Mestiza Consciousness - A Film by Kiri Avelar

“Mestiza Consciousness” is an interactive screendance that considers gestures, symbols, and sounds that speak to the in-between space, and is inspired by the work of Chicana feminist scholar, Gloria Anzaldúa, and Mexican-American dance artists Franchesca Marisol Cabrera and Michelle Manzanales. This screendance premiered at El Barrio’s Artspace PS109 on April 13, 2019 as part of “Descubrimiento: Voice, Place, Identity”.
