100 Years of Attitude
Previews: July 1-3,
Everybody thought there were no lesbians in Macondo.
Susana Cooks 100 Years of Attitude constructs an allegory
of worldly crisis which constantly jumps the divide between the surreal
and the commonplace. Latin American Magic Realism meets Global Logic
Terrorism in this frenzied clash of sanctifiers, executioners, lesbian
homeowners, and some very undistinguished guests - all fighting to make
their way in one queer land of make believe. This epic tale of love, valour,
and staged compassion follows the family of women as they venture beyond
death and silence to embark on a 100-year journey in search of progress
and their very own dramatic reappearance.

Cook welcomes you to a world of adaptation and civilization - gone awry - as only she could tell it. Her artistic approach has been described as Argentinean-Butch-Political-Performance-Art and, as with all of her work, 100 Years of Attitude deftly combines political satire, dark humor, and non-traditional branches of theater, to create this tour de force of biting social commentary.
