We've been working hard adding some new spices here and there to bring our fuerte flava out in full effect. This will be the culmination of a lot work on our current piece and after this we will be moving on preparing for a full length show with La Peña's experimental Teatro in June and then on to Milta's obra maestra in the fall. So don't miss this show this friday! It's going to be so much fun and we go on first so don't be late! (and FRIDAY is MILTA's B-day so lets party!)

Las Manas Tres "Mi Espacio" pokes fun and peels back the layers of community building and relationships, speaking from the in between spaces as hi-tech aztecs, cyber mamas and spiritual beings. Delina Brooks "Beauty, The Beast", a biographical dance-theater play of poetry, song, & dance. Guerrilla Radio by El Teatro Campesino is an acto tackling media reform and the National Association of Broadcasters.
Las Manas Tres (Maya, Milta and Cruz) are hybrid poetas bringing the fuerte flava, heating the heart and melting the mind from the Bay to L.A. Their stilo is characterized by a mixture of theater, spoken word and movement, centered around themes of social justice, sexuality, motherhood and the relationship between first and third world women. Born from the Las Manas Sisterhood Circle, individually these women are accomplished in their own right. As a trio they take their creativity to new heights using sisterhood and storytelling to inspire collaborative pieces that delve into pain, injustice, love, family, community, and identity, which conjure a potent potion to fend off the plague of self-sabotage. Their newest work pokes fun and peels back the layers of community building and relationships, speaking from the in between spaces as hi-tech aztecs, cyber mamas and spiritual beings. LM3 are always ready to bring the hotness. Yaddamean?
