Cut Piece

An homage to Yoko Ono, in my Cut Piece I read from a scroll inscribed with news clippings about sexual violence in Tijuana. Some people cut with care, others with anger. This piece grew into a community project in Nicaragua in which I presented the piece to groups of women who had suffered violence and then afterwards we had discussions supported by a psychotherapist.

 

Performance Sites: La Alborada, Tijuana, Mexico; various police stations and community centers, Managua, Nicaragua.
