News about Performance Art in , Caracas, Venezuela. Performance project developing until March at wonderful speed here at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Caracas. Not a Workshop but a personal piece. Workshops didn´t do too well this past year (yet the 2 "video-forums" did!), but, as teaching is my goal, hopefully things will come across soon enough. It´s fixed on my mind (teaching) and I´m still working hard on it.! (hopefully, this "show" will be a good grounding for the workshop project)
