Wednesday, March 16th @ 11:00am in Van Nostrand Theater of the Sagtikos Arts and Sciences Center. 


An extremely rare opportunity to experience the pioneering work of the legendary Janis Astor del Valle — followed by a discussion of the role of performance in the Latina/o LGBTQ community.


Janis Astor del Valle is a living legend in the world of Solo Performance Art, the Latina/o Theatre, and the LGBTQ Theatre. Her one-person shows have been presented throughout the world and Ms. Astor del Valle has been heralded as one of the most iconic performers of the last 20 years of New York Theatre. Her work has been published in multiple anthologies and she is studied by theatre and performance arts students throughout the world.


It is truly an honor to have such an important artist grace the stage of the Van Nostrand Theater and such a rare opportunity to see her perform selections from two of her most popular plays, Transplantations and Becoming Joaquin.


Immediately following her performance, Ms. Astor del Valle will sit down with Dr. Jason Ramírez and discuss the evolution of the Latina/o Feminist canon of performance and the history of LGBTQ Theatre in the post-Reagan era.


This program is brought to you by a grant from the LATINO AMERICANS: 500 YEARS OF HISTORY Foundation which was awarded to the Michael J. Grant Campus by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
