Guatemalan artist Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa’s participation in A Universal History of Infamy is an installation and a performance titled El Corazón del espantapájaros (Heart of the Scarecrow), after a play by Guatemalan playwright Hugo Carrillo. The costumes and props used in the performance are part of the installation, which is activated by five L.A.-based performers working under the direction of the artist. Despite the critical success of the play in the 1960s, a 1975 student production faced brutal repression and censorship, which led to the cancellation of the show and the company’s entire theatrical season.

Performers include Nao Bustamante, Sebastian Hernandez, Pedro Jimenez, Marcus Kuiland-Nazario, and Jordan Puryear.
