Synopsis: Interview with Ileana Diéguez, conducted by Mila Aponte-González, during the 7th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, held in August of 2009 in Bogotá, Colombia under the title 'Staging Citizenship: Cultural Rights in the Americas.' This 10-day event brought together activism, scholarship, and art around the themes of legacies, memories, struggles, and frontiers of citizenship. In this interview, Ileana Diéguez talks about her take on how her particular performance-related work makes a political intervention in the public sphere. Her book Escenarios liminales (Liminal Stages/Scenarios) is one of the most important publications in Latin America addressing the region's performance practices of recent years. Diéguez’s work discusses theatre and performance art in Peru, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico, analyzing performances that not only break with stage conventions, but that point to new ways of engaging politics.
