Testigo de las ruinas (2007)

Testigo de las ruinas (2007) Marlène Ramírez-Cancio

Presented as a part of the 6th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the title "CORPOLÍTICAS en las Ámericas: Formaciones de Raza, Clase y Género / Body Politics in the Americas: Formations of Race, Class and Gender." Mapa Teatro Laboratorio de Artistas is a Colombian group that, by documenting the process of disappearance of a neighborhood, seeks to make visible molecular places where residues of otherness remain, traces of that which has been lost, narrations that reconfigure the neighborhood's memory. Testigo de las Ruinas synthesizes, in a non-chronological or linear way, Mapa Teatro's experience during the process of disappearance of a place, and the appearance of a non-place. Mapa Teatro reiterates its interest in inscribing, to the end, its experience as a "witness" through an artistic "gesture."
