The VORTEX presents Mas Cara
Krysta Gonzales’ Más Cara uses language, movement, and visual art to explore the complexities and contradictions of Latina womanhood. Isabel is trapped in a bad marriage, held there by a young daughter and memories of better days, but never fear: her comadres are here, on earth as they are in heaven.
The goddesses Coatlicue and Tonantzin (don’t call her La Virgen of Guadalupe, she’s over that) will take on Dios himself in her name, with La Llorona waiting in the wings to give advice on how to get some “me time.” Together, they interweave the archetypes that have shaped the lives of Latinas for centuries into a vision that one woman will share with her daughters and all the women who come after.
This will be a reading of the new play by Gonzales.
