The Immaculate Conception-Working Women Festival (1997)

This production, in collaboration with the Working Women Festival, is a play that explores Virgin, Mother, Whore mythology and stereotypes. Body types and image topics are questioned: What does a Virgin look like?  A Whore?  A Latina?  From where do we get these ideas? Is there a God? A Goddess? And why are all Latinas expected to know how to salsa dance?
