Sylvia Palacios Whitman

It was an honor and pleasure to serve as the rehearsal director and perform in several of the early works of Sylvia Palacios Whitman; presented by REDCAT in partnership with Hammer Museum and Show Box LA/we live in space as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

In collaboration with local performers, Palacios Whitman creates striking visual poetry with sculptural props that evoke dreamlike images of mummies, a large elephant trunk, giant hands, and a “human paper coil.” The program includes actions first carried out in the 1970s — exemplifying Sylvia Palacios Whitman’s unique performance style, in which surreal stage props and wearable art create a visual form of theater that combines a rich Latin American pictorial sensibility with the minimalism of New York’s dance scene of the 1970s. Known to performance art enthusiasts on the East Coast, this will be the first time one of Whitman’s performances will be staged on the West Coast. With performers Alfonso Cervera, Jessica Hemingway, Sebastian Hernandez, Austyn Rich, Crystal Sepulveda, Jillian Stein, and Wolfe.
