Sierpe and Other Stories, by Elisa Corona Aguilar

  • El Taller Latino Americano 215 East 99th Street New York, NY, 10029 United States (map)

Sierpe is a series of compositions with electric guitar, loop, iphone, fragments of poetry and spoken word in different languages. It is a reflection on cities and technology connecting them and limiting them; it is also a conversation with visual artists, musicians and writers such as Saul Steinberg, O. Henry, and others who have explored these subjects. It is particularly a dialogue with Poet in New York, by Federico García Lorca, an enigmatic work on the residence of the writer in this city, when he was searching for a way to break with the literary tradition he came from, and he was portraying the urban space from the experience of the foreigner, the migrant, the bilingual, the stranger lost in the crowd.
