Ni Aquí Ni Allá is a multimedia performance and installation giving voice to Atlanta's Latinx community. We will revisit our childhood memories, our family traditions, our spiritual roots through a lens polished with subversion and decolonization. These are the moments that colored our lives and firmly grounded us in the cultures and narratives we have become geographically removed from. Ni Aquí Ni Allá is a window onto a vital facet of American culture, and we welcome people of all backgrounds to indulge in our uniquely American blend of Latin cultures and traditions, uprooted and replanted. Through nostalgia and symbolic repurposing, Ni Aquí Ni Allá is a space for defining, decolonizing, and reclaiming our Latinx identity in all of its prismatic splendor. Come into our home, listen to our stories colored in Spanglish, perreo if the mood strikes you. *Latinx is a gender-inclusive term referring to people of Latin American descent.
The show will take place in a multiple room venue in which each room will function as a gallery space featuring a durational performance, tableau, or experience that attendees will be invited to watch and/or participate in at their discretion while meandering throughout the galleries at their own pace.
