In conjunction with I saw the future, it's so wonderful, there are Puerto Ricans

MaríaJosé will revisit the audio La FUTURA and through sound and movement respond and build on her memories of who she was back then. Since 2019, when MaríaJosé spoke at the Ricky Renuncia Protests, she has undergone físical, spiritual and emotional changes that have created distances and proximities to who she was back then. MaríaJosé believes this is an opportunity to not only reflect on the past, but to explore and manifest future possibilities of the self. The event will take place in the balcony of Taller Comunidad La Goyco.

MaríaJosé is an artist and activist whose practice deals with identity, gender, and race, combining autobiographical and diaristic aspects with elements of fantasy. They are currently the matriarch of the recently formed House of Grace, a trans-feminist anti racist collective with members across Puerto Rico.
