Description

Talking While Female & Other Dangerous Acts is a fresh collection of original short stories on themes of risk and resilience, written and performed by Latina womxn across the USA. Curated by Teatro Luna West: America's All Latinx and All Women of Color Theatre Ensemble, these stunning stories are combined with original music by Maria Chavez and poetry by Gabriela Ortega in order to fully transport the listener to each individual life and journey. 

Although rooted in the incredibly diverse spectrum that is the US Latina experience, this collection of stories is crafted for anyone who has ever felt invisible, powerless, or alone. This compilation provides a platform and much needed space for the many generations of women who have been tucked away into the corners of our history, erased, and ignored and shines a light on vibrant voices of today celebrating our power to heal, transform, and rise again. From interviewing public figures as problematic as Fidel Castro, to experiencing a leaky brain and the miraculous feats of modern medicine or losing a loved one to the brutalities of Alzheimer's, these storytellers share it all. Modeling vulnerability for the listener, we are given access to somber reflections on the current administration's impact on the marginalized - from those in violent cycles of poverty to those experiencing the gentrification crisis firsthand, to a passionate call to remember the children still in cages. This collection wouldn't be complete without vital stories of incredibly heartwarming coming-out experiences and journeys abroad that uplift us and remind us of our ability to overcome anything that comes our way.

I needed this in my life

If you are a human being you need to listen to this. We need to realize that everyone is going through something and those stories need to be told, heard and felt. We have an opportunity to expand humanity for the good and this is where it starts.

A MUST FOR EVERYONE!

Stories that connect us

With themes of family, heartache, struggle, and strength, the stories in "Talking While Female" inspire, uplift, and connect. The stories are beautiful in their vulnerability and ability to make the listener feel both sorrow and hope simultaneously. In sharing their personal experiences, the storytellers have captured a larger, shared experience of this generation's Latina.

Well performed engaging stories

Many stories are performed by the respective author and, in keeping with the description, are all stories of resilience, survival, perseverance, and growth written by Latinx womxn. I personally connected to many of the themes and appreciate the breadth of stories and experiences shared.
