sweat/takeastepbackandbreathe, is performance project based on the Black Diaries written by the English diplomat, Roger Casement. The Black Diaries, written during his trips to the Congo and Brazil. The project addresses colonialism and desire through a queer lens. The multilingual performance clashes high art against queer slang, playing with language, music and double entendres particular to Latino and Black underground gay culture.
