THIS BRIDGE CALLED MY ASS—a new performance piece by Miguel Gutierrez—will be at the Chocolate Factory Theater through the end of the week.
Inspired by This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, Gutierrez’s performers—Alvaro Gonzalez, John Gutierrez, Miguel Gutierrez, Xandra Ibarra, Nibia Pastrana Santiago, and Evelyn Sanchez Narvaez—“map an elusive choreography of obsessive and perverse action within an unstable terrain of bodies, materials and sound.” The use of popular songs and telenovelas show how “familiar structures contain absurdity that reveal and celebrate difference.”*
Through Saturday, January 19.
5–49 49th Avenue, Long Island City, Queens.
