The Only Thing A Great Actress Needs
BY VACA 35 THEATRE GROUP
In this multi-award winning take on Genet’s The Maids, a small audience will be led backstage to witness two Mexican domestic servants prepare for the day ahead. They cook breakfast, wash, dance and tell stories in a sharp, revelatory piece that shines a piercing light on marginalisation and those who live in poverty with no hope of escaping their circumstances. Trough an evocative and sensory environment performers and the audience will coexist in a collective, tangible experience.
In association with 2019 CASA Festival
*Performed in Spanish with English surtitles
