Eye for Detail is a movement piece that deals with the perception of sight; how we see what we see is not necessarily what we see and vice versa. Perception, being highly personal, undoubtedly influences the light that shines into our eyes. My goal is for the audience to experience the perception of sight as a variable that is transformed by time and information.

Eye for Detail is a project that intently examines movement, allowing the audience to examine how movement is simultaneously seen and perceived and how it is conceptually understood.  As a performer, I strive for the ability to craftfully guide the eye/mind of the viewer to see, experience and perceive a predetermined platform.  What happens to our mind and our sensory systems when we observe movement?  What elements in movement help us decide who or what we are observing?  The project seeks full audience participation. Eye for detail is an opportunity to look at what we do the most, yet what we’re least cognizant of.

All donations will go toward artists fees, pre-production, and post production expenses.

The players in this proyect are Sylvia Bofill as co-director and writer, Ernesto Rodriguez (lighting designer), Sally Torres Vega (costume designer), Jorge Castro (sound designer), and Karen Langevin (mover and director). We are showing this proyect as a work in progress in May and the finished product in November in a small local theatre. Production costs involve paying for the theatre, lighting, costumes, sound, props, advertisement and proyect documentation. At a minimum we need $3,000.00 to barely cover all these costs and to get the proyect started. Also doing some local fundraising and hoping to sell the house out. Making art in Puerto Rico is a labor of love, dedication and passion. Government funding is non-existant as per the last few years, so artistic work of this type is not seen very often anymore.  Experimental artists are leaving the country to do and show their work. Staying here is an uphill battle. Presenting this work is resistance to this cultural crumbling and a conviction that we can still create with dedication and persistance (necessity IS the mother of invention……)

If you can’t donate pass it forward!!!!

Talk about it, come see it, spread the word. We are here and we are working/creating/investigating/doing!!!!

Thank you.
