First Friday: Guadalupe Maravilla
A performative activation of Disease Thrower dedicated to ritual, movement and play to remedy the ongoing persecution and trauma experienced by undocumented people. As a migrant himself, Maravilla is acutely aware of the anxieties often experienced by undocumented peoples. Disease Thrower also reflects Maravilla’s own experiences with illness and recovery. Combining themes and forms that echo and reinforce each other across the different parts of the project, Disease Thrower, explores exercises that might help heal both the human body and the social body.
This performance will be produced in collaboration with Sacred Heart Community Center, Richmond. Made possible through the generous support of Alfonso Perez and Tanya Gonzalez.
