Project: Soldado Raso: Monologues of Tucson Veterans

 

Performing artist, Marc Pinate has dedicated his latest project, Veteranos, to Latinx veterans, paying homage by telling their story of sacrifice through a theatrical solo performance.

“Hispanics have served in every war since the American Revolution and have been proportionally awarded more Medals of Honor than any other ethnic group. As race politics and anti-immigrant sentiment crescendos, it is important that narratives of Hispanics’ tradition of patriotism and the emotional sacrifice made by these men and women are recognized,” states Pinate.

Pinate is compiling monologues for this performance based on interviews he conducted with war veterans from South Tucson, then combining them with live Son Jarocho folk music from Veracuz, Mexico.

During a three-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, I will create new works about the US criminal justice system. The working title for the project is “Solicitudes and Solitudes,” which will be a series of studio-based and social practice works examining the parts we all play in supporting and subverting the system on individual, familial, communal, and societal levels. It is a topic that is both personal and political, timely and unfortunately timeless.

The dialogues inquire into the embodied, effective, performative, material, visual, and spatial politics of cross-border human mobilities, through arts/design as well as other disciplines and practices. It concerns all the actors involved in these mobilities: the remarkable proliferation over recent years of heterogeneous human migration formations, including labor migrants and people seeking asylum, the border enforcement infrastructures that arise in response to these mobilities, as well as how these infrastructures incorporate market-based/migration industry actors.
