The Ground in the Cities

This intervention, performed by Colombian students and volunteer artists, examines the tensions that exist between the inhabitants of the street and the local population within urban space. In this performance, the vulnerability of social ties becomes evident and daily interactions, pregnant with the informational excess of modern life and the common sense of extreme pragmatism and individualism, are given new significance.


Andrea Maciel Garcia is pursuing her PhD in Theater Arts. She has her MA in Theater, Performance and Culture from the Universidad Federal del Estado de Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO), and a professional degree in Theater Arts from the same university. She is a choreographer, performer, and dancer. She coordinates introductory groups in the area of Performance and is Assistant Professor of Theater Arts at the Centro Universitário da Cidade.
