Fort San Felipe

“Fort San Felipe” is a site-specific piece created for the San Felipe Fort in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.  The Spanish conquistadors imposed their religion, and forced the indigenous Taino Indians to cultivate sugar and bananas, both of which were brought by the Spaniards from the Canary Islands.  My performance is a ritual including these elements in an effort to both honor and criticize history.
