Coya Paz is a dramaturg, editor, director, performer and is a principal with both Teatro Luna and Proyecto Latina. Teatro Luna is Chicago’s first and only all-Latina theater company. The company approaches their work as artists from the perspective that stories matter, that our stories matter, and that our stories represent histories beyond our individual lives that are not often heard. Proyecto Latina is a monthly open stage co-hosted by Teatro Luna, Tianguis Books, Mariposa Atomica Ink, offering a supportive public space for Latina artists of all kinds to share their work.
To make this an even more compelling evening of poetry, the traditional open mic, will be handled by Tia Chucha Press, Momotombo Press and MARCHAbrazo Press
