It is unbelievable, that after what feels more like a lifetime than a year, 3 residencies, 2 countries, countless applications, successes, failures, we prepare to open and share what we have created with you. Continuing to collaborate with Miguel Gutierrez and this band of talented creators has come or created a moment of great searching and growth and I’m so very thankful this mad world is resisted in these rooms of mad love.
THIS BRIDGE CALLED MY ASS
In This Bridge Called My Ass six Latinx performers – Alvaro Gonzalez, John Gutierrez, Miguel Gutierrez, Xandra Ibarra, Nibia Pastrana Santiago, and Evelyn Sanchez Narvaez – map an elusive choreography of obsessive and perverse action within an unstable terrain of bodies, materials and sound. A formal logic binds the group and propels them to create a constantly transforming world where their togetherness retains autonomy to complicate the idea of identity. Clichéd Latin-American songs and the form of the telenovela are exploited to show how familiar structures contain absurdity that reveal and celebrate difference.
