Although she was born in Georgia and now calls New York home, playwright, curator, artist and activist Virginia Grise maintains strong ties to San Antonio. Besides the fact that Grise grew up in the Alamo City, her work continues to resonates here: The Guadalupe staged her Yale Drama Series Award-winning play blu to a full house in 2013; Teatro Auduaz kicked off its 2016 Nuestras Voces series with a presentation of The Panza Monologues (her anthology surrounding “that roll of belly we all try to hide”); and Trinity University closed out its 2017 Latinx Heritage Month series by welcoming Grise for a reading from Your Healing is Killing Me (a “performance manifesto based on lessons learned in San Antonio free health clinics and New York acupuncture schools; from the treatments and consejos of curanderas, abortion doctors, Marxist artists, community health workers, and bourgie dermatologists”). The official opening of Jump-Start Performance Co.’s 2018 season, This Is a Manifesto sees Grise collaborating with local artists for a series of readings and performances developed through a weeklong exploration of “artistic practices rooted in the politics of imagining a better world.”
