ARTIST AT SLAP//2

CYNTHIA RODRIGUEZ

 

 

Mexican-British writer and performer based in Leicester,

constantly experimenting with the possibilities of spoken word.

 

International, intersectional and interdisciplinary.

 

Using poetry to convey everyday realities that may remain untold in media; particularly about feminist and queer issues, cultural and countercultural shock, mental health and self-preservation.

 

As a spoken word performer, they have opened for renowned artists such as Lydia Towsey, Caroline Bird, Travis Alabanza and Jamie Thrasivolou. They have also been published on zines such as Mouthy Poets Queer Zine and Black Flamingo edited by Dean Atta (the latter in collaborations with Tate Britain) and the anti-xenophobia Do Something edited by Selina Lock. Two of their poems were featured in Welcome to Leicester, anthology edited by Emma Lee and Ambrose Musiyiwa for Dahlia Publishing.
