Four performances: Friday at 8 PM; Saturday at 2 & 8 PM; and Sunday at 2 PM.

Choreographer Miguel Gutierrez plays on the title of a seminal anthology of feminist essays for this provocative work that explores clichés of queerness and cultural identity.

In This Bridge Called My Ass, Gutierrez and five Latinx collaborators perform an elusive choreography of obsessive and perverse actions. Melodramatic tropes from Latin American songs and telenovelas are exploited within an unstable terrain of bodies, materials, light, and sound to show how familiar cultural structures contain absurdities that both reveal and celebrate difference.

A personal influence on Gutierrez, This Bridge Called My Back is a 1981 anthology of third-wave feminist essays by women of color that explores identity and critiques white feminism. As underlined by this thought-provoking performance, its insistence on intersectional awareness and political resistance is eerily relevant today.

At the artist’s request, a limited number of $5.00 tickets are available per show for low income PoC audience members. Please use BRIDGE for this discount at time of purchase. One discounted ticket max per purchase.
