A short performance about heartbreak and transgressions and what happens when you don’t heed the warnings of friends who tell you that you’re not supposed to shit where you eat where you fuck where you work. Well, what happens to me.

Performed during a special night of Trasnocheo organized in memory of José Esteban Muñoz. Curated by Tavia Nyong'o, Jack Halberstam, and Macarena Gomez-Barris


A short performance film re-imagining Streisand and Diamond’s hit duet, “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.”
