Mario Barrantes Espinoza + DALL-E

Flesh can’t can’ t not’t ‘tis flesh h…

Imagine a sci-fi world shaped by the musical genre of reggaeton, the urban dance perreo, the linguistic experience of accessing everyday life through a limited understanding of English, and the historical connection of Central America with the export of exotic fruits. 

This is the world that Flesh can’t can’  t  not’t ‘tis flesh h… invokes, a multimedia performance that mixes live music, projection of text, dance and sculpture. Two burning bodies guide us through the landscapes of a foreign world, to explore the bittersweet ventures of the Global South-Global North migration, and to trace part of the queer histories found in the Central American region.
