Cuba, Art, Performance, and Politics - a conversation with Dr. Laurie Frederik

Description:
Dr. Laurie Frederik discusses her book: Trumpets in the Mountains: Theater and the Politics of National Culture in Cuba. She examines the complex relationships among performing artists, state institutions, and the Cuban people in contemporary culture. Dr. Frederik has been conducting ethnographic research in Cuba for over 15 years primarily in the isolated mountain communities of Escambray and Guantanamo called zones of silence, and with artists and intellectuals in Havana and Cienfuegos. She looks at rural-urban tensions in identity politics and creative process, and provides an on-the-ground account of how visions of the nation are developed, manipulated, dramatized, and subverted. Talk followed by Q&A. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 8, 2014
