I am in Monterrey Mexico working with a theatre group Pura Vibra to create a performance to be presented at the Santa Lucia Festival. For the past two weeks we have been in R & D; sharing skills and knitting material together which has formed our 45 minute performance ‘Invisible Cities Bridges’. We premiered last night and now have a run of fifteen performances.
“Invisible cities bridges” through the use of acrobatic stilts, dance, theatre and the writings of Cabeza de Vaca y de Italo Calvino, Pura Vibra and Carpetbag Brigade explore the tension between individuals, between one group and another, between the North and South, between Mexico and the USA. The show created especially for the International Festival of Santa Lucia, stressed the technical acrobatic, “stiltwalking”, common technique in both groups.
