Performing vignettes based on her critical sex writing and erotica, Otálvaro-Hormillosa inspires sensual thinking and dialogue around gender, race, and sex. In Psychic Gold, she stages images of desire and converses with historical and contemporary figures like Freud, Sor Juana, and men of different backgrounds to reflect on female “masculinities.” The performance premiered at the 2015 This Is What I Want Festival at CounterPulse in San Francisco.
