LMM: CUERPAS I
May 20th | 8pm | MR @ Judson Church

La Mujer Maravilla: Cuerpas I
Proyecto: La Mujer Maravilla (La Mujer Maravilla Project) was first conceived by Awilda Rodríguez Lora during El Residencial 2013 at Patio Taller, an art residency developed by Las Nietas de Nonó, Sunny Drake and Awilda Rodríguez Lora in Carolina, Puerto Rico. Since then the project has performed over twenty different explorations that challenge and deconstruct the concept of being a Wonder Woman. Who gets to be a Wonder Woman? What are her powers? Does she really exist? For more information on the performers and the project please visit lamujermaravilla.org.

Choreographed and performed by Awilda Rodríguez Lora, Lydela Nonó and Alejandra Maldonado Morales.

Awilda Rodríguez Lora
is a performance choreographer. She challenges in her work the concepts of woman, sexuality, and self-determination. These concepts are explored through the use of movement, sound, and video as well as through literal instantiations of an “economy of living” that either potentiate or subtracts from her body’s “value” in the contemporary art market. Born in Mexico, raised in Puerto Rico, and working in-between North and South America and the Hispanic Caribbean, Rodríguez Lora's performances traverse multiple geographic histories and realities. In this way, her work promotes progressive dialogues regarding hemispheric colonial legacies, and the unstable categories of race, gender, class, and sexuality. Rodríguez Lora has performed at Brooklyn Museum, Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (BAAD), New York University, the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbia College Dance Center, and the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), among others. Her solo work has been recently featured at DEFORMES Performance Biennale (Chile), Posta Sur Performance Encounter (Chile), Independence Dom (Dominican Republic) and the Miami International P erformance Art Festival (USA).

Le provocan; memoria, montaña, misterio y lo que se mueve internamente en su ser. “Me bebo el mar en un galón de agua...” -LN
