Guadalupe Maravilla's Disease Thrower @ The Knockdown Center | New York | United States

Disease Thrower is the final work of a performance trilogy based on Gaudalupe Maravilla’s autobiography. The first part, titled The OG of Undocumented Children (performed at the Whitney Museum in 2018) told the story of how Maravilla became an undocumented and unaccompanied child immigrant. The second part, titled Walk on Water (performed at the Queens Museum in 2019), focuses on Maravilla’s past as an undocumented immigrant, the deportations his family endured, and methods for healing. The final performance of the trilogy, Disease Thrower, will center on how the trauma of Maravilla’s border crossing manifested into cancer and the ways he overcame the disease.

Disease Thrower is commissioned by Knockdown Center and presented in partnership with The Chocolate Factory Theater. Commissioning support also provided by The MAP Fund.
