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, queer/trans theories and post-colonial identities. 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)
