| The Latino Expermental Fantastic Theater is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit bilingual company originally founded in 1994 to strengthen and develop artistic, social and cultural awareness of Latinos in New York City. |
Acknowledging that the Latino issues are co-dependent of the larger interaccion of the different ethnic groups that make up the vast spectrum of the people living in this melting pot of a city, we organically morphed into a company of Latinos (not just "for" latinos), dedicated to producing and presenting artistic works of excellence and merit to an ethnically, culturally and multi-generational diverse audience from the five boroughs that is representative of the nation's cultural tapestry.

And, printing as little programs as needed by our actors and theater professionals to generate credentials for their participation in our productions. Our goal is to eliminate the use of paper completely for the year of 2009.
The F.E.L.T vission is to become a channel for every voice that needs to be heard in order to create a more harmonious and peaceful interaccion between the residents of New Yokr City, to create a healthy conversation about our differences and similarities which would hopefully resonnate across the world. And, to become a sustainable theater company that supports the enviroment which supports all of us.
