The editors would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the contributors to this digital collection who shared thoughtful and powerful writing, images, and video for publication.

The shape of this book was determined in collaboration with Nicolle Amyotte, Christina Hajjar, and Monica Martinez.

We are grateful for the support we received from The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics and would like the thank everyone who makes the Gesture series at HemiPress possible.
