TAP Teaching Artist Natalie Goodnow performing tonight!

One of my favorite things about being a part of TAP is that I get to meet so many amazing artists and activists from all over Austin, doing all kinds of different things” – Natalie Goodnow

Come check out Natalie’s latest project!

Eagle Woman Poems
written and performed by Natalie Goodnow directed by kt shorb an in-progress showing July 21st, 8 p.m. The Yard @ The VORTEX (outdoor stage) $8 suggestion donation, none turned away for lack of funds.

Eagle Woman Poems navigates the tensions and contradictions that arise for a young, queer, mixed-race Chicana, as she struggles to achieve independence from oppressive legacies of the past and interdependence in every sense – socially, economically, environmentally, politically, and personally. Executed in a surreal domestic landscape, the anthropomorphic character of Eagle Woman straddles the space between reality and myth, attempting rote domestic tasks while communing with ancient goddesses.

The Generic Ensemble Company (GenEnCo) makes the invisible visible through bold, socially relevant, body-centered theatre. GenEnCo is a team of artists that devises and produces innovative adaptations and new work. GenEnCo views marginal bodies, experiences, and subject positions as central to the form and content of creating work. As such, they strive to promote, foster, and engage performance, writing, and ideas of/with people of color, queers, gender queers, women, working class people, immigrants, and youth.
