Vox Feminista's "Money" is a bargain of a show

Vox Feminista, Colorado’s premier radical theater troupe, addresses such timely topics as ecological capitalism, poverty and feminism, prison labor, Pentagon spending, corporate greenwashing, lobbying, health care, banking and how we count in their spring production MONEY opening tonight at the Nomad.

Through poetry, drama, comedy, video, and song, Vox examines the tragedy of the market and the counter forces we’ll need in order to heal.

"As the impossible bubble economy bursts like fireworks all around us, Vox Feminista ponders the subject of MONEY - money and meaning, the meaning of money. How do we measure well-being in a state of imperial decline and denial? How do we redefine “national security” and “terrorism”? What should we do with a system that teaches us to destroy our only habitat? Can we awaken humanity’s sleeping heart? Because, now we know: what’s for sale in America is our welfare. Homo Economicus staggers forward. Hopefully, we’ll find the will to use this crisis as an opportunity to enlarge a harvest of real democracy and learn to share."
