PERFORMANCE | Nao Bustamante's "Chase Scene" + Rafa Esparza's "Dale"
Nao Bustamante performs “Chase Scene.” This performance intermingles techniques
of cinematic Foley work, with improvisational elements. Bustamante seems to be caught
in a chase scene as she reenacts the old trope of a woman, alone, in the street and
the dangers that lie within.
Following "Chase Scene," Rafa Esparza performs "Dale." Dale means "go," but translates into "give him/her/they". Within the piece, Esparza tosses forward a double of himself — collecting it, embracing it, and then tossing it forward again, repeatedly —on a path around campus. Esparza says, "I'm interested in creating a situation that makes visible the labor of pushing one's self through college especially as a Queer, Brown, first gen student. I'd also like to point towards how these institutions are kept and maintained by Brown folks whom some of the same students have a special affinity with. This is a performance that's thinking about them and these social choreographies constructed by institutional racism."
