Butterfly: Una Transformacion
May 17 @ 7:00 pm - May 18 @ 9:00 pm
Metamorphosis is an unapologetic act of faith.
Queer Trans People of Color journey around the topic of reclaiming and rebirthing spirituality within their queer communities through spoken word, poetry, and music. Witness how each artist crosses a rainbow bridge that interconnects sexuality and spirituality by embodying their own unique transformation.
La Espiritista’s ‘Butterfly: Una Transformacion’ is a celebration for the release of their first self-published book of poetry. This pre-release show features original pieces and spoken word music from the book, as well as other QTPOC artists.
Both the book and show is invested in the healing arts and is committed to creating messages of radical self-love, faith, and healing, especially for those in trans, queer, and poc communities.
‘Butterfly: Una Transformacion’ is about integration of past, present, and future, dark and light, masculine and feminine, spirituality and sexuality, and all in between. Both the show and book is divided into four sequences representing the four phases of metamorphosis. Each phase speaks about a distinct stage in the transformation process. Releasing old wounds. Renewing loving joy. Retreating into our darkest selves. Rebirthing into a new being. Butterfly: Una Transformacion takes the audience through a journey of the natural cycle of life and the gifts that can ultimately arise through death
‘Butterfly: Una Transformacion’ contains illustrations by Nur Shojai and will be available during the show.
