Joteria: Our Untold Stories on Saturday, March 12th at 7:30pm ET as part of the Atlas Performing Arts Center’s INTERSECTIONS 2022 Festival.

Joteria: Our Untold Stories… expands the voices, bodies, and notio of the Mexican American identity with movement and storytelling centered around queerness. In a world where brown queer bodies are oftentimes scrutinized for being too fem, too dark, and not belonging in this country and where brown queer voices are shamed for having accents, not understanding English idioms and even silenced from mainstream narratives, Joteria showcases another world filled with beauty, complexity, and even fantasy.

Using art as a medium to process real life, Joteria explores the merging of two worlds that can oftentimes feel at conflict. Through a series of both scripted and unscripted scenes, Joteria wrestles with experiences of the brown queer community, including homophobia, xenophobia, racism, colorism, machismo, domestic violence and alcholism.
