Carne viva in Postville: Stories of Madres and Monarchs

Written and directed by Jennifer Cooley and Karen Mitchell.

Carne viva in Postville: Stories of Madres and Monarchs is an ethnodrama based on the testimonials of Guatemalan women living in Iowa who seek to survive in the aftermath of the May 12, 2008 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid in Postville. Carne viva provides a medium for voices that are often silenced or "undocumented." The play explores the role of women's creative work (such as weaving, cooking, and storytelling) as a constructive force that combats the destructive elements of the workplace environment, gender divisions, racism, and government policies regarding immigration. Creators and actors will draw spectators into the complex and interwoven world of global migration in the 21st century through post-performance talk-backs, where solutions seem as elusive as butterflies...
