A timely collection of Latina performance pieces Surveying the Latina theatre movement in the United States since the 1980s, La Voz Latina brings together contemporary plays and performance pieces by innovative Latina playwrights. This rich collection of varying styles, forms, themes, and genres includes work by Yareli Arizmendi, Josefina Baez, The Colorado Sisters, Migdalia Cruz, Evelina Fernandez, Cherrie Moraga, Carmen Pelaez, Carmen Rivera, Celia H. Rodriguez, Diane Rodriguez, and Milcha Sanchez-Scott, as well as commentary by Kathy Perkins and Caridad Svich on the present state of Latinas in theatre roles. La Voz Latina expands the field of Latina theatre while situating it in the larger spectrum of American stage and performance studies. In highlighting the ethnic and cultural roots of the performance artists, Elizabeth C. Ramirez and Catherine Casiano provide historical context as well as a short biography, production history, and artistic statement from each playwright.
