BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance 2474 Westchester Ave., Bronx, NY 10461

Growing up in rural Nicaragua, queer performance artist Elyla Sinverguenza (Fredman Barahona) 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.

Supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts
