Original Banana Republic
In 1954 the elected government of Guatemala was overthrown by a coup encouraged by the United Fruit Company in collusion with the CIA. Ramirez-Figueroa uses this as a starting point for his performance that mines Guatemalan history and the Broadway musical. This minimalist dance musical without words or music derives inspiration from Elsa Miranda, Disney Cartoons and political speeches to explore aspects of Latin American history.
