Women of Ciudad Juárez

January 25 - 28, 2017, 7:30 pm
By Christina Michaus | Translated by Jimmy A. Noriega | Directed by Jimmy A. Noriega

A Teatro Travieso (Troublemaker Theatre) production

Women of Ciudad Juárez uses the theatre as a space to examine, reflect on, and speak about the femicides taking place in Juárez, Mexico, where since 1993 hundreds of women and girls have been raped, tortured, and murdered. The play offers a voice and a space for the countless female victims whose murders have been reduced to contested numbers and a gross display of injustice. Showing multiple female perspectives of life in Juárez, the production speaks out against all forms of violence against the female body and psyche. In this staging of the show, four actresses take on the roles of the women, their families, and the officials investigating the murders.       The production has been on tour since 2014 and has been presented to over 6,500 people in 17 locations, including Belgium, Colombia, Canada, and across the U.S.
