the witness of suffering & the power to transform.
Through performance, sound, and video, Saakred has been probing interests in both scholars and punk aficianados alike. Pushing in and out of gender performativity and post-colonial identity, what began as an earnest attempt at self-healing, quickly grew into a conceptual stage for testing the limits of public vulnerability and sensorial experimentalism. Through dynamic and confrontational modalities, the 28-year-old SA native has been described as one of San Antonio's "most original and intense performers" (SA Current).
Saakred as performance project has been featured locally, regionally & nationally including The Empire Theater, Navajo Nation Museum, Maverick Music Fest, Luminaria Arts Festival, Stargazer Fest & more ... bills shared with
experimental duo Coco Rosie, California-based duo Prayers Copenhagen's Iceage & supporting act for Venezuelan singer-songwriter Devendra Banhart.
