CazaTeatro Independent Theatre operated actively from 2006 to 2009, under the leadership of Gio López. In 2010 there began a new adventure, when a group of women with a shared dream gathered together to make it come true. That dream was animated by love of theater, and at the same time love of their Latin culture and its vast inner diversity. These women began to gather weekly under the direction of Mónica Sánchez, strengthening their work as artists and as a theater company. After evaluating various alternative names, they decided to identify the group by the name Cazateatro, but with a variant that would stress inclusiveness: thus Cazateatro Independent Theatre evolved into Cazateatro Bilingual Theatre Group.
