S/He Breathe/S

S/He Breathe/S - is a collaborative multisensory performance installation. Illuminating questions of belonging and existence within a socio-climate colonial devastated future, where Black and Brown people are turned into objects for ‘air-work’: cleaning toxic polluted air with their lungs, and white / light skinned folx are protected with breathing apparatus from birth. 
Centring hope, love and possibility, the central character, Xaymaca searches through ancestral connections of queer time-travel and techno-ecologies to hold a ritual - to speak to us, to remind us of what needs to be done....
