PAAH and ALPA welcome Eliud Garcia Kauffman '93 in the world premiere of Torera.

Bullfighting in Yucatán, Mexico is a world nearly exclusive to men - yet for Elena Ramírez, it is her life's ambition. With the help of her best friend, a matador's son, Elena begins secretly training to compete with the greatest. But when she discovers that her seemingly inherent talent can beat even the most accomplished toreros, this young woman must choose between accepting society's limits or breaking boundaries.

Torera is a world premiere play written by a stunning new voice in the American theatre, Monet Hurst-Mendoza. It tells a poignant story about becoming your truest self by proudly stepping into the ring. The play was developed in the 2022 Alley All New Festival.

Location:  Neuhaus Stage, Alley Theatre, 614 Texas Ave., 77002

About Eliud - Eliud is originally from Mexico's industrial capital of Monterrey, Mexico but grew up in South Texas. His nickname is Ludo. He is proud of his Mexican roots and South Texas upbringing. His last name came from his great grandfather who emigrated to Mexico from Germany. Eliud navigates easily between Spanish and English and thinks food is best when accompanied by a serrano pepper.

Eliud attended Princeton University, the first in his family to graduate college. He then completed the Acting Conservatory at T. Schreiber Studio in New York. He has had the privilege of working with Oscar winners Robert De Niro, Patricia Arquette, and Julianne Moore and other respected actors like Steve Buscemi and Edgar Ramirez.
