Mapuche artist Sebastián Calfuqueo presents a performance workshop that aims to provide tools for the conceptualisation and reflection on the body from an intersectional perspective. Departing from the history of Latin American performance art and its various forms of resistance to colonialism, participants will explore how gendered and racialised bodies affirm themselves in the context of the Southern Cone and beyond.

Calfuqueo will also present a live performance at Gasworks on Tuesday 1 March.

Presented in partnership with Latin Elephant, as part of the programme Inhabiting Spaces (2021-2022). Supported by the Arts Council England, this programme aims to enable access and increase participation in the arts by the Latin American communities in the UK.
