To the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics—with thanks for over 20 years of inspiration, creative collaborations, difficult dialogues, and joyous friendships across multiple borders.

With thanks also to Diana Taylor, Marcial Godoy, Marianne Hirsch, Ángeles Donoso, Gerd Gemunden, Bruce Duncan, Charlotte Bacon, Jill Baron, Julio Pantoja, and Jorge Villacorta. And to the Hemi editorial team: Amanda Sommer Lotspike, Cayetana Adrianzen Ponce, Alexis Taylor, and Marlène Ramírez-Cancio. The work in the archive and the exhibit were made possible by Dartmouth’s 2012 Scholarly Innovation and Advancement Dean of the Faculty Award.

Lou and Dana came with me all the way. Thank you.
