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 Macaya, Bruce Duncan, and Charlotte Bacon, and to Catalina Arango Correa, who provided the Spanish translation. And to the Hemi editorial team: Amanda Sommer Lotspike, Cayetana Adrianzen Ponce, and Alexis Taylor. The work in the archive and the exhibit were made possible by Dartmouth’s 2012 Scholarly Innovation and Advancement Dean of the Faculty Award.

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