A productive opposition to fascism means examining the banana, un-flattening its historical roots that connect this global product to land use, sex symbolism, white supremacy, climate change, children’s television shows, etc ~~~ a prolonged look at how we might re-grow a culture of exchange and diversity.
Join us for a night of sound and visuals as incantations for a radical banana future as we take inventory of what seeds we can sow.
