F*cker. with Mother.Redux. - a collaboration of five inter-disciplinary, inter-racial, and inter-cultural group of women performing artists. Going beyond the Hallmark card, they speak the unspoken, the shameful, the hilarious and the absurd that results in a compelling evening of dance-theater. They expose the miracle of the transformation as well as trace the sexism, racism, isolation and anxiety encountered along the way. Best known for dancing in unexpected places with unexpected people, Suarez’s past work has been hailed as “ingeniously crafted… poignant… [and] hilarious” by the Los Angeles Times, “savvy” by The New York Times and “smart and stylish” by the Village Voice.
