It’s LitCrawl Time Again!
We are super honored to be working with KQED and LitQuake once more, to bring you a taste of DEMG during their annual big LitCrawl show! Join us Oct 14th at The Laundry, 3359 26th Street San Francisco, during the third leg of LitCrawl! 8 PM! This show is titled “¡Bad Immigrants!” and will bring you literary performances from immigrant writers on the strength, hilarity, and humanity of being an immigrant. With performances by: Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Amanda Muñiz, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and Camilo Villa.
Ingrid Rojas Contreras is a Colombian writer based in San Francisco. Her debut novel, Fruit of the Drunken Tree, is forthcoming in 2018. Her work has appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Electric Literature, and Guernica, among others.She is the book columnist for KQED and currently teaches Fiction at the University of San Francisco.
Camilo Villa is a Colombian artist and poet based in Oakland, California. He has performed in venues, such as The Queer Open Mic and Donde esta mí gente. Camilo holds a Fine Arts Degree with a minor in Social Action & Public Forms from the California College of the Arts.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is an artist of mixed Pakistani and Lebanese descent. He has performed with Radar Productions, The Stud, throughout the U.S, Colombia, Pakistan and Dubai. Some of you might ask, why Zulfi is performing with us, and we’re like, why not? Though, DEMG is a Latinx Performance showcase, we invited Zulfikar to join us in solidarity with our queer Muslim immigrant siblings. As pocs we should support each other and make space for each other, also DEMG is a huge fan of Zulfikar, his work is incredible. DEMG stands with all immigrants.
Amanda Muñiz is a writer from Puebla, Mexico currently studying English Literature and Latino Studies at San Francisco State. She is inspired by her parents, the migrant experience, the land she has trekked over, and chisme.
hosting yet again, the creator of ¿DEMG?, writer, performer, and standup comedian Baruch Porras Hernandez
