in December 2012, Patricia Rincon and I headed to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico to research the local indigenous population and how they have adapted to contemporary life. We filmed some movement sequences in response to the interviews in two locations: El Charco del Ingenio and at the Centro de Bellas Artes, which has a room with an unfinished Siqueiros mural. These well-kept secrets of San Miguel de Allende gave us the inspiration to begin our new film project.
We are still inteviewing and looking at sites to present this work for the next season of the Patricia Rincon Dance Collective. I’m excited about working on a new film project, a new dance that reaches into my roots in Mexico, and to be moving again, after recovering from a car accident that happened a year ago.
There are many avenues to explore with a couple of new projects in the works. For now, the work is in focusing the projects and finding the right partners to bring these projects to fruition. I look forward to sharing with you these projects as they come into being.
