Naomi Rincón Gallardo: The Formaldehyde Trip

Show Information

In this psychedelic speculative fiction, Mexico City-based artist Naomi Rincón Gallardo has written an directed a cycle of songs and videos dedicated to murdered activist Alberta “Bety” Cariño, who defended indigenous territorial rights. The work is performed live with idiosyncratic and ornate props and costumes that echo Mexican B-side Sci-Fi films of the 60s and 70s, weaving together Mesoamerican cosmologies, decolonial feminist and queer perspectives, and lyrics addressing indigenous women’s struggles against the background of the dispossession of their bodies, cultures, and territories.

Please note: This performance contains strobe lighting and sexually suggestive costumes, gestures, and language.

This performance is presented mostly in Spanish, with some moments in English and German. English supertitles will be provided throughout the performance.
