In conclusion of their Mazza Writer in Residence week of teaching and events, October 1`–6, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta will stage an original performance, in collaboration with Kyle Parker, at San Francisco's "bookstore in the hub," The Green Arcade. Supported by a grant from the Sam Mazza Foundation, this event is free and open to the public. Please do join us!
A Nicaraguan Californian via Mexico raised both in Huntington Park and Highland Park neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta lives in a rent controlled apartment in the Mission District of San Francisco. An artist, writer, reproductive justice activist, patient advocate, and lapsed full spectrum doula who supports themself through working at a neighborhood cafe and cleaning houses, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta’s work attempts, as fellow poet Lauren Levin writes, to “include direct revolutionary action, up to and including revolutionary violence, as part of a continuum of care, and their use of this redefinition of care-work to rethink gendered paradigms.” Their first book, The Easy Body, was published by Oakland queer art & publishing collective Timeless, Infinite Light in 2017.
