The Loisaida Center is proud to announce
The 2015 Loisaida Festival Artists in Residence:
May 19th, 2015–May 24th, 2015
The objective was to develop and host a series of theater workshops as well as a live performance play that incorporates the skills refined during the workshop.
Vueltabajo formed in Barcelona, and is currently based in Puerto Rico. Vueltabajo concentrates in using theater as a mode of general artistic development, activism and community self-discovery. Their ground-breaking work leans heavily in the visual arts, dance and live music medium.
During the weekend leading up to the 2015 Loisaida Festival, Vueltabajo successfully hosted a series of free 3-hour theater workshops, open to all, on street theater techniques, mime body techniques, and site specific work. Vueltabajo, in addition, successfully put on a play, utilizing these techniques, that was performed during the street festival itself on Sunday, May 24th, 2015 at La Plaza Cultural.
