Victor I. Cazares is a non-binary Poz Queer Indigenous Mexican Artist (enby PQIMA for short) who has had stints at Yale, Brown and other less prestigious centers of rehabilitation. Like any border child, they were born twice: once in El Paso, Texas and another in San Lorenzo, Chihuahua. During the pandemic, Victor debuted virtually at Carnegie Hall as part of the Voices of Hope Festival in partnership with National Queer Theater and The LGBT Center.
They also teach a tuition-free class for emerging immigrant playwrights as part of PEN America’s DREAMing Out Loud program. Plays include: “american (tele)visions” and “Pinching Pennies with Penny Marshall” (NYTW); “Ramses contra los monstruos,” “We Were Eight Years in Powder” and “«when we write with ashes»” (NQT and Lincoln Center Restart Stages). Victor is currently the Tow Playwright-in-Residence at New York Theatre Workshop.
