—Walter Rodney (1942-1980): Dragón makes several references to this intellectual, born in Guyana in 1942. As an anticolonial historian, capitalist system critic and one of the most important figures in the Black Power movement in the Caribbean, his academic interests were as important as his commitment to exploited groups and the Caribbean community of African descendance. To him, these were the two great powers that could lead a revolution and change the system. He was murdered in an attack in 1980, after several year’s persecution for being a possible subversive.
—Invisible theater: This is another of the forms of representation referred to in the play. It occupies open spaces - the street, a mall - to recreate a fictional story in a real context. In other words, those who see it don’t know that the people in it are actors. This concept is attributed to Brazilian playwright and theater director, Augusto Boal (1931-2009), who also created the ‘Theater of the Oppressed’ concept.
—Performance: an avant-garde art form in which the play’s medium is the artist’s body and the play itself is made up of the actions this carries out, normally combined with multiple other elements such as the visual arts, music, dance and theater. It’s one of the art forms that transformed art in the middle of the twentieth century.
—Installation: a contemporary art genre that prioritizes ideas more than formalities; in other words, the piece’s set and form are at the service of the specific concept the artist wants to explore. Objects are used, spaces intervened with and elements organized according to an infinite selection of physical, visual or sound-related mediums, like photography, videos or performance, in order to make the audience reflect on or feel certain things.
