On May 3, at 4:15 p.m. Torres performed a dance in between and on top of Montiel’s soil stencils.

Torres invited the audience to make sounds through looped recordings as the soundtrack to her dance. By democratically harnessing a multiplicity of voices, Torres’ performance investigated the contemporary Latinx body and its history of diaspora.
