Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America

Nemcatacoa Teatro, Colombia


Founded in 2000 in a working class suburb of Bogota, Nemcatacoa Teatro trained in a variety of circus arts, but settled upon acrobatic stilt walking as its primary performance vehicle.  For its Southern Exposure tour the company will perform the site-based work Landscape Reinvention Society with live musical accompaniment by the Colombian ensemble Hojarasca Andina.  During the tour the piece will be performed 27 times at free outdoor public spaces ranging from parks to town plazas to a Native American reservation. The consortium members have designed a host of engagement activities with their community partners, including slideshows, lecture demonstrations, master classes and workshops. Hojarasca Andina will perform a concert of contemporary music played on traditional Andean instruments at all stops on the tour in addition to providing the soundscape for Landscape Reinvention Society.  This will be the first U.S. tour by Nemcatacoa Teatro.
