In order of appearance:

LGB, Kalvin J, Mz. Jolie, Nova, Gabby, Shandhra: Dallas Poetry Slam
2019 Dallas Poetry Slam Team performs highlights of their team performance work.

Laney Yarber: Giving Up The Farm; Part 2-Skin Care
Laney Yarber performs a vignette history that fuses personal and Texas history, using props, composed interviews and storytelling audio elements.

Randall Garrett: Un Corazón Dos Piezas
Garrett performs a travelogue drawn from his cultural and social interactions in Mexico City’s Neza barrio.

Tammy Melody Gomez: Doña Marina, also known as “Malintzin” and “La Malinche,” attained mythical stature because of her association with Hernan Cortes–as his personal translator during the conquest of Mexico. In MALINCHUCA: THE MALINCHE SPEAKS, Doña Marina reappears as a mad-as-hell ‘chuca with a tongue-lashing for historical revisionists. 

Abel Flores Jr: Polar Self
AFJ appeals to the metaphysical elements of the self by capturing his persona between live video and human presence. By subsiding an attachment to identity, he invites higher consciousness to intervene through means of ritualistic movement and the natural elements: earth and air.
