Virginia Grize with Quetzal

From sharp shooters to earthmovers, roaming dogs, helicopters in the sky, quarantines and men that fly, musical director Martha Gonzalez and writer Virginia Grise chronicle the process of adapting Helena María Viramontes’ epic novel Their Dogs Came with Them in a medium security women’s prison and the site-specific staging of the play under the I-19 Freeway with a community cast of scholars, organizers and actors. Directed by Kendra Ware, this performance lecture includes live music by members of the band Quetzal, giving audiences a sneak peek into their most recent project together, a concept album, Riding the Currents of the Wilding Wind.

Virginia Grise is the 2022 recipient of The Herb Alpert Award in the Arts in Theatre.
