BORDER TRIP(tych) / TRIP(tico) de la frontera – The project aimed at generating a ritual/visual narrative focused on an immigrant’s journey as she leaves her home in Latin America and arrives in the US looking for a chance to make positive changes in her life.
Our process involved the separate development of the three parts of the triptych based on the migration journey: parting, crossing, and integrating –or not, into a new cultural context. The goal all along is to render elements of an immigrant’s reality and consciousness through a poetic lens.
With wonderful support and funding from a Creative Capital grant, we developed and performed part one and part two of this trilogy, “Buried in the Body of Remembrance / Enterrada en el cuerpo del recuerdo” and “A Body Parted: Shrapnel of Present Time / Esquirlas de tiempo presente” (in collaboration with V.Cartagena and A.Trimis,) and performed it in different venues in Latin America and the US.
