Delves deep into the makings of an immigrant family. Presented both in person and live streamed!
Inspirited with the tradition of Umbanda ritual, the music of Gloria Estefan, Cher, and Maria Bethânia, "Ni Mi Madre" invites the audience into the tumultuous relationship between Bete (a larger-than-life Brazilian woman who swears that if it weren’t for Madonna, Meryl Streep, and Angelina Jolie she would have been the “It” thing) and her queer son. She grapples with the secrets that tear her and her son apart, the unbidden memories of her estranged mother, and the lineage that binds them all together. "Ni Mi Madre" explores the intersection between queerness and Latinidad; examines gender, sexuality, family, citizenship, transculturation, identity; and lays bare the secrets, memories, fears, and celebrations of being an immigrant and first-generation American.
