Espacios Latentes Replanteados/Latent Spaces Reframed is an installation of site-specific screendance works by Ana Baer and artistic collaborators. The exhibit was produced by Theater and Dance Department Texas State University, Cuerpo Académico de Artes Escénicas UMSNH and coordinated by Rocio Luna. The exhibit took place at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Alfredo Zalce (MACAZ), Morelia, Mexico, and it consisted of eight works co-directed, co-produced, filmed and edited by Baer. The project explores two broad themes within Baer’s site-specific screendance work: themes loosely categorized as “extreme environments” (Wild-er-ness + WECreateICE + WECreate Spaces) and “identity, roots, and home” (shift + La Sabina + TerraBlue + Jenchekua + Parákata).
Heike Salzer shared the direction, production, cinematography and editing of the piece WECreateICE, as well as the direction and production of Wild-er-ness and WECreate Spaces; Rocio Luna shared the direction and production of the piece La Sabina, and the production of Jenchekua; Rosely Conz shared the direction and production of the piece TerraBlue; Alonso Hernandez created the scenic design for the whole exhibit.
Espacios Latentes Replanteados/Latent Spaces Reframed was open from June 23- 30, 2019. As opening event the space was activated by a live performance by Rocio Luna, Heike Salzer, Natalia Reza and Yunuen Mejia.
