EQUATORS, a performance-installation by TNMOT AZTRO, is a visual exploration of the effects of climate change as seen through the lens of racist social and historical practices that have displaced communities of color, such as segregation, re-zoning, gentrification, and redlining.

Performed in five waves over three days, EQUATORS features a solo performance by choreographer Arien Wilkerson developed from the essay “Operation Astra” by Roland Barthes and is produced in collaboration with installation artist David Borawski and lighting designer Jon-Paul LaRocco. With stacks of white and black industrial buckets, chains hanging from the ceiling, startling effects that viscerally simulate the presence of climate destruction and police presence, EQUATORS is an electrifying display of powerful historical concepts infused with performance and stripped of any didacticism.

EQUATORS depicts how the most marginalized populations on earth experience the adversity associated with weather-related “natural” disasters, environmental waste, zoning policies, and ‘salutogenic’ ways of living. The imagery is propulsive and pugnacious, revealing how our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing is affected by our environment, the deaths that take place in those environments or climates, and how we react to human-made boundaries due to environmental unawareness.

Audience members who attend this work will be asked to interrogate their expectations of climate, human-made boundaries, police violence, bodies living on top of one another, anthropomorphism, queer ecology and environmental waste.
