Ang’s latest piece is actually a solo. It started off as a personal challenge to go out on stage and leave directing aside for a minute. Thus, Ang was selected to take part as performer at a dance-theater festival for social justice by women and gender non-conforming artists from New England, which is titled We Create and is beautifully and luxuriously well-organized by the powerful dance-theater for social justice company, Danza Orgánica.
As performer, Ang is mostly a spoken word scenic performer. That means…speaking out to the crowds is a zone of comfort for Ang whereby the stage becomes play. A playground is all it is, really, wherein Ang needs to feel comfortable before organicity can be a part of her game.
In the Past
As part of the 50th anniversary since the creation of the School of Modern Languages, the school created a short video that recounts its history through mention of its directors to date. That is how we created a collective work through which a main character (yep! Ang’s first acting gig for the camera and as a main one) looked for a room in the school’s buildings that has traditionally been very hard to find. One of those senseless things in a known, loved environment. Directed under famous national theater director, Mabel Marín, the camera direction came from a man who knows what he is doing, Mr. Carlos Chacón. Under the edit mastery of Harry Sibaja, here is a glimpse of the first steps in camera acting for Ang. A looong, long time ago…not too long, though! 😉
