The Bag Lady Manifesta
Performed by artist/activist/healer Taja Lindley, THE BAG LADY MANIFESTA features an immersive installation of memory, followed by a participatory performance ritual where you'll be invited to (re)consider what to let go of, and what to remember individually and collectively.
As you move through a community fellowship hall, Lindley uses dynamic movement, burlesque, text, soundscapes, ritual, and projection to adorn and activate her Black, queer, female body with trash bags, as she traverses the dumping grounds and shadow side(s) of herself, the audience, and the United States.
The BAG LADY is the accumulation of discarded lives and abandoned histories--reeking havoc on the amnesia, the forgetting, the erasure, and the silencing.
Remembering is the responsibility of the living. Are you doing your work? Because an unacknowledged history produces ghosts.
