As the concluding event of their Mazza Writer in Residence week with The Poetry Center, 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.
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.

Kyle Parker grew up in California's San Gabriel Valley and has performed music as Infinite Body since 2007. He currently lives in Big Sur, folding laundry and cleaning bathrooms at a retreat center known as the birthplace of the human potential movement.
