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 in the installation are activated for the performance 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. Theater and political resistance continues to be a line of research for Ramírez-Figueroa.

Performers include Nao Bustamante, Sebastian Hernandez, Pedro Jiménez, Nicolette Henry, and Marcus Kuiland-Nazario.
