Beloved: A Requiem for Our Dead

As the final night to the Hecho en Califas Festival, the queer and trans people of color performance crew, Mangos with Chili, presented the work Beloved. It was a night  to honor and remember those that were lost and a celebration of survival and healing.

The night featured many different performers in a wide range of acts from dancing to story telling and spoken word, to cabaret and music and singing.

Video also played a key part in the performance both as a backdrop and as a featured medium to tell their story. It was a powerful night filled with deep emotions and performers who held nothing back.
