VCS alumna Caryn Moriah is at the end of her residency at Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education, and this Friday evening she will present her final performance from 7 to 8:30 pm. Here’s Casita Maria’s announcement:
Come to Casita Maria for CARYN MORIAH as SEEMORIAH. This Friday, November 21 at 7 PM. Join the Papaya Power Revolution!
Residency: November 3 – 21, 2014
Performance: Friday, November 21, 2014 from 7 – 8:30 PM
Through dance, participatory performance and video, Seemoriah addresses the “Latina,” stereotype within Western culture. Paying homage to Josephine Baker’s infamous Danse Sauvage and her relatively lesser known commitment to Civil Rights, Moriah’s persona/superhero Seemoriah creates a contemporary interpretation of Baker’s performance, incorporating plátanos and her Papaya Power Revolution as symbols of empowerment for Puerto Rican women.
CARYN MORIAH is a Bronx-born, Puerto Rican visual and performance artist. A Silas H. Rhodes Scholar, she has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in Visual and Critical Studies. Moriah is the Founder of the Latina Feminist movement, Papaya Power Revolution. Her work was most recently exhibited in “The Last Brucennial,” an exhibition of women artists at the NY Armory Show. seemoriah.com
