2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Gabriela’s Power Street Theatre Company (PSTC) will work with Norris Square Neighborhood Project to produce Theatre en Las Parcelas, an accessible and culturally resonant outdoor theater experience in North Philadelphia. PSTC will present theater that portrays dynamic, inspirational Latina herstories of past, present, and future in order to reclaim and represent Latina women’s empowerment. The project will feature two plays written by local feminist playwrights, Las Mujeres by Erlina Ortiz and Shelter in Place by Alisha Adams. Each piece explores diverse intersections of Latinidad and womanhood while posing intergenerational questions about culture, survival, self-preservation, and strength.
