Women Like a River Falling from the Sky
A story that is part myth, part made up: High up on a mountaintop a beautiful woman in a floor length orange skirt dances with the Zopilote, a Latin American symbol of death and rebirth. When the dance is complete, the Zopilote dies, the woman becomes the Zopilote, and a new woman appears. They dance and the cycle repeats again and again and again. In this audio play, the audience, referred to as "you," starts on a journey accompanied by Zopilote, and encounter Hortensia, Azucena, and Ana -- three women who are at the crossroads of their own deaths, and each know acutely what it feels like to accumulate pain and to fade a little bit with each new sorrow in this unending dance with mortality.
