These are the stories of four inspiring women: Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector; Mexican painter Frida Kahlo; Chilean writer and composer Violeta Parra and the Bolivian military leader of indigenous ancestry Juana Azurduy. In these stories, there are no crowns or castles, but real women, who challenged the norm and revolutionized the world through literature, art and politics. To remember these women, these flesh-and-blood heroines, is to show that life isn’t a “fairytale” and that it’s worth fighting for what you believe in.

Juana Azurduy was a woman-mother-warrior of indigenous origins who fought for a better country and for Bolivian independence. On horseback, with sword and pistol in hand, this brave and kind woman faced all battles by challenging life itself.

Commissioned by São Luiz Municipal Theatre and EGEAC’s Public Space Programming department, it’s based on the Antiprincesas collection (Tinta da China/EGEAC)

 

The 11 am session scheduled for Sunday, September 16th, will not take place. Instead, there will be an extra session on that same day, at 5.30 pm.
