About the Program

A performance piece further exploring the persona La Abortada, who performed the previous piece Western Lard: Fall of the American Hamburger. In this new piece, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa explores Freudian theories of sexuality and modernist theories of abject sexuality.

This performance was part of the Fluid Sexuality Series, exploring sexuality that lives beyond constructions of gender, sexual orientation descriptions, role-playing, and societal definitions of the body, beauty, and desire. Definitions of sexuality need not be only limited to the body, but include sexuality as it exists in less tangible forms - independent of human presence or interaction. The Fluid Sexuality Series was curated by Irene Loughlin and Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, and was hosted by Gallery Gachet.
