Te Voy A Conquistar is a performance based artwork which employs elements of installation to set the stage. Expressing the anxieties endured by Queer members of la gente, Te Voy A Conquistar communicates a need for the expansion of the narrative of Latino identity within the US and beyond. Centering on the pressures of “coming out,” Te Voy A Conquistar is a crescendo of melancholic introspection and boisterous expression. Despite speaking from the perspective of a Gay Chicano, Te Voy A Conquistar invites audience members to consider (or reconsider) their own identities and relationships with gender, and the LGBTX spectrum.
To closeted LGBTX audience members, Te Voy A Conquistar is not a rallying cry to fling open the closet door, to romp around some parade. Te Voy A Conquistar is a nod in your direction, an acknowledgement that you are not alone—that the pain you feel is valid and shared.
