2018: Collaborative Performances


The medium of ICE

Rafa Esparza + Keijaun Thomas + Fanna + Cassils

For the opening of their November 2018 solo show at the Station Museum in Houston, Texas, Cassils invited three other artists to collaborate on Solution, a live performance that reinterprets and expands Tiresias. Cassils collaborated with Rafa Esparza, Keijaun Thomas, and Fanna, artists whose subject positions differ but whose civil rights are all being eroded under the current US administration. In this political climate, expanding and reimagining Tiresias to incorporate other performing bodies and working with the medium of ICE in Texas speaks of the coming together of diverging expressions, the power of performative actions, and the generation of collective creative forces.
