El Fulgor Argentino, Club Social y Deportivo (2003, 2007)

"El Fulgor Argentino, Club Social y Deportivo" brings together a hundred performers, an orchestra and big puppets in order to perform a hundred years of Argentine history (1930-2030) as seen through the social dances of a community club. El Fulgor Argentino social club opens its doors as a dance hall in 1930. The military coup that brings down the presidency of Hipólito Yrigoyen interrupts the party. From then on, the dance hall activities reflect the ups and downs in Argentinean history. Political confrontations and military coups cut short El Fulgor's dance party, a celebration permanently struggling to be resumed. Rhythms change, fashion trends change, the dance is interrupted and reopened, to the beat of history's ebbs and flows. This piece is, in Catalinas Sur's own words, an exploration of memory, not as a scientific or academic approach to historical events, but as an artistic attempt to recover and recreate milestones of the community's collective memory.
