After a nearly twenty-four-month intermission, Powerstories Theatre returns on February 3- 20 with the production REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES by Josefina López. This crowd-pleasing comedy gem examines the bond between five headstrong and determined Latinx women in a small sewing factory in East Los Angeles.  

Under the direction of Linda Edmundo, REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES features Alejandra Sepúlveda Colón as Ana, Michelle Crowder-Soellner as Estela, Lillian Almodovar as Carmen, Lupita Hahn as Pancha, and Natalia Cruz De Dios as Rosali.

“It is so funny. This is a comedy, first and foremost, but it also has valuable lessons,” said Linda. “There’s female empowerment and entrepreneurship. There’s also family and women of all different ages and generations coming together, working together for the good of one common goal. They are coming together as women, as Latinas and working hard.”

Linda said that an important theme of REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES is challenging society’s ideas of beauty or what a body should look like.

“Women do have curves, and it’s ok to express that. We don’t have to try to fit into certain fashion and clothes. We can build the clothes around our beautiful bodies.”

In celebration of this story of these five strong Latinx women and Powerstories long-awaited return, the theatre is debuting an art wall and seeking Latinx artists to display their original artwork in their lobby. The theatre accepts any visual arts medium from sketch, charcoal, paint, or photography to hang on this wall. Depending upon size, they have space for up to 20 pieces, first come, first served. There is no cost to participate, and artists will also be featured online and on social media. The deadline is January 24. Artists can register at https://forms.gle/hzt5Dx9a9543b8fS8

Powerstories founder Fran Powers said, “We are so excited because it’s 2022, and we are finally doing live theatre back in our theatre. Join us! We can’t wait to see you at the theatre.”

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES is February 3-20 at Powerstories Theatre, 2105 W Kennedy Blvd, Thursdays through Saturdays 8 pm and Sundays 2 pm Matinee. Tickets are $25 general admission, $17 students/seniors/military at powerstories.ticketleap.com/real-women-have-curves/t/Press. Learn more at www.powerstories.com.Temperature checks and masks are required.

Interglacial

Interglacial is a new multidisciplinary dance work through which choreographer Laura Peterson explores the urgent topic of climate change, inspired by minimalist geometric art and Land Art of the 1960s and ’70s. A dance and visual art installation project, Interglacial is about deep time and the dynamics of nature that is designed to create a space for reflection on human impacts on the Arctic region of the earth and to encourage climate activism. In the piece, four dancers manipulate a set made entirely of paper transforming an icy landscape into enormous sculptures and become a tsunami that overtakes the stage.  Laura Peterson is a NYC-based dance artist creating works that challenge the limits of physicality and reframe performance spaces.
