Poetry. Latinx Studies. THE EASY BODY is a love letter from hell. In these poems, a fiery account of loss combines with a multi-lingual prophecy of stained, stunning beauty. In deep suffering and impure solidarity, the Latinx, matrilineal, colonized body of this text will never be 'easy.' Get ready for the birth of a riot and the death of the world.
Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta is an artist and doula living in California. They work sometimes with the visual, sometimes with movement, sometimes with language, sometimes all three at once. Along with Elana Chavez, they're a founding curator of The Cantíl Reading Series, and with Chavez and Angel Dominguez, a member of La Vidx Locx, a collective of queer Latinx poets. They've taught movement and filmmaking to children and adults alike. Work has been exhibited and performed in Los Angeles and the Bay Area: writing has been published in a chapbook, PDF, by Solar Luxuriance; appeared in Esferas; and featured on the SBSM album JOY/RAGE. A split poetry cassette with Elaine Kahn is due out from Practical Records in 2017. THE EASY BODY is their first book.Author City: SAN FRANCISCO, CA USA
