The Beast of Times (formerly, "Jotalogues.") was conceived and written by Adelina, after she received the NPN Creation Fund Award in 2010. Early in the workshop process she invited fellow artist, D'Lo to co-perform. Aside from a constant source of inspiration in the workshop rehearsals, he contributed a character monologue to the play, and helped originate some of the zany characterizations.

This production officially world-premieres in Los Angeles for a 3-week run at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center's Renberg Theater from May 31st-June 16th, 2013.
"We might possess every technological resource... but if our language is inadequate, our vision remains formless, our thinking and feeling are still running in the old cycles, our process may be "revolutionary" but not transformative."
-- Adrienne Rich
