Latin American Women Playwrights Kick-off the Aluna Café

 Monday September 24


From the Waist Down (1999)

by Diana Raznovich  (in English Translation)

“humorously points to the interconnections between sex, capitalism, and militarism.”  (Diane Taylor)


Doors open at 7pm, reading begins at 7:30 pm sharp!


“My style, which is also my unrestrained opinion, is a dangerous mix of humor and distraction; as if upon finding you, I would invite you to go over my work, upon defining me, I would ask you to ‘undefine’ me and once unknown, I would begin to know you”  


Diana Raznovich, Argentine playwright and cartoonist has written a dozen plays characterized by humor, intelligence and unwavering defiance of delimiting social systems.  Raznovich uses her art to critique and transgress social r
estrictions imposed since her coming of age during the time of the Dirty War (1976-83). Raznovich has won prestigious awards the world over, including a Guggenheim in the U.S.
