Machera Series 3
This performance was presented during the 2013 Milwaukee Arts Festival in Chicago as part of Trailer Park Projects. In this installment the performance was presented five times, once every hour. The door of the truck was raised to just below the knees of the performers. The performers’ outfits were all red. The lights inside the truck turn on as well as the loud Latin music. The performers danced choreography for 10 minutes. The truck moved and jumped along with the movement of the performers. Part of the audience was Hispanic. They sang and danced along the music. The door was shut while the performers weren’t performing.
