Join us on Mother’s day weekend for our 10th Anniversary New Performance Festival! TeAda’s newest batch of artists explore ancestry, mothers and grandmothers through storytelling, movement and poetry—all incubated through our TEADAWORKS Development Lab.
Returning to Maiz by Tannia Esparza
“Returning” brings to life intergenerational storytelling through the ritual of cooking and draws from Aztec and Mayan mythology, to reclaim, reimagine, and offer ceremony to the origin of Xicana creation stories-corn.
Following Shadows by Jumakae
Should you live a puppet’s life or your mother’s? Jumakae will explore different philosophies in love and life based on the stories of her mother and grandmother.
Grandma’s Hands by Carla Vega
Weaved with memories, stories, poetry and dance, this exploration of ancestry is inspired by Carla’s late grandmother, honoring the creativity and courage in all women.
