performance piece, IN DEVELOPMENT
created with Salvage Vanguard Theater
Casta (working title) is a new performance piece that explores mixed-race representation in the casta paintings of Nueva Espana (Mexico) that grew in popularity over the 18th century. Casta paintings were a unique genre of portraiture that depicted different racial mixtures arranged according to a hierarchy of race and status.
Casta is being developed with Salvage Vanguard Theater (Austin, TX) with a creative team that includes director Jenny Larson and composer Graham Reynolds.
