Mana Bugallo will be performing Letters of a Compass, organized by LAZO Collective
LAZO (in Spanish meaning ‘tie’ or ‘link’) is an art collective that brings together artists and related practitioners of Latin American & Caribbean descent to create participatory projects and exhibitions. LAZO’s members are Rodrigo Moreira, Claudia Cortínez, Mauricio Cortes Ortega, and Alva Mooses. On this occasion, LAZO will present an installation of projected images and textures, both analog and digital, activated by Mana Bugallo, an Argentine NYC-based poet, performer, singer and activist. Mana’s performances combine elements of spoken word and lyrical performative experimentation, blending poetry and music into narrative fragments that recall childhood memories, sexuality, and humorings on everyday life.
$50 = one ticket
$100 = two tickets plus a third for free, three tickets total!
$150 = one ticket and a benefit print edition of your choosing
If you have any questions, have difficulty checking out, or if you would like to attend but the ticket price is not feasible for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
