The Space Between Body, Spirit, and Migration: A Poetry Reading and Drag Performance (Radical Kinship Series)
“The Space Between Body, Spirit, and Migration” considers how poetry and drag performance can inform us about the quotidian experiences of racialized migrants in the United States. Writer Gladys Wangeci Gitau-Damaskos will read and talk about her second book, I’m Not Allowed to Explain (Only Foreshadow & Reminisce), which serves as an attempt to recollect the space between body and spirit when one gives in to life’s journey as a queer Black migrant femme. Drag performer Wo Chan (a.k.a Pearl Harbor) will blend sound art, performance art, and aesthetics of excess to explore a migrant experience through the lens of affect.
IMPORTANT: We will begin allowing access to the webinar at 3:55 pm PDT. Once the Zoom capacity for the webinar has reached its limit of 100 attendees, those unable to access the webinar can view the conversation via livestream at CRG's Facebook Page.
