A Play with Music

When storms hit, what is to find our homes broken, distanced, and displaced?

2 Women / 1 Men / 2 Any

Seeking where to find myself,
I am soil breaking off –
I am a mangrove’s seed.


Fuga was presented at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in July 2018, as part of the full-length diásPoRa (previously titled Riqueño).


The play has been presented at Conch Shell Productions & HB Studios's #bluelightseries (2020), WRCT 88.3FM Barrio Latino (2017); workshopped at Carnegie Mellon's School of Drama Playground Festival (2016); and created through Carnegie Mellon SURF Fellowship (2017).
