Paula Violeta Luna
Luna is a San Francisco-based performance artist. Her works reflect and inquire upon the relationship between theatre, performance art and community engagement. Working in a multidisciplinary space that allows for the crossing of aesthetic and conceptual borders, Luna uses her body as a territory to question and comment on social and political phenomena. She has performed and taught workshops in the U.S. and abroad in places ranging from the Bay Area to most of Latin America, as well as in countries such as Rwanda, Egypt, India, New Zealand, Japan, and Canada to name a few. Luna’s work has also been featured in several recent and forthcoming books like “Performing Ground: Space, Camouflage and the arts of Blending In,” and “Freak Performance: dissidence in Latin America Theater.” Her collaborations include work with the Bay Area-based immigrant women’s rights organizations Mujeres Unidas y Activas and La Colectiva de Mujeres, as well as the performances collectives La Pocha Nostra y Secos & Mojados. Luna is a Creative Capital and National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) Fellow.
