Our Lady of the Sacred Part - Vulva Pope
by Vortex Repertory Theatre
“This is the day the Goddess has made. We don’t take shit from nobody.”
We welcome Marina DeYoe-Pedraza's reverently irreverent ceremony celebrating the feminine to The VORTEX Virtual Stage! Our Lady of the Sacred Part: Vulva Pope features object puppetry, readings from historical badass chingonas, and a full mass service. ‘Vulva Pope…’ and addresses systemic issues that womxn experience in regard to healthcare, sexism, and sex education (or the lack thereof), through the perspectives of the objects that are used/owned by womxn.
Marina DeYoe-Pedraza is an Ohio-Rican raised in the Rio Grande Valley. Marina graduated from Hofstra University with a BFA in Performance.
