Colonial Kaleidoscopes, a trilogy of live performances filmed at several Miami venues, allude to the colonial history of Cuba and to the influence of foreign imperial powers and also local influences, on the deterioration of the island. The hand-crafted, Havana-style ceramic floor tiles I created serve as a metaphor for Cuba (or other former or current “colonies” of the imperial West). The tile floor is destroyed in a dance production by Pioneer Winter and reconstituted by Niurca Marquez and by me in two follow-up, restorative performances as “curanderas.” The curative performances are both specific and universal, exploring nostalgia, loss and longing.
