In conjunction with LatinXAmerican, Marcela Torres performs world-in-the-song as part of Fire Drilling, an ongoing performance project that explores tobacco’s relationship to Latinidad and how western ideologies of capitalism transformed the resource of enlightenment into enslavement, displacement, illness, and diaspora. world-in-the-song focuses on original preparations of the master plant, centered on Indigenous cosmologies through tobacco pastes, snuff, and juices.
