Proyecto Latina August – Natalie Marlena Goodnow

Well the lazy days of August are here and so is the next Proyecto Latina Reading Series!

Natalie will be performing an excerpt from her solo play of Mud Offerings about a Chicanita that has it out with the Virgen de Guadalupe unraveling the culturally complicated truths, lies and mythologies of women’s spirituality and sexuality in contexts of violence and betrayal.

Natalie Marlena Goodnow is a nationally recognized teatrista, teaching artist, and cultural activist from Austin, Texas. She writes, performs, and directs; she’s been practicing some combination of those forms for seventeen years, and started teaching about and through them 8 years ago. She specializes in the creation of original works for the stage, as a solo performer and in collaboration with other performers and playwrights, both youth and adults.
