La voz de FOMMA (2007)

Video documentation of FOMMA's performance La Voz de FOMMA (The Voice of FOMMA), presented as a part of the 6th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the title "CORPOLÍTICAS en las Américas: Formaciones de Raza, Clase y Género / Body Politics in the Americas: Formations of Race, Class and Gender." The performance, comprised of 5 skits, functions as a sampling of FOMMA's theater work: "Space for Venting/ Drunkards at a Bar," "Sebastiana Puts her Husband's Boots on Him," "Sebastiana Waits for the Doctor," "Drunken Doctor," and a brief introduction to the work of FOMMA by performers Isabel Juárez Espinosa and María Francisca Oseguera Cruz. Fortaleza de la Mujer Maya (FOMMA) is a Mexican NGO in Chiapas whose mission is to empower Mayan women through bilingual literacy courses (in Tzotzil and Tzeltal), workshops in productive skills, health education and theater.
