Comrade, Bliss ain´t playing
On times of uncertainty and despair. Go within. Go to beauty.
In Fact, for our mental sanity...we must reside there-and as artists, create from there.
“Good dreams wake me up with precise words.
on my lover’s torso.
Religion versed naked”
Josefina Báez shares in “Comrade, Bliss ain’t playing”, a performance theatre text, a performance poetry of an urban
devotee. The work is an intimate journey dressed up with a beautiful vulnerability, taking us to meet her one and only real love, passing thru contradictions and blessings and leaving us at the beginning of sound. She does not shy away from her opinions on current issues, making her altar accessible and her spiritual practice a concrete dialogue.
Josefina Báez is a gifted writer and performer.
Scholars and the audience at large have been delighted locally, nationally and internationally by her unique language.

¨De bons rêves me réveillent
avec de précis poèmes.
Des graines de grenade
sur la poitrine de mon amant.
Une religion en vers toute nue¨.
