Elyla Sinverguenza | Countering Colonialism: A Queer Ritual of Healing
Growing up in rural Nicaragua, queer performance artist Elyla Sinverguenza endured the country’s toxic and ongoing legacy of colonialism. In their visceral new performance piece Saint Peter Goose/Duck Pulling, Sinverguenza transforms a violent and hyper-masculine ritual from the country’s patriarchal tradition into an immersive experience of healing for artist and audience members alike. Join Sinverguenza for the world premiere of this participatory act of creativity, as a country’s troubled history is revisited through a cathartic and engaging ceremony.
