Polly Sara

Polly is a Queer, Chilean-Syrian immigrant who makes art because BIG fucking love is simply too big to hold alone. A love letter to ache, to dreaming and all that runs bone deep, they perform, write or make whatever feels good. Their work is a hope prayer; a communion to all the queers, the migrants, the misfits and the ones with love too heavy to hold. May our time together be big, may it feel like a party, may it be fucking real and may it exist solely for us. Because of us.
