Stretching My Skin Until It Rips Whole

This performance is part of the All The Rage II series, performances by women. Elia Arce introduces the women in her life who have shaped her definition of “woman,” including “Elia’s white-skinned hyper-emotional mother who was mistakenly prescribed speech-impairing drugs, her Indian grandmother who raised eight children by selling brasseries for overweight women, the old aunt who never married because she became her grandfather’s live-in maid, and more…” Funded by Rockefeller Foundation and Cultural Affairs Department of the City of LA.
