RUBY NELDA PEREZ began a career as a solo artist in San Antonio, Texas, when she was asked to select and recite Latina literary works at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center in 1985. Actor, soloist, and comedienne, she brings to life an array of full-bodied, emotionally textured characters in colorful performances. Her portrayals have brought national recognition, eliciting enthusiastic reactions from both the Spanish and non Spanish speaking audiences. Through collaborations with Latino and Latina writers, she weaves legends, stories, folk tales, and many biographical experiences. Ruby is considered one of the most talented Chicana Theater artists nationally and in San Antonio. She was selected by Dallas Morning News' Theater Top 10, inclusion in The Texas Commission on The Arts, Texas Touring Program Company and Artist Roster, The National Performance Network (NPN), and The Network of Cultural Centers of Color Roster (NY). She has performed throughout the United States, Mexico, and Latin America, in venues including: The Smithsonian Institute (Washington D.C.), The Public Theater (NY), The Mexican Fine Arts Museum in Chicago (ILL), El Centro de In Raza (San Diego, CA), The Women's Center at The University of Louisville (KY), Festival International de In Raza (Mexico City) , University of Lima (Lima, Peru), and at various Mexican and U.S. border towns, plus many performances in rural areas, labor camps, and incarcerated institutions.
