Past Cultural Shows: Themes

Our past shows are very important to us. Each one is little different, but each one is just as special. They serve to remind us of the importance of the show and how every bit of the work that goes into it, is totally worth it, always.

In honor of our past Cultural Shows, we have compiled a couple of our favorite moments for you to enjoy here.

Each year has had a theme. Have a look below to see what they were about!


“This year’s theme was Expresión… Red trains and lilac silk ties, high heels and spoken word, new age kicks and classic dips—it all fused together in a haze of energy and confidence. In a collusion of voices too often reduced to “sassy,” the OLAS show, and all of its constituent parts, took center stage with a heat and strength that felt as richly layered as Latin America itself.” -The Chicago Maroon (2014)
