LOVE HURTS
**THIS SHOW IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT, NO TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR DAY OF**


When people tell me love stories they usually mention the first kiss (not the desperation). The first time they knew (not the fear of dying alone). I wish we could talk more about our fear of dying alone. I wish we could be more honest.

Dora Silva Santana is a black Brazilian trans woman warrior, scholar, activist, artist, storyteller of experiences embodied in language and flesh.  She is currently working on a few writing endeavors: her book titled  Trans* Stellar Knot-works on the connections of black trans women in the diaspora; and on her memoir, on the use of her imagination to as black trans child in the northern of Brazil and the transformative process of revisiting those experiences as an adult artist/scholar.. She has been an artist-in-residence for allgo, a queer people of color organization in Austin -TX, in 2018 and 2017. In 2018, she released her watercolor paintings on an exhibit titled Trans* Stellar Visions. In 2017, she presented her solo Performance titled Minha Filha! A black trans daughterhood. Connecting with communities that assure the survival and thriving especially of trans people of color in situations of vulnerability by creating possibilities of dismantling intersecting oppressive systems such as anti-blackness, transphobia, classism, and xenophobia is what moves her.
