Otra maldad de Pateco (1987)

Based on a text by renowned Puerto Rican writer Ana Lydia Vega, this recording for television portrays the story of a child of a slave owner family; born with a white body and black head, Pateco needs to decide where his allegiance lies. As explained by Márquez in the video, Afro Caribbean characters and Puerto Rican traditional games and crafts are incorporated to the performance as a social and pedagogical intervention in the public sphere aiming to open up a discussion on race while rendering drama activities and traditional stories accessible to the Puerto Rican population.
