Design Statement

Lloronx was an original work created for the  2019 Bi-Annual Student created Cohen New Works Festival at the University of Texas at Austin. Lloronx​ is a play with music and movement that upends the Latinx stereotypes of La Virgen, La Madre y La Puta, through the lens of the folktale ​La Llorona​ and its origins.

This project was exciting and challenging to me to be able to set aside my preconceived ideas around Latinx women as a white man, and come to the table to learn the stories and build a vocabulary of color and angle that would come from the character's auras, through the actor and take over the space during their monologues.
