Playwright-performer, Milta Ortiz, ruminates on the anxieties, vulnerabilities and struggles of four contemporary women of color walking a complex tightrope between salvation and self-destruction in their sometimes neurotic, sometimes noble search for love and self-realization. An ensemble performance straddling the comic and the tragic, the real and the imaginary, the material and the mythological aspects of being a so-called, “strong, independent woman.” Seamlessly blending theatre, dance, live music, video and spoken word, SCATTER MY RED UNDERWEAR presents a postmodern romp through a NeoXicana feminism.
This fourth rendition of SMRU (previous productions included performances at MACLA in San Jose, Malonga Center for the Arts in Oakland and La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley) features several new elements including choreography by Hugo Carbajal, live music by Lakín Valdez and an expanded cast deftly directed by La Peña resident artist, Marc David Pinate.
