Little Tainted Blood (2010-2011)

Actor / Award-winning / Playwright

Little Tainted Blood is an autobiographical one-woman show about how shame passes in the bloodstream until it is confronted, challenged and changed. It parallels the stories of Julia’s maternal grandmother and her father; their secrets and their “tainted blood.” She journeys from Transylvania to Texas, over four generations and 60 years, using found text, family videos and photos, illustration, song, boxing and more to explore the “lies she will not keep.”
