UJIMA COMPANY Inc., Presents BIOP-SEE A One Act Play of a Woman’s Solo Journey Through Lupus Diagnosis

For three nights only, March 26, 27 at 8p.m. and March 28 at 6p.m. Ujima Co. inc. brings to the virtual stage a live stream of their latest stage play Biop-See. 

Written by Tatiana de La Tierra, Biop-See , and directed by Sara Norat Philips staring actress Hilda Millie Ramos is an autobiographical one-act play depicting a woman’s solo journey through her diagnosis of lupus. 

As an outspoken latina activist and lesbian writer, tatiana holds back no truth when sifting through the layers of her life, while it flashes before her eyes. Her emotions and thoughts are explored and expressed through memories, allegorical poems, and multiple “girl talks” with herself. 

Although ultimately it is a truth that is hard to face, Biop-see shares the struggle and acceptance of a woman grasping for joy while facing her end of life.

“We found the script for Biop-see while sifting through files of plays Lorna had considered, as we searched for one-acts Ujima could successfully produce in a virtual world,” said Sarah Norat-Phillips, a founding member of Ujima Company who returns to Buffalo to direct this production after twenty years working in Detroit. She continued, “Many of us came to know tatiana when she lived and worked in Buffalo during the late 90’s. She was a force of  nature and in this one-act she uses her gift with words to reveal her joy, her hope, her rage and her pain, as she grapples with the debilitating illness that ultimately took her life at an early age.”

Insiders are saying the performance by local dancer, actress, educator, Hilda “Millie” Ramos (pictured above) is not to be missed! Tickets are $15.00 at www.ujimacoinc.org
