and cultural ambiguity. Greenberg unravels the fall of "Grace," a
orphan raised by a Mexican maid on a Santa Barbara ranch in the

group of nomadic female rancheras. Dona Sangre explores living with
fractured cultural identity through the voice of Grace in this
merged-media epic poem,
set in 20th century Baja.
Dona Sangre, steaming with all the passion, poetry, melodrama and
a post-modern morality play, alternates between text, traditional
songs (sung acapella) and movement within a cabaret format.
including video, marionettes, ventriloquism and masks are also woven
into a lush
and magical narrative.
Dona Sangre is adapted from a novel also written by Aimee Greenberg.
