Yo, Rumores Silencio

     In 2009, Dora Arreola began a multi-year performance research project based on Telares (o el olvido) / Looms (or, the forgetting) a three-part play about colonization and memory, by Fabiola Ruiz.  In 2009, Arreola was one of five women artists selected globally for "Meetings with Remarkable Women: Investigating Women's Contribution to Grotowski's Cross-Cultural Performance Research," organized by Dr. Virginie Magnat. While in residence in Wroclaw, Poland, Arreola began developing the first part of the trilogy as a solo performance, titled "Yo, Rumores Silencio."  My objective of the process was to investigate more deeply the relationship between traditional practices and contemporary performance; and more broadly, the relationship between a sacred action and a performative action.

The loss of memory and the search for identity are the main themes woven into "Telares o el Olvido" by Fabiola Ruiz, the story of a small mountain village where the inhabitants, without realizing it, carry on a struggle between tradition and modernity, which represents the symbol of what is currently happening in different parts of Mexico and the world. La Urdimbre tells about what happens in the indigenous territories with the arrival of the capitalistic culture and how this is destroying the lives of its inhabitants.
