Una mujer desesperada.
Summary: FOMMA - Fortaleza de la Mujer Maya - is a collective of Mayan women who use theater as a tool for education and community building. They are performers, playwrights, and teachers who tour their work in their communities and internationally, performing plays that focus on women's and indigenous rights, literacy, cultural survival, ecology, health, and education in the Tzeltal and Tzotzil indigenous languages. 'Una mujer desesperada' is a play about domestic violence in which a woman and her daughter are at the mercy of the new husband/stepfather who is an alcoholic and an abusive person. The piece was produced by Sna Jtz'ibajom, the theater company that Isabel Juárez Espinoza and Petrona de la Cruz Cruz were a part of before they founded FOMMA in 1994.
