More Than Land | Más que un territorio
A cabaret by a cohort of intergenerational Queer performance artists from Puerto Rico investigating the internal and external perception of being considered a piece of land and not people, More Than Land | Más que un territorio captures the feelings produced by constant invasions, the unbridled resort-like use of our landscapes, Puerto Rico’s debt regime, and the laws that incentivize foreign investment and displacement of locals. The cabaret is led by Mickey Negrón, artistic director of Asuntos Efímeros, the performance platform he founded in 2011 that proposes performance art as a form of resistance within a colonial context. The artists that make up the cabaret night are frequent collaborators of the platform and of each other, forming a group that delineates a genealogy of performance art in Puerto Rico across the last five decades. With music, experimental dance, and performance, the cabaret presents a nightlife experience that interrogates issues of drunkenness, the passage of time, failure, the perception of fat bodies, the service industry, and tourism. Join us for a night of voices and bodies performing agony and joy in the face of uncertainty.
More Than Land | Más que un territorio will be presented on Friday, June 10 from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance.
