"Gorda: A One Woman Show" By Sara Fucking Ornelas

  • New Women Space 188 Woodpoint Road Brooklyn, NY, 11211 United States (map)

RSVP HERE!

Trenza is proud to present Gorda, a one-woman show written by Sara Ornelas at New Women Space. Through music, storytelling, and theater, she examines various stages of her life when her talent for vulnerability has kicked her in the face. She celebrates her Latinx roots in a Mariachi lip-sync and personifies insecurity and judgment as two Mean Girls pretending to be her friends. By performing some of her deepest fears she hopes to bring comfort to anyone who has eaten a whole half-gallon of mint chocolate chip ice cream in one sitting....twice.

Her one woman show debuted at The Tank in April and was most recently picked up by the Houston Fringe Festival in September. The show lasts an hour an a half with an intermission. 10% off all ticket sales will be donated to a Latinx-serving Non-Profit. TRIGGER WARNING: Sexual assault, mental health, and sexual identity.

Sara Ornelas was born and raised deep in the heart of Brownsville, Texas and wears her latin roots proudly. She sang at every opportunity in church and usually played Satan. When she found theater, she drove 6 hours north and received her BFA at the University of Houston. She's performed in Amarillo, lived in the 1700's, and fought D'Artagnan in fifteen countries. Her New York debut was with the Exquisite Corpse Company as Frida Kahlo in A Ribbon About A Bomb, and most recently played Margaret/Verges in Much Ado About Nothing at Titan Theater Company in Queens. If she's not watching The Great British Baking Show she's roller skating, reading, or baking for her roommates.

Guests will also have the chance to shop the Trenza Tienda, featuring popular Latinx e-tailers such as Vive Cosmetics, Rizos Curls, and Jen Zeano Designs. All drinks must be purchased prior to the event as a part of tickets sales.
