Show Ring / Vanished Vibrations
This site-specific dance performance inspired by ongoing research on the
embodied memory of female-gendered violence victims in the Mexican
Our interest in creating this piece was to use art as a medium to bound up with individual reflection to affect the experience related to gender violence. According to the Israeli historian Yuval Noah Harari, three distinctive and indisputable elements have allowed the unification of humanity in a global sense, regardless of its origin, latitude, and belief system: capitalism, religion, and patriarchy. Historically, the binary gender system accompanying the patriarchal order has considered women and all those who do not align with the social norm inferior, less valuable, and different.
This artwork honors the many female victims of discrimination, violence, and murder among our Latinx/Chicanx/Hispanic and Native American communities. This project was supported by the Center of Latin American Studies
at the University of Utah and the Tinker Foundation.
