February Feature: Ruth on the Rocks

Ruth Guerra is Ruth on the Rocks at the February 2010 Proyecto Latina.

This month Proyecto Latina is thrilled to present writer/performer Ruth Guerra. She will be doing a reading/performance called Ruth On The Rocks that explores the act of dating and casual encounters from the point of view of several women’s ideal image of what it should be.

Arrive early to grab a chair, settle-in, and sign up to share some of your work and drop a friendly chisme in the Chisme box.

Ruth Guerra hails from the south side of Chicago, the Back of the Yards neighborhood where eating tacos de la Internacional, cruisin’ to house music, and the ability to hinder the stockyards’ stench are just some of the wonderful attributes that contribute to her personality. As a kid, she watched shows like El Palomo, Chiquilladas and Kids Incorporated, encouraging her to create and perform her own sketches and routines for friends and family in her parents’ garage. Her love for the windy city, took her to Second City where she learned the art of improvisational theater and performed with several ensembles. Shortly after, she discovered a new found love in storytelling and moved on to do theater. Her theatrical debut was in 2005 with Teatro Americano and since has been performing with different groups in the city. Ruth recently embarked on a memoir writing journey where she sticks to her roots as she documents her life experiences in Chicago.
