The Panza Monologues
Co-written with Irma Mayorga
The Panza Monologues is an original solo performance piece based on women's stories about their panzas. Tú sabes - that roll of belly we all try to hide. A one-woman tour de force as told through the words of women speaking with heart stopping frankness, these stories create a quilt of poignancy, humor, and revelation. The Panza Monologues boldly places the panza front and center as a symbol that reveals the lurking truths about women's thoughts, lives, loves, abuses, and lived conditions. Additional stories also contributed by Petra A. Mata, Bárbara Renaud-González and María R. Salazar.
The Panza Monologues has been taught on college campuses across the nation including: UC Santa Barbara, UC Riverside, Cal State Fullerton, Colgate University, SUNY Oneonta, Fordham University, Wellesley College, UT-Pan Am, Cal State LA, the California Institute of the Arts, Mount Holyoke College, Northwestern University, and Fresno State University.
