Performance: MoCADA presents “Even the palms, dem bow”


The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) will host a performance—“Even the palms, dem bow”—on Sunday, September 20, 2015, at 3:00pm. The museum is located at 80 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, New York. “Even the palms, dem bow” will be the final performance presented as a part of Field Notes: Extracts, which closes to the public on September 27, 2015.

Description: Joiri Minaya and Ian Deleón explore moments of queer performativity, disidentification and decolonization within Latin American / Caribbean popular heteronormativity. Drawing from the transnational influences of dancehall, dembow and reggaeton, as well as the eroticized propaganda of the regional palm tree, the artists will attempt to wine with these cultural signifiers and tease out their liberatory potentialities.”
