Awilda Rodríguez Lora: The performer will enter the space with a black shirt that reads “I am not exotic I am exhausted¨(Created by brazilian artist Jenny Granado) and will then provide SUSTENTO to each of the audience members. SUSTENTO is carried in a small glass bottle, the content inside is local water. The SUSTENTO is distributed individually with a conversation about what is SUSTENTO for the person receiving and giving it. This part of the performance is done always with consent. It will occur as people enter the space without announcement from cutator/presenter. This section should give the performer the opportunity to connect with the audience as a way of humanizing both roles….we are all here witnessing each other. The performer will then find a space in the gallery where she will begin to remove her clothes and ask the audience to take care of her items while also talking and sharing the stories of the performers black latina queer body. Text is improvised as it is influenced by space, time and political atmosphere. The performer will then present a series of objects: a red lipstick, a black eyeliner, a roll of black gaffer tape, an american flag and scissors. The performer will then invite the audience to construct the performers body with the objects placed in front of her and them. She then closes her eyes and counts to 41. During this time audience is placing, drawing and manipulating the performers body. Once the counting ends and items are used on her body, she will then move/dance with her eyes closed around the gallery. The choreography will present various body poses that we can recognize from mainstream media and art. There isn't any sound or spoken text during this section. Moving around the space she will then open eyes and ask audience members to return her clothes. The total time of the performance should be 30 min. Cuerpxs Radicales showcases female-identified and gender- nonconforming Latinx artists in the greater NYC area who are exploding rigid notions of femininity. The series centers a younger generation of artists in performances that respond to themes and works in Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985, presented by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
