Donde el viento hace buñuelos (2004)

Version 1: Donde el viento hace buñuelos (performed at Casa Malayerba, Quito, Ecuador)

Donde el viento hace buñuelos crystallizes an ongoing artistic collaboration Teatro Malayerba (Ecuador) and Rosa Luisa Márquez (Puerto Rico), produced under the name Suda/k/ribe. Collaboratively created through improvisations by actresses María del Rosario "Charo" Francés and Rosa Luisa Márquez, the directorial and dramaturgical vision of Arístides Vargas, and the visual and spatial transformations by Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell, the play portrays the close relationship between two friends, developed in multiple encounters through time and space in the slippery territory of memory. The characters share the encounters and disencounters experienced while living in countries traversed by borders, incommunication, censorship, indifference and violence. Between life and death, memories and games, Catalina and Miranda weave their relationship, turning friendship into a community of affect, a virtual homeland of solidarity where to live amidst political and spiritual exile. Music by Puerto Rican artist María Pilar Aponte (who performs an enigmatic character, an Angel of Death of sorts) complements their journey between exile and memory, uprootedness and solidarity.
