The Bag Lady Manifesta

In a world that treats Black life as if it’s disposable, The Bag Lady is an urgent reckoning and revelation.

Don’t miss the national tour launch of The Bag Lady Manifesta. In this multimedia performance ritual, artist/activist Taja Lindley adorns her Black, queer, female body with trash bags to traverse the dumping grounds and shadow side(s) of herself, the audience, and the United States.

Then the Bag Lady will invite you into a participatory ritual, where audiences are invited to (re)consider what to let go of, and what to remember–individually and collectively.


FRI & SAT, MAY 18-19, 2018 // 7:30pm

The Bag Lady is the accumulation of discarded lives and abandoned histories reeking havoc on the amnesia, the forgetting, the erasure, and the silencing. Remembering is the responsibility of the living. Are you doing your work? Because an unacknowledged history produces ghosts.
