Luciana Proano interprets the poetry of CÃƒÂ©sar Vallejo, the intense and innovative Peruvian poet at the turn of the 20th century. Born in a small Andean town, Vallejo lived most of his adult life in Paris during the surrealist movement and traveled through Spain and Russia during the Spanish civil war.
A seeker of justice in the deepest humane sense, he became closely involved with the artistic and political movements of his time, equally in touch with his Peruvian roots and his universality.
Using a hammock, cajon, castanets and voice through a sound effect box manipulated by JB Butler, Luciana freely recreates and dialogues with Vallejo. The newest version also includes guitar accompaniment by JB Butler. The title “Me siento con Vallejo” is a play of words which translates both into “I feel with Vallejo” and “I sit with Vallejo”. Presented in Spanish or English, the dynamics and images alone are enough to carry the spectator through.
