“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña
