Marta is a dancer, performer, choreographer, composer, painter, and sewed all her costumes for her one woman show. Her father asked her, "Is there anything else useless that you could do?" He never understood why she clung to her artistic talents thinking it was a waste of her time. Her mother was a needy person that was a constant drain on Marta's energy. Her husband ends up hating her and her art and ends up leaving her. leaves her.

Marta did find a certain amount of acclaim with all of her talents. A documentary about her was up for an Oscar that I want to see. From what I can tell she is still creating and teaching today.
