tenemos la responsabilidad to hold one another
A collaborative writing and performance project with Ellis Peréz and Baki Porter as part of the Lake Street Story Circles created for Pangea World Theatre. This work was created in the summer and fall of 2020, filled with love, pain, and missing one another.
Created with artist Kieran Myles Andrés Tverbakk for Barebones' OFFERINGS in fall of 2020 in partnership with Teatro del Pueblo. Using Johanna's poetry and Kieran's expertise with found-material sculpture an altar was created to physically hold some of the emotions on Lake Street. The artists salvaged rubble being cleared away from the uprisings on Lake after the death of George Floyd as a base for this alter/planter.
