juracán: The Jíbaro and his Three Sons traces the history of Puerto Rico, its people and the many visitors who have claimed the island as their own.

This action-packed solo show is a bilingual, family-friendly adventure with music, mask and audience participation. The history of the island from the Taíno kingdoms to the vulture capitalists aiming to turn Old San Juan into a future crypto-utopia for bitcoin billionaires is presented using pieces of debris left over from Hurricane María as the costumes, props and locations.

This piece is performed in the style of traditional street theater – which engages the audience and uses everyday objects to enhance the magic of the characters. 

In total, Vazquez plays over 14 characters during the show.
