Teresa Ralli: Disassembling Antígona (2013)

Teresa Ralli is a founding member of Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani - her main space of experimentation and creation. She is an actress and director who researches both voice and body. She is also a Professor at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, where she received a degree in Communications and a graduate degree (for a distinguished career) in Theatre Arts.

The 8th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute sought to examine the broad intersections between urban space, performance and political/artistic action in the Americas. From the critical poetics of body art to the occupation of public space by social movements, the event invited participants to explore the borders, identities and practices through which subjectivities, hegemonies and counter-hegemonies are constructed in the spaces of the city and beyond. This performatic demonstration is inspired by the questions that emerge during the creation of a performance of Antígona. What creative process must an actor undergo in order to arrive at the performance? How does she construct a stage language in order to bring the performance to life.
