EMAV 10 Bites: Angel Mendoza, Actor

In every neighborhood, there is someone who makes the Arts a part of their life, and our community. You'd be surprised to discover how many different people use the arts to improve the quality of life in our hometown. EAT MORE ART! VEGAS will feature them regularly in our series "10 Bites."

What kinds of art do you enjoy, create, or perform in?

Actor. Currently playing Juror 6 in 12 ANGRY MEN with Poor Richard's Players at The Arts Factory.

Why do you do it?

I am a "people" person. When I research a character and figure out what it will be like, I feel like I connect with other human beings and society a little more. I find a few things here and there as in what makes us tick and I feel it gives me a better understanding on why we act the way we do.

What’s your favorite production/performance experience so far?

I love them all for different reasons but I have to say that my favorite is always the Next one. The process is a challenge and a great learning experience. Not only do I get to develop a character but I get to do it with other Actors Directors, Production Crews... And we bring this idea, this moment, this story to Life! We get to take the audience on a journey and that is a wonderful experience.
