Let's see a theatre play in Spanish - Los Monologos de la Vagina

 

"En la década de los 90s la actriz y dramaturga Eve Ensler notó que las mujeres hablaban acerca de sus cuerpos de una manera curiosa, y creía que era un reflejo de cómo se sentían sobre sí mismas y su género. Con la intención de celebrar la femeneidad y crear conciencia en contra de la violencia hacia la mujer, Ensler se inspiró para escribir una serie de ensayos sobre aspectos de la mujer, sus cuerpos y el lenguaje que ellas solían usar para referirse a sus partes íntimas, la cual adaptó para el escenario llamándolo “Los Monólogos de la Vagina.”

La estrenó en un pequeño teatro cerca de Broadway, pronto se convirtió en un éxito en ciudad de Nueva York que se extendió por todo el mundo, convirtiéndose en un fenómeno internacional en diferentes idiomas. Basándose en experiencias personales y las de mujeres que ella entrevistó, la autora crea un retrato de gran alcance, multifacético, de los aspectos positivos y negativos de ser una mujer en la sociedad contemporánea.

Cada uno de los monólogos aborda un aspecto de la experiencia femenina, tocando temas como el sexo, amor, violación, menstruación, la mutilación genital femenina, masturbación, nacimiento, orgasmo, los diversos nombres comunes para la vagina, o simplemente como un aspecto físico del cuerpo. Un tema recurrente a lo largo de la pieza es la vagina como una herramienta de empoderamiento femenino y la última encarnación de la individualidad.

Grinlight Theater Company presenta una versión en español adaptada y dirigida por Max Da Silva con actrices y personalidades locales de la ciudad de Chicago."

Tickets are $20 (plus processing fee), they are general admission and can be purchased here:http://losmonologos.brownpapertickets.com/

    I'll meet you guys there at around 7:30 pm. Don't be late. The feminists would think that I'm on my own and launch a merciless attack on me...

    Food or drink before or after the show works just the same for me. What does everyone think?

      Let's do it after then. That way we won't have to rush after work to get there.

    I work in Hannover Park, Antonieta interested in carpooling? Are you all planing to be there around 7:30? It will be nice to do something afterwards. Please let me know. Thanks Agnes, I will buy my tickets as well using the address you sent.

      I guess it depends on whether we're going to grab a drink before or after the play. To me either way is fine. I guess we'll see what would be preferred by most - hopefully we'll get more responses by Friday. In terms of carpooling, I'm not sure if it would work, I'm in Mount Prospect, I think it's about 20 miles from Hanover Park in another direction, yes?

    Would anybody be interested in getting something to eat/drink before the play? There's a tavern nearby (a few blocks) - http://www.duckfatgrill.com/ - I've never been there but the menu/pics look interesting.

    Hi there,
    Are you planning to carpool? What time are you leaving? How much are the tickets? Do we buy them in advance?
    Looking forward to get together again!

      I got my ticket in advance, just to be sure I have one when I get there. I don't know if it'll be sold out or not, so I think it's best to get it ahead of time. The tics are $20. I'm going to leave around 6:30pm, unless we meet earlier for drinks or something. Where do you live? We could carpool if it's convenient.
