Coming Soon in the PRAN Projecten. Regina José Galindo (Guatemala)
(ORANJESTAD – September 16. 2021)
EL PRAN Projecten is honored to present the artistic production of one of the most powerful voices of Latin American performance. From the corporal aesthetics, she shares with us a critical, multigonal and strict imaginary of her way of interpreting and questioning environments, the defense of the vulnerable and the human rights, as part of the consistent text that she gives us in her appearances. We cordially welcome Regina José Galindo.
