CASTING PARA PRESIDENTE
Performance. AbdalaTheater, Ciego de Ávila, Cuba. 2007
It was a convocation to play the character of president. The people that were presented should interpret the ideal ruler saying the motto “The purpose of this acts is always to make us happy”. A jury compound for actors and theater directors, selected the best between the participants. The winner was rewarded with the equivalent to the Cuban president's monthly wage, 750 Cuban pesos. The casting intended as the reconstruction of an electoral process in which people of all class were allowed to become for a moment the main character of a country and to compete to be selected as the best.
