Sawyer Yards presents OME
Artists Daniela Riojas and Zachary Fabri will examine a dual Mestizaje and Afro-Latinx experience during their site-specific performance ŌME. The interdisciplinary production that merges movement, music and installation will express the historical encounters between Indigenous and African peoples, focusing on pre-Columbian evidence of their connection through water travel and the subsequent brown/black impacts during Iberian colonialism.
Funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance, ŌME is part of the citywide Latino Art Now! conference designed to explore the richness and depth of Latinx art.
