MIgrations is a series of oral accounts of two individuals’ immigration stories. These histories are performed for the lens by Thahab, who is juxtaposed to the narratives.
For Borderlands Symposium, I propose to screen Migrations as well as give context to their stories. The program should last 30-45 minutes: 20 minutes for screenings with 5 minute introductions and post-screening Q+A session.

Glitch in the System: Green Screen for Imagined Utopias:
We want to embrace being the glitch in the system with you! Using a camera, the Internet, and a green screen we will utilize our collective imaginations to make a video that explores hopes, desires and ideas for what the future can hold. This is an opportunity for a cathartic experience in which we address the ways our bodies are mediated and actively break boundaries with ourselves and others through glitch as queer aesthetics.

Loved screening at and documenting 2014's Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival, looking forward to coming back this year to Document and soak up more inspiration in Chicago
The individuals in Transient Vessels have lived and worked in both D.C. and Boston. These works comment on gender, sexuality, and class: they use live action in earnest dialogue to address power and privilege. These works are overtly and covertly political.
