"In this millenium, it's time for women to transform the Alamo into a monument to peace, a wailing wall, a place of truth-telling and reconciliation, if we are serious about ending war." -Barbara Renaud Gonzalez
Remember el Alma (Remember your Soul) is a site-specific performance written, directed and performed by women exploring the legacy of colonization and war, collective grief and acts of public healing.
