The Panza Monologues is an original solo performance piece by Virginia Grise and Irma Mayorga based on women's stories about their panzas. Tú sabes - that roll of belly we all try to hide. Conceived from conversations, chisme, interviews, and original writing and performed in monologue format, The Panza Monologues boldly places the panza front and center as a symbol that reveals the conditions about women's thoughts, lives, loves, and challenges. In 2014, the University of Texas Press published the second edition of The Panza Monologues. Read more about the new book here.
