Writer-performer Raquel Almazan’s solo spoof, Porning the Planet: The De-Sensitization of a Nation considers how pornographic imagery infuses how we look at things, whether we realize it or not. Imagine NASA producing a film titled Porning the Planet starring a woman name Sensora. Her metamorphosis goes from glam porn star to political intrigue to being sent into outer space. Her violent fantasies and daily behavior are downloaded for mass consumption. Inspired by books by Jane Caputi and Ariel Levy.

This La Lucha Arts Group production is brought here by Pangea World Theater. New Yorker Almazan shares “working with Pangea was one of the first instances that as an artist I could speak freely and openly about the challenges of being an artist of color. A vital dialogue on the environment and structure that Pangea provides began and it opened new understandings for me on the conditions in which art flourishes.”
