X if it’s true that the ancient founders chose the site after consulting the omens, then, and also because we have lived there a long time, the place is so sacred to us that we cannot abandon it.

The Houston-based performance group Los Performeros present La Tierra Tuya Es Una Digna Sepultura in which by virtue of collective memory, history, and Tierra, a once solidly engineered parking lot transmutes into past, present, and future forms of itself (excavated to find the breath of its haunting.) The resulting development serves as a vector signaling a sanctified space of resistance against capitalist and colonialist erasure under the guise of progress and expansion.
“We envisioned la Tierra as a public space that respects the existing context, weaving together community gathering spaces and porous buildings that welcome neighbors and guests.” Los Performeros said in a release.
