¿Se aculilló? is an ongoing series of performance events and art shows. The phrase, ¿Se aculilló?, is a Colombian taunt that roughly translates to “Are you scared?” More literally, ¿Se aculilló? refers to a sensation of the body clenching or curling inward. This is an open call for people who have origins, ancestral roots, and/or cultural ties to the region known as Latin America, including the Caribbean. This third installment is subtitled La sutura tierna, or “the tender suture.” Artists are asked to consider the body and fear in relationship to this theme. All mediums, including performance/live arts, will be considered. We will also accept proposals for new projects that have not yet been created or performed.

The show will be at AS220 and the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts at Brown University. The AS220 opening is on September 1st, the Granoff Center opening is September 6th. For more information, click here.
