Monologue by Mariela Noles Cotito

Recuerdos de octubre

Arequipa 2023, 

Recuerdos de octubre is a single-act solo performance that explores the complexities of inter-generational relationships among women of the same family. It is about the violence experienced in the body of the protagonist with respect to her mother and her grandmother, and the hope and the despair that her relationship with her daughter causes her. Throughout this process, she herself questions the need to mother her internal child and forget the past or overcome it. María Beatriz, the main character, is a single woman, and yet is all of us. The dramatist Mariela Noles Cotito (Peru) is a lecturer in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the University of the Pacific and a researcher into matters of human rights, interculturality, gender equality and public policies related to social inclusion.

At the end of the monologue there will be a Q&A with Mariela Noles Cotito.
