Synopsis: Video documentation of Secos y Mojadoss performance Enterrada en el Cuerpo del Recuerdo (Buried in the Body of Memory), presented as a part of the 6th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the title CORPOLÍTICAS en las Américas: Formaciones de Raza, Clase y Género / Body Politics in the Americas: Formations of Race, Class and Gender. Secos y Mojados is a Latino performance collective based in San Francisco, California (USA) and co-founded by Violeta Luna (Mexico), Víctor Cartagena (El Salvador), David Molina (Argelia/El Salvador) and its director, Roberto G. Varea (Argentina). The multimedia performance here documented revolves around the subject of immigration. The immigrant is a divided being. A being marked by having crossed to the other side, always aware of here and there, before and after. After the moment of crossing, the immigrant is never the same.
