//Out of Pocket//
A performance that attempts to create a non narrative experience of the vibrational transition and tension between the material and immaterial that occurs within intimacy.

//Wendy Trevino//
Wendy Trevino was born & raised in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. She now lives and works in San Francisco. Her chapbook 128-131 was published by Perfect Lovers Press in 2013. Her chapbook Brazilian Is Not a Race was published by Commune Editions in 2016. Her poems have appeared in various print and online journals, including Abraham Lincoln, Armed Cell, the Capilano Review, LIES, Macaroni Necklace, Mondo Bummer, ELDERLY, and Open House. Wendy is not an experimental writer.

More about the new release: Disaster is an investigation into what is possible when everything goes perfectly wrong; when planes crash, trains derail, and structures collapse. The details are put forward as a way to examine how each disaster is mourned as a catastrophic exception to the order of things. Ultimately, looking at these events creates space to explore the connection between the collective trauma experienced in the wake of a large scale disaster and a personal story of mourning.
