This performance explores the decolonization of patriarchal infrastructures and environments through performance ritual and sound art. Artists, SAMMAY, Layel Camargo, Erika Vivianna Céspedes, and Alejandra Fernandez García, reclaim, commune, and connect with disappeared histories by unearthing what has been buried and hidden beneath colonization. It is a reclaiming of ancestral lands, a returning to the matriarchal infrastructures that kept the land fertile, vibrant and protected. The pronounced, regal architectural structure of Grace Cathedral, the third largest cathedral in the country, stands upon lands that once belonged to and were governed by the Yelamu and Ohlone Peoples. This experience will take you on a journey of decolonization and spirituality through the intersections of performance ritual art and an indigenous soundscape. A reemergence of spirit and native tones through dance and music, unraveling urban colonization.
