Re-cuentos y re-visiones en el teatro de Rosa Luisa Márquez (1992)

Documentary on the creative methods, pedagogic approaches and experimental performances of Puerto Rican theater director Rosa Luisa Márquez. The video shows a retrospective of theater projects developed by Márquez since 1985 with her university students in her course "Drama Activities" and her student ensemble "Teatreros Ambulantes de Cayey," as well as her artistic collaborations with renowned artists and scholars in projects where theater, the visual arts, pedagogy, community building, and politics constantly intersect. Interviews with writers, fellow professors, theater critics, university students, visual artists and other collaborators are juxtaposed to footage and pictures from performances and public interventions, along with running commentary by the artist herself, dancer and choreographer Alejandra Martorell, and partner-in-art for over twenty years Antonio Martorell. This documentary is a valuable archive of Rosa Luisa's work during these years as well as an excellent document on the manifold provocations, creative coordinates and characteristic traits of Márquez's artistic and pedagogical works.
