El sábado 25 de mayo a las 8 p.m. en el espacio de FOMMA (Avenida Argentina 14, Barrio Mexicanos), el Centro Hemisférico presentó “Dulces y amargos sueños,” un monólogo escrito por la dramaturga chiapaneca Petrona de la Cruz Cruz basado en una investigación propia sobre una niña que vivía en las afueras de un pueblo con sus padres y hermanos. Mediante el monólogo, la niña relata la historia de una niñez que no vivió y de la vida cotidiana de una adulta que adoptó a temprana edad. Sin embargo, a pesar de los obstáculos de su contexto familiar y cultural, el monólogo también narra cómo dicha niña traspasa los abismos del dolor para por fin gozar de la prosperidad y de la serenidad.

On Saturday, May 25 at 8 PM in FOMMA (Avenida Argentina 14, Barrio Mexicanos), Centro Hemisférico presented “Bitter and Sweet Dreams,” a monologue written by the Chiapanecan playwright Petrona de la Cruz Cruz and based on her own research about a young girl who lived on the outskirts of a town with her parents and siblings. Via the monologue, the girl tells the story of a childhood that she never had and of the daily life of an adult that she had to adopt at an early age. Nonetheless, despite the obstacles presented by her familiar and cultural contexts, the monologue also demonstrates how the girl overcomes the depths of pain and finally enjoys prosperity and peace.
