Wanderings

Displaced women walk along three different routes through high-traffic pedestrian malls. Wanderings originated in the development of certain scenes from Teatro La Máscara's theater piece Country at War with women who have been displaced due to violence in the southwestern region of Colombia.

Biography

Teatro La Máscara is the oldest --and one of the only-- feminist, all-women's theater in Colombia. Committed to feminism and social change, they have stayed true to this mission, despite the many social and economic pressures they've had to endure in an environment plagued by violence and machismo, which constantly seeks to "invisibilize" their work.La Máscara is not only creating and staging plays, but also working with marginalized communities, actively participating in political protests and demonstrations, and being involved in the organization of theater festivals.
