Performance of A Tale of Two Tricksters from Pregones Theater in The Bronx, New York City and Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage, Alaska—Saturday 14 April 2018
The fifth season of Artspace’s Art Bridge program culminated in Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater and Alaska Native Heritage Center presenting an experimental workshop performance of A Tale of Two Tricksters, livestreamed from the The Bronx in New York City and Anchorage, Alaska on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv. Tune in Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 8 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4) / 7 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -3) / 5 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles, UTC -7) / 4 p.m. AKDT (Anchorage, UTC -8).
Raven v. Vejigante! Drawing from the riches of two distinct communities, A Tale of Two Tricksters is an evolving new performance project by the artists of the Alaska Native Heritage Center (ANHC) and Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater (Pregones/PRTT), showcasing creation myths.
Using the web, digital media, and in-person interactions, they are bridging the geographic distance between The Bronx and Anchorage to see what it’s like for each organization to champion culture, language, and authentic creative expression in these United States.
After a year of sharing, study, and exchange with support provided by Art Bridge at Artspace Projects in Minnesota—a brand new work is born! A Tale of Two Tricksters will be livestreamed while they perform in front of live audiences from their respective locations, interacting with each other using projected sounds and images.
Artists from Alaska Native Heritage Center:
Loren Anderson, Stephen Blanchett, Ed Tiulana, Tatiana Ticknor, Allison Warden.
Artists from Pregones/PRTT:
Christin Eve Cato, Sol M. Crespo, Desmar Guevara, Cedric Leiba, Jr., Jorge B. Merced.
