Our Evening Features:
Performance Art by Paula Kohatsu
Paula Kohatsu is a holistic health-coach focusing in Women's Health and Sacred Sexuality and a performance artist. One of her life passions is to help to eradicate sexual ignorance by bringing consciousness into intimacy.
She will be performing "The Flower of My Being" which explores vulnerability as power. Paula invites artist interaction so both artist and participant have equal roles in the final piece.
In New York City where she lived for 10 years she performed extensively in places such as The Brooklyn Museum, White Box Gallery, Frederico Seve Gallery, Anarchist Art Lab, and many more.
Her performances are ritualistic, ceremonial and encourage audience participation. She uses voice, breath, poetry, movement, stillness, paint, paper and food to awaken the senses and invite experience.

Mónica started writing poetry and short stories at a very young age, as an outlet for her overwhelming emotions that couldn’t comprehend Most of her inspiration comes from her passion to express the deepest and most raw human feelings; combined with her upbringing in a country with economic disparities, but also a fervent desire for justice and community building.

Cartography of Femininity: Walking the Labyrinth
A performance Art piece by Adriana Rondón
A personal look at femininity, an exploration of personal and collective ideas about what it is to be a woman. An act of healing from the body.
"My work is about my healing journey and it is related to the people. Performances and poetic actions that use movement, elements of the plastic arts and technological resources as means of expression. My artistic proposal is nourished by dance, yoga and my meditations. I am interested in the social fabric and I want to project it in my artistic work. I love to use the streets as scenario and allow the participation of the spectators in my work."
Featuring the Fine Art of Kyra Coates, Marika Popovits, Pam Uhlenkamp, and Joseph Cassarino
