"Latina Performance is a densely theorized treatment of rich materials." —MultiCultural Review

"Arrizón's important book revolves around the complex issues of identity formation and power relations for US women performers of Latin American descent." —Choice

Latina Performance examines the Latina subject whose work as dramatist, actress, theorist, and/or critic further defines the field of theater and performance in the United States. Alicia Arrizón looks at the cultural politics that flows from the intersection of gender, ethnicity, race, class, and sexuality.
