Hembras de Pluma—“feathered women,” or “women wielding the pen”—is a collective of women artists who have come together to present personal stories of childhood, growing older, loss, love, grief and joy, told as monologues and short plays, and written and performed to honor their histories, their ancestors, their families, and themselves.
Their new ensemble piece is presented in partnership with the NHCC as part of the Center’s Siembra: Latino Theatre Season, as well as its annual celebration of Women’s History Month. Directed by Mónica Sánchez, Rise: An Offering weaves movement, personal stories, song, and imagery to address generations of resilience, triumph, pain, and navigating the world as women.
“Hembras de Pluma is a collective of Indigenous and Women of Color who share our stories as celebration, healing, and creating power in storytelling. Speaking our truth and sharing our stories on the stage are a form of empowerment, engagement with our communities and supporting each other.” The Hembras de Pluma collective is Ozawa Bineshi Albert, Michelle Estrada Allred, Maria Teresa Herrera, Michelle Otero, Valli Marie Rivera, Monica T. Rodriguez, Sylvia Sarmiento, and Andrea J. Serrano.
