Foto-estáticas (1985, 2002)

Program for Foto-estáticas Program for Foto-estáticas

This video documents a choreographic version of Foto-Estáticas. A collaboration between Rosa Luisa Márquez and renowned Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell, the piece was originally created in 1985 with students of the course Drama Activities at the University of Puerto Rico (Humacao campus) as a performance to complement Martorell's art show Álbum de Familia, (Family Album). The piece has since then been restaged several times by the Teatreros Ambulantes de Cayey, touring internationally. The present iteration of the piece is a choreographic version created in collaboration with Puerto Rican contemporary dance company Andanza, directed by Lolita Villanúa. Before the piece starts, the audience is invited to join the artists onstage in creating the characteristic costumes of "Foto-Estáticas," an array of garments and props made out of recycled newsprint.
