A multigenerational Boricua HERstory of patriarchy and colonization survival.

About this Event:
The theater piece tells the story of five Puerto Rican women, on the island, from the same family lineage, dramatizing their intergenerational struggles and experiences of survival in a colonized and patriarchal society within different historical eras. Abuelita Juana’s spirit, guides us through these various time periods, teaching us about the importance of preserving heritage, the strength of women, and the sacrifices that our ancestors made for us.

The piece is predominantly performed in English accompanied by bits in Spanish. Ticket sales will go towards the ReclaimPR fundraiser that focuses on supporting entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico.
