Bomba y Plena

Creative Alliance Residency | Baltimore, MD | 2012

Created while in residence at The Creative Alliance in Baltimore, Maryland. Site-specific installation of 10 “fans” which (when open) modify the architecture of the space, forcing people to “dance” their way through the installation in very close proximity to one another.

Based on the traditional Dances of Puerto Rico “Bomba y Plena), which are performed in voluminous white dresses.

Cotton Cloth, Wood, Steel

Fans range from 4′ to 10′ diameter
