Miami Beach Cinematheque. November 18th, 2007. 8:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque is presenting a premiere performance by the newly formed performance group Homo Sapiens, conceived, written, and performed by David Rohn, with choreography and direction created in collaboration with performers Danilo de la Torre (aka Adora), Fernande Q, Geraldine and Juicy P with the audio design by Miguel Prem and photography by Dale Stine.
Silencio tells the story of a peculiar love story born in Guantanamo Prison, Cuba during August 2005. This love bond exists in a situation where it is least expected- a forbidden love between a captor and a prisoner. It is a love that is the ultimate currency of the universe, a love that has been thwarted by an emphasis in the differences between people instead of the overriding similarities.
It is the love, in the words of Oscar Wilde, “that dare not speak its name”. It refuses to go away. Silencio examines the contemporary clash of religious and cultural systems of the predominantly Judeo – Christian West and the Islamic Middle East, and in particular, in the context of homosexuality. With combined individual creative styles, and including multimedia complements, an unexpected form of expression appears on the Miami landscape.
