Qué gringa, que gringa

Inspired by Sandra Cisneros, Gloria Anzaldua, Melissa Lozada-Oliva, and Arnoldo de Leon, Megan is currently developing an autobiographical, evening-length solo work titled, Qué gringa, que gringa. For the first time, this vehicle is enabling her to develop movement rituals that reconnect her to her unknown ancestry, as well as explore her adoption, identity,  and mixed heritage within the current political climate in the United States.

Megan started working on Qué gringa, que gringa in August of 2018. It is designed to become an evening-length interactive solo that incorporates action dialogue with Megan’s extensive experience with spontaneous composition. Upon completion, it will be presented for Spanish- and English-speaking audiences, only revealing its full form to bilinguals. The goal of the work is to increase dialogue between the two populations as an antidote to our politically polarizing times.

To date, Megan has performed excerpts of Qué gringa, que gringa in proscenium, gallery and outdoor spaces as a part of the Texas Dance Improvisation Festival (seen above) and the Columbia Dance and Improv Festival.
