PRESS AND REVIEWS

"While the four actors never endanger themselves physically, their vulnerability to the knives enforces a sense of risk – the threat of theatrical realism’s collapse into the reality of their bodies as penetrable, violable flesh. The cast means for us to take this risk, to experience the volatility of precarity with them."

ON THE BLEEDING EDGE OF THE REAL: WOMEN OF CIUDAD JUÁREZ (published in Women and Performance)

"Joto is a comedy that has heart, guts, and a message. The political and social aspects of the show are sure to intrigue and instigate audiences into new ways of thinking about immigration, queer rights, and allyship"

J IS FOR JOTO (published in Howlround Theatre Commons)

"Women of Ciudad Juarez was not an enjoyable production - it's not supposed to be. By the time the lights went down after the performance, the stage was destroyed and messy- so too was the audience. We had been made aware of our influence and asked to affect a change."

WOMEN OF CIUDAD JUÁREZ (published in Ecumenica Journal) 

"Más allá de la belleza del montaje, es impresionante lo que logra hacer este grupo de teatro con recursos tan sencillos frente a un texto y un tema tan complejo. Es también encomiable el esfuerzo de la compañía por promover la acción política y ciudadana del espectador, pues luego de cada función las actrices y el director llevan a cabo una charla con el público en la que dialogan sobre las maneras en que se puede hacer algo como ciudadanos globales."
