Guayabo

Guayabo (Venezuelan slang for “heartbreak”) is a grief party connecting people in England with Ania's family in Venezuela, who are immersed in the severe humanitarian crisis of the country, through the long-distance exchange of rituals of celebration and grief.

 

It's a meeting point to recognise together the reality of migration and its hardship, the perseverance and richness of our common losses and the opportunities found in facing grief collectively.

 

Premiered at the SPILL Festival of Performance, 2018.

Part of the SPILL OPEN, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
