About the Project

The Anastasio Project is a multidisciplinary public performance work that kickstarts an investigation of race relations, state brutality, and border violence using the stories of Anastasio Hernandez-Rojas and Oscar Grant as points of departure. Hernandez-Rojas was a Mexican national who was detained at the US-Mexico border in May 2010 who was killed by a dozen Customs and Border Patrol agents. Oscar Grant was an unarmed African-American youth killed by BART police in 2009. Navarrete x Kajiyama Dance Theater will create a multi-disciplinary performance work in collaboration with muralist Leslie Lopez and video artist Steven Sanchez.
