Show Us Your Títeres: New Latinx Puppetry

Glass Half Full Theatre: Puppetry of Objects & Ideaspresents Show Us Your Titeres: New Latinx Puppetry featuring “Our Lady of the Sacred Part” by Marina DeYoe-Pedraza
"Our Lady of the Sacred Part" was written by Marina DeYoe-Pedraza last fall for Austin Puppet Incident (an annual puppetry festival here in Austin). She made a joke in rehearsal about her bruja powers to get women onto her menstruation cycle, her housemate pitched it to Glass Half Full Theatre, and now there is a play! "Our Lady of the Sacred Part" explores feminism through the perspectives of objects that women use or own. These objects unknown to us have emulated the Catholic church, and created a whole religion around the vulvas they serve. Welcome to the Church of Our Lady of the Sacred Part, please participate to the best that you are able.
Marina DeYoe-Pedraza is an Ohio-Rican raised in the Rio Grande Valley. Marina graduated from Hofstra University with a BFA in Performance.
