Carmelita Tropicana’s father was jailed as a teen for his revolutionary activities. He joined the rebel forces to free Cuba from Batista’s regime fighting alongside Castro but was forced to leave Cuba when he wrote a scathing report on a jail holding political prisoners. As a father he was in and out of Carmelita’s life for years at a time, and while she once wanted normalcy and yearned for a father who was a dentist, she is beginning to think that “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” This new piece by New York City-based performance artist Carmelita Tropicana explores complex racial and social issues through meta-biographical performance.
