AMERINDIANS: THE RETURN @ THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY, 1/17 – 1/20.by You the Reader
AMERINDIANS: the return is a performance-exhibition that explores indigenous memories, history and politics with a contemporary performing and digital multimedia and language.
Cristina Cortes, the author, director, choreographer and originator of the media concept, envisions a future of cross-cultural empowerment in “Amerindians: the return.” The piece mixes passages between myths, legends and historical events, from the past to the present and the future. There are composite animated illustrations with still images and video; movement on stage generates interactive 3D animations, sounds and images on screen. The opposite also occurs: still images on screen, after manipulation, trigger the appearance of live elements and characters on stage.
