I WANT TO BE TRADITIONAL is Maritea’s latest project and is continuously under transformation, till now it includes 3 texts (“I am not sweet”, “I want to be traditional” and “Sangre”) and a video-performance in collaboration with Isaac Díaz Valderrama on camera and lights and Ursula Lascurain as assistant.
The project explores our need to label others and ourselves, belonging and identity.
I WANT TO BE TRADITIONAL has been presented as different versions since 2017 at places like the experimental poetry festival ENCLAVE in Mexico City, at Center for Performance Studies i New York, Black Box teater in Oslo, Brooklyn Studies for Dance in New York, ITINERANT international performance Art Festival NYC and at Nolitch X in Copenhagen, Denmark.
