Marcela Torres: Fire Drilling presented by the DePaul Art Museum

June 12, 2021 | 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

In conjunction with LatinXAmerican, Marcela Torres performs world-in-the-song as part of Fire Drilling, an ongoing performance project that explores tobacco’s relationship to Latinidad and how western ideologies of capitalism transformed the resource of enlightenment into enslavement, displacement, illness, and diaspora. world-in-the-song focuses on original preparations of the master plant, centered on Indigenous cosmologies through tobacco pastes, snuff, and juices.

In addition to streaming this event virtually, we will have 10 tickets available for those who wish to attend in person. To reserve a spot please email by June 9.
