Originally from South Central Los Angeles, Eva Margarita is an Afro-Latinx performance artist and scholar. Her performance works explore ritual and grief while her critical writings explore race and the census. As an artist, Eva Margarita is concerned with grief and wake work that allows us to accompany, blur lines, and spill all over each other. Her work is guided by the principle that the rituals of everyday life offer a way of existing that acknowledges familial, scholarly, and spiritual methods of becoming. She is currently a Phd Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin and a Board Director at The VORTEX Repertory. Her performances have been featured in Meridians and Time Out New York and her recent work Censual Spillage was awarded Top Contributed Performance at the National Communication Association 2022 conference.
