Raquel Gutierrez

Raquel Gutierrez is a community based performance writer and cultural activist. She is a co-founding member of the queer performance art ensemble, Butchlalis de Panochtitlan, and has written their first play currently in production called The Barber of East L.A., commissioned by a humanities initiative at USC that enabled the troupe to work with Luis Alfaro. Gutierrez has performed nationally with Butchlalis and is published in small poetry and academic journals such as Cipactli out of San Francisco State University and the anthology Izote Vos: Salvadoran American Literary and Visual Art (Pacific News, San Francisco). Currently working on her first solo performance called Malathion: Low Human Toxicity. This piece is homage to the communities of Huntington Park, Bell, Bell Gardens, Cudahy, Maywood and Vernon where Gutierrez spent her formative years, as well as a commentary on the absence of race and class in the mainstream green and environmental discourses. This delicate passage is shared through the striking lenses of memory, political failures and radical possibility.
