Performances by

Marcel Bercovivi - Marcela grew up mostly in Guatemala and Honduras where she experimented with cheerleading, gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics but was constantly told her body was too bendy for such disciplines. She later moved to Italy where she discovered the world of aerial arts and attended her first-ever pole class. When she moved to Portland she discovered her true calling in the art of Contortion. She now teaches contortion, flexibility, and pole at Ecdysiast in downtown Portland and performs at Dantes Sinferno among many other venues around the Portland area.

Makers de Mayo

“This Cinco de Mayo, spend your day supporting local BIPOC makers at Makers de Mayo: a decolonized market and celebration hosted by Noche Libre and the Portland Mercado.

By now many people have learned that Cinco de Mayo is a celebration honoring the Battle of Puebla, in which Mexican armies defeated the French. However, the celebration came to the United States in the 1960's as a direct result of Chicanx activists seeking to highlight an event representing strength and resilience as the army that overthrew the French were indigenous and far outnumbered, yet still persevered. By the 1980's, however, alcohol corporations capitalized on the event, seeing it as a marketing opportunity to target Latinx communities.

So, this Cinco de Mayo, shop for goods made by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color makers, eat delicious food, and soak in sounds provided by the Noche Libre Latinx DJ collective. “
