"A theatre of color, and a culturally specific theatre like Cara Mía Theatre, needs fierce, educated "artivistas" like Edyka. People like her connect the real needs of the community to the power of art in exquisite and impactful ways. Over the past year, her voice has become a challenging and vital presence in our organization, pulling us towards more cutting edge art and activism."
Executive Artistic Director of Cara Mia Theatre Company
"Edyka is a powerful truth teller [...] full of humor, insight, passion and fierce love for her family, her communities and the healing, transformative power of words. Her words were memorable and we eagerly shared them with audiences.
Senior Strategist of GLAAD
"At the end of our lives, if we are given a chance, we will look back on the experiences and people that have most touched us. Edyka Chilomé is just such a person. Her poems and spoken word stir the marrow of soul with gentle/fierce musings. She Speaks | Poetry is a must read for those yearning to discover new ways to open up to deep personal and global transformation."
