Written and directed by Mexico City artist Naomi Rincón Gallardo, «The Formaldehyde Trip» is a cycle of songs and videos dedicated to murdered Mixtec activist Alberta “Bety” Cariño, performed live with crafty and ornate props, and echoes from Mexican B-side Sci-Fi films of the 60s and 70s. The work imagines Bety Cariño’s journey through the underworld where she encounters women warriors, witches and widows, the dual-gendered goddess of death and animals preparing her rebirth party. An axolotl (Mexican salamander) in formaldehyde is the storyteller who agitates between fact, fiction and friction.

Vocals: Danishta Rivero, David Katz, San Cha | Drums: Marin \ Composer: Federico Schmucler | Vocal effect processing: David Molina | Writer & Direcor: Naomi Rincón Gallardo

This performance is included in the Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA organized by REDCAT — Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, and is the first program in The Broad’s continuing «En Cuatro Patas» Latinx feminist performance series. #PSTinLA
