Regeneración: San Antonio

Regeneración: San Antonio

Presented by Jump-Start Performance Co. at Jump-Start Performance Co.

REGENERACIÓN: SAN ANTONIO is a new work in progress performance inspired by the life of Ricardo Flores Magón, a journalist and activist in the Mexican Revolution and is written and performed by Marisela Barrera with live music by Jaime Ramírez.

Ricardo Flores Magón, along with his brother Enrique, were exiled from Porfirian Mexico for their revolutionary journalism; the brothers spent time in San Antonio where they published some issues of “Regeneración,” their call-to-action newspaper.  For REGENERACIÓN: SAN ANTONIO, Barrera brings Ricardo Flores Magón to life. She is consulting academic sources plus passages from Eduardo Galeano’s "Memory of Fire" to tell stories that are historically inspired but not 100% historically accurate.  In addition to her creative interpretations, Barrera reveals connections between 1900s Mexico and contemporary US-Mexico social issues.  REGENERACIÓN is presented in preparation for her video performance as Flores Magón with filmmaker Jimmy Mendiola.
