Bring chocolate medicine into your life with the Chocolate Woman Collective’s latest creation: Chocolate Woman Dreams the Milky Way. This critically acclaimed, innovative and ground-breaking theatrical performance uses stunning visual imagery and physical storytelling to take you on a trip down the rabbit-hole — Guna style! Experience the magical blend of creation, struggle and healing in a night of theatre that celebrates feminine forces from a distinctly indigenous perspective.

Chocolate Woman Dreams the Milky Way layers the stories of a girl-soldier, a Daughter from the Stars, and Sky Woman Falling (First Woman) with re-tellings of cultural stories of the Grandmothers of Creation. The play weaves realities to create a daring, thought provoking performance. It is a dramatic narrative in a tapestry of creation, conflict and healing towards wholeness. (
