TYTT: An Experiment in Storytelling
"Got a true tale to tell? Something that happened to you? A relative, friend, or someone from your hometown? Something offbeat, gripping, heartwarming or tearjerking?
Write it. English or Spanish. Send it in. I can't pay anything. But I'll edit it. We'll talk about how to improve it. And I'll put it on this site for the world to read."
Aim for 750 words and start writing!

Teatro Chicana
A Collective Memoir and Selected Plays

Thursday February 12, 2009
1:00pm-2:30pm
Tillie Lewis Theater


Poster available

The 1970s and 1980s saw the awakening of social awareness and political activism in Mexican-American communities. In San Diego, a group of Chicana women participated in a political theatre group whose plays addressed social, gender, and political issues of the working class and the Chicano Movement. In this Collective memoir, seventeen women who were part of Teatro de las Chicanas come together to share how it transformed their lives. Teatro Chicana tells the story of this troupe through chapters featuring the history and present-day story of each of the main actors and writers, as well as excerpts from the group's materials and seven of their original short scripts.
The panel will read from the book as well as discuss their collective process over a span of nine years to write and publish the book with University Press.
