Ratas de Dos Patas is fundraising to create an immersive Día de Los Muertos 2021 event that will honor the holiday through ritual and comedy as well provide an incredible audience experience filled with laughter & joy.
¡GRACIAS NUESTRA GENTE! We will do you proud! Let’s keep these donations rolling in! Can y’all help us hit $7,000 by Sunday?! Vamos!
Thank you so much for helping us reach our original $5K goal! We have increased our goal to $10,000 so we can involve more talented Latine artists and creators in this project!
We are Ratas de Dos Patas, four dynamic bi-lingual Latina comedy artists who bring the funny and the fierce. Our goal is to empower our communities through artistic happenings that celebrate tradition, uplift underrepresented voices, and serves comedy from a culturally rooted perspective. Over the past few years, we have traveled around the country doing shows and workshops spreading our message of comedy, cultura, and corazón.
In 2018 and 2019, we created sold out Día de los Muertos theatrical experiences that captured the essence of the holiday by inviting audience members to revisit their dearly departed through heartwarming comedy.The event is centered in audience members voluntarily sharing memories of someone they’ve lost, then the cast of Ratas de Dos Patas performs an improvised set to honor that person’s spirit. What we like to call art as a ceremonial offering. The experience results in joyful laughter and happy tears as people get to feel what honoring a loved one through Día de los Muertos is truly like.
We created our first short film in 2020 honoring the holiday of Día de Los Muertos through ritual and fun historical characters.
This year, we want to get back on stage and invite our audience to be a part of an immersive Día de Los Muertos experience that will include a show performed by Ratas de Dos Patas and create an out of this world event that will leave our audience full laughter and awe.
The post will be this:
Thank you so much for helping us reach our $5K goal. We’re humbled and eternally grateful for your kindness and your support.
Our mission at Ratas De Dos Patas is to create arte pa’ la cultura, so your donations will be used to cover production costs to make this a Día de Los Muertos celebration worthy of our ancestors who will be paying us a visit in November. The $5K will be used for props, costumes, marketing, and ofrenda materials.
Ratas de Dos Patas is also committed to supporting the Latine community and amplifying the voices of our people. This is why we decided to extend our fundraising goal to $10K so we can involve more talented Latine artists and creators in this project. Your generosity will help us:
• Hear the tunes of a wonderful Latina musician
• Work with a Latine set designer to make our stage colorful and beautiful
• Hire a Latina makeup artist to create authentic calavera faces
• Have a Latina pastry chef bake the most delicious treats for you all
Please help us reach our goal by September 15, 2021. Any support that you can give us will go a long way in making Latine voices shine during one of the most important holidays for our gente.
