The Ringling Welcomes Performance by Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol Theatre Collective

Coconut Telegraph

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY NOV 30, 2019

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is pleased to welcome Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol theatre collective and their production of Tijuana. The performance, December 6 and 7 at 7:30 pm in the Historic Asolo Theater, is the staged result of a real anthropological theater experiment undertaken by Lagartijas ensemble member Gabino Rodríguez. Rodriguez abandoned his life in Mexico City to work on an assembly line in a Tijuana factory on the U.S. border. He passed under the false identity of Santiago Ramírez, wore a fake moustache, had no contact with friends, family, or colleagues and earned the legal minimum wage. Tijuana is the prelude to a large-scale political and social panorama entitled Democracy in Mexico (1965–2015), which is designed to be told in 32 parts—one for every Mexican state. It is the latest project of the Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol collective, which, since being founded in 2003, has explored the borders between documentary and fiction in various theatrical forms to reveal the contradictions in Mexico, thus aiming to use the theatre as a means of political mobilization. Tickets can be obtained online at ringling.org or by calling 941-360-7399.
