On Friday, March 18, the Modern Languages Department will be taking upper level Spanish students to the National Hispanic Cultural Center to see "Real Women Have Curves." This original drama by Josefina’s López depicts five immigrant women working in a small sewing factory in East Los Angeles in the 1980s. The play highlights issues of gender politics and the Latina immigration experience. The drama describes the course of a summer at a textile factory where women talk about the trials and tribulations of their lives, loves, and deepest desires.
The Spanish teachers at SPX are blessed to have some valuable resources right here in the city of Albuquerque that support the Spanish language, arts and culture. Annually, at least one or more Spanish teachers take their students to the National Hispanic Cultural Center (the NHCC is located on 1701 4th Street, SW). Over the years, St. Pius teachers, students and parents have been treated to an array of world renowned performances and/or exhibits that promote and preserve the culture of the Spanish-speaking world. The NHCC is only one of three of its kind in the United States. Mr. Gary Romero is the Deputy Director at the Albuquerque’s Center and the father of SPX senior Jenna Romero.
