March 4: Artist Elyla Sinverguenza to Present Nicaraguan Experience of Healing

Nicaraguan queer performance artist Elyla Sinverguenza will present a dramatic performance of “Saint Peter – Duck Pulling” on Wednesday, March 4, at 7 p.m. in Bucknell’s Tustin Studio Theatre. The event is presented by both Bucknell’s Samek Art Museum and Department of Theatre & Dance.

Growing up in rural Nicaragua, Sinverguenza endured the country’s toxic and ongoing legacy of colonialism. In their visceral performance piece, Sinverguenza transforms a violent ritual from the country’s patriarchal tradition into an immersive experience of healing.
