About This Artist

Javier Stell-Fresquez (Chican@, Tigua & Piro Native), Ivan “Ivy” Monteiro (Brasil), and Davia Amerasu Spain (San Francisco Bay Area native), compose a trinity of young, fierce, POC femme artists. Our collective expertise spans theater, sound and video production, dance, and organizing, as well as drag, among other forms that our queer ancestors developed in queer nightlife spaces, and backyard family barbecues.

Applying intersectional and intertribal methods, we set our triune gaze on the landfill that is our present society. Holding up umbilical and ancestral knowledge as we decolonize the future, our very existence and emergent voices defy neocolonialism, white supremacy, and patriarchy.

About This Project

Mother The Verb is a Queer/Trans performance dance, produced and created by Ivan Monteiro (Brasil), Javier Stell-Fresquez (Chican@ originally from El Paso, Tigua & Piro Native), and Davia Amerasu Spain (San Francisco Bay Area native), a trinity of young, fierce, POC femmes fucking up post-colonialism, white supremacy and patriarchy one breath at a time. This trinity will be making a new experimental performance piece exploring the glorification and damnation of our many mothers, asking how we can transcend the toxins flowing in our bodies and societies.
