Written and performed by Giullianna Martinez, HóPe follows 2 interwoven storylines: a woman facing her mother’s blood cancer diagnosis and the life of Colombian revolutionary Policarpa Salavarrieta. Whether fighting against illness or oppression, they’re connected by their quest for freedom.
La Pola (Policarpa) is working as a spy for revolutionary forces, collecting intelligence while working undercover as a seamstress for Spanish military leaders. Andy struggles to accept the reality of her mother’s multiple myeloma diagnosis and takes the reins to find her treatment. In pursuit of her mother’s healing, she unexpectedly finds her own.
HóPe inspires us to reflect on our own meaning of freedom, and the ways in which we are bound. Whether from illness, oppression or fear, freedom can come in many forms.
