Stops include: Los Angeles, Tucson, Gallup, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Chicago, Pittsburgh and NYC! Catch them at a show along the way. They will be sharing poems and selling migrant & indigenous prints and merch.

SOLASTALGIA: (n.) The pain experienced when the place where one resides or one loves is under immediate assault.
SOLASTALGIA: a queer eco-feminist poetry tour featuring the transdisciplinary works and performances of Chinese-American migrant artist Jess X. Chen and Indigenous Diné artist Demian DinéYazhi founder of RISE: Radical Indigenous Survivance & Empowerment. Their work is a reclamation of inherited lands, ancestors, and cultures lost to post-apocalyptic colonial violence. Through poetry they create indigenous and immigrant futures in the time of our current ecological collapse.  Join us for an evening of time travel, queerness, love, trauma, fantasy, and survivance.
