an experiential installation
lutxa is an immersive, socially-engaged, participatory, multimedia performance that seeks to reconnect with one's self, and create a healthy cycle of interconnectedness, to understand our own self and our effect on our environment/others. It is an experimental practice tempting enlightenment and diminishing unnecessary suffering by recognizing (self-awareness) and fighting (lucha=lutxa) our reactive desires.
lutxa was made possible, in part, by the Franklin Furnace Fund supported by Jerome Foundation, The SHS Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York
Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
