Mud Offerings, written and performed by Natalie Goodnow
"Mud Offerings" is a solo play written and performed by Natalie Goodnow, and directed by kt shorb. The play’s protagonist, a young, queer, Chicana, finds herself in the midst of a ferocious argument with none other than the Vírgen de Guadalupe. As the argument unfolds, the piece offers a body-centered analysis of the borderlands – geographical, social, political, sexual, and spiritual – the liminal spaces where all things get muddy.
