For Anna De Luna, things changed about 10 years ago; San Antonio's roles for Latinas suddenly seemed to disappear. Frustrated but not beaten by the sudden loss of work, she turned inward and developed Chicana Atheist, a solo show that explores her own identity. Later, she transformed her work with the San Antonio AIDS Foundation into The AIDS Lady, a piece that has been performed in Walgreens parking lots and beyond to promote HIV awareness and testing. Her latest work, My Arab Fall, chronicles her time as a tourist in Egypt after their Arab Spring, positioning her view as a Westerner alongside that of an Egyptian activist. Free, 5pm & 8pm Sat, Performing Arts Center – Black Box Theater, Palo Alto College, 1400 W. Villaret Blvd., (210) 486-3000, facebook.com. — Murphi Cook
