Written and directed by Mexico City artist Naomi Rincón Gallardo, The Formaldehyde Trip is a cycle of songs and videos dedicated to murdered Mixtec activist Alberta “Bety” Cariño, performed live with crafty and ornate props, and echoes from Mexican B-side Sci-Fi films of the 60s and 70s. The work imagines Bety Cariño’s journey through the underworld where she encounters women warriors, witches and widows, the dual-gendered goddess of death and animals preparing her rebirth party. An axolotl (Mexican salamander) in formaldehyde is the storyteller who agitates between fact, fiction and friction.

This program is part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA, organized by REDCAT, and is part of The Broad’s En Cuatro Patas Latinx feminist performance series.
