Elysia Crampton Performance

  • Eyedrum Gallery-Rooftop 88 Forsyth Street Southwest Atlanta, GA, 30303 United States (map)

A Time Slide into the Future is a play that unfolds as a DJ production and performance that works alongside Demon City (Crampton’s sophomore album). The narrative follows Aymara Revolutionary, Bartolina Sisa’s limbs after they were severed, continuing from the perspective of the entrails as they turn into stone, petrified on a time slide into a distant future where the sun has gone out and trans-humanoid arachnids have inherited a world free of the prison industrial complex. The work is Elysia’s attempt to bridge the Aymara oral history tradition/theater legacy with her own trans-femme abolitionist grasp of futurity, always amidst the cataclysmic, irreducible horizon of coloniality.
