Loco7 – Excerpt from new work “Forsaken”. “Forsaken” combines the use of rod puppets, marionettes, dance, acrobatic and video; creating conceptual images that explore the displacement of people as well as certain animal species that are endangered, (birds and butterflies.) It puts into perspective today’s international events centering around the tragedy at place in Colombia, as well as many other countries, where the citizens are pushed to the brink of despair and have no choice but to migrate. The piece deals withthe relationship between where we come from and where we go.
