INSIDE THE CIRCUS
The Distilled Story
The idea of curiosity and the oddity of connection with an untouchable past as it mixes with the experience of a present moment. Through the Ideology and persona of the Cuban revolution. The act of being born in Cuba and having lived in the USA most of my life, within a a never ending political rain storm. I have tried to recreate a present vortex in witch my Grandparents memories and the power of the Circus can help me create multiple other frames based on real lives , that somehow could live in harmony. Through the power of poetry, music and archival footage, the representational circus comes back to life, and the power to reinforce social change, can happen even while struggling for your daily bread. This physical and yet soulful actions becomes the crux of my Art and Film investigations.

“DAMN EVERYTHING BUT THE CIRCUS!. . .THE AVERAGE 'PAINTER' 'SCULPTOR' 'POET' 'COMPOSER' 'PLAYWRIGHT' IS A PERSON WHO CANNOT LEAP THROUGH A HOOP FROM THE BACK OF A GALLOPING HORSE, MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH WITH A CLOWN'S MOUTH, ORCHESTRATE TWENTY LIONS.”
