Learning to Live in Miami
Abstract

“Learning to Live in Miami” takes another look and listen to Cuban exilic creativity from a city imagined as both refuge and terminus: a location that preoccupies Greater Cuba with sensations of revulsion, pleasure, and disavowal. With the encouragement of Lydia Cabrera, the performance innovators behind Teatro Prometeo, the disco supergroup Foxy, and other artists-in-residence of past and present, Vazquez pries open the familiar narrativizing about the exilic “condition” that enshrouds Cuban cultural artifacts from Miami and enters into their difficult mangrove aesthetics.
