FLAMBOYAN is an open gallery combining elements of performance art that explores the emotional and physical sacrifices imposed on Puerto Rican women in order to come into womanhood. This story is woven through poetry and ritual using Puerto Rican traditions of brujeria,santeria and a connection to spirits. Using the body as tool, instrument, and temple, the artist engages the audience with a confrontation of pain in growth, forgiveness, and hate. Who do we honor in our lives? Who do we condemn? And, most importantly, what do we choose to do for who?
