Disarmed: An Artist is made Manifest

Disarmed: An Artist Is Made Manifest is a performance that moves through the nooks and crannies of 23 years of artistic labor, taking a stance on art and the country that survives itself. Far from a heroic act, it wanders bravely through the political-cultural space of Puerto Rico, an island that turns its back on itself as it fervently unravels.


Teresa Hernández is a theater artist, creator-performer and self-management activist. For 26 years, she has engaged in research and practice at the borders of dance, theater and performance. She seeks other ways of being onstage, based on a comprehensive study of bodies, space, and her own writing. (USA Rolón Fellow, 2011).
