'Dark Madonna' Performance Set

May 22, 1986

"The Dark Madonna," a free performance-art event designed to dramatize women's cooperation across racial boundaries, will begin at dusk May 31 in UCLA's Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden.

The event, created by Suzannme Lacy, ends a year of planning by community groups including the Hispanic Women's Council, Women of Watts and the Asian Pacific Women's Network.

The event will feature a large cast of female performers from a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds, with recorded narratives describing crises that the performers have overcome.

The event will be dedicated to the late Margo Albert, founder and artistic director of Plaza de la Raza in Los Angeles.
