Artist Bio

Felipa Mendoza Lerma is an Arizona native, raised in Sonora, Mexico for the first portion of her childhood. Felipa’s background in theatre has provided her with the tools to create social experimental work, focusing on deciphering the woman identity and cultural identity along with their many roles, researching social and cultural layers, to not only develop an understanding of identity, but also practice inclusiveness amongst one another. Felipa is part of the Común Teatro Experimental Collective that emerges from the need to ferment dialogue, question, listen and sustain an understanding of social issues and thus strengthen the cultural identity of a group/community.
