The “South-American Performance Art” Cycle is a program organized and curated by Argentina Performance Art (APA).
This cycle transcends Argentine borders to enrich the pan american artistic landscape. Using their bodies as vehicles of expression, the selected artists address critical and essential southamerican issues, such as political turmoil, social inequality, gender, cultural trauma, and more. The purpose of this cycle is to highlight the power of performance art as a vehicle for cultural preservation, resistance, and transformation. The cycle will emphasize the interrelated nature of Latin American artists and their diaspora, building a connection of narratives braided with strands of memory.
The “South-American Performance Art” cycle at @TeatroaLatea (Nov.2) & will feature live performances by Arantxa Araujo (Mexico/New York), Natacha Voliakovsky (Argentina/New York) and Pancho Lopez (Mexico) and videos by Marta Minujin (Argentina).
