Luis Sotelo Castro

Concordia University
Associate Professor
Canada
Luis C. Sotelo Castro is Canada Research Chair in Oral History Performance and Associate Professor in the Department of Theatre at Concordia University, Montreal (Quebec, Canada). In his current creation-research, he investigates modes of listening in the context of oral history performance and, more broadly, in the context of performances of memory. Since 2002, he has done work with and for internally displaced people, Indigenous communities, migrants, and elderly people both in Latin America and in the United Kingdom. More recently, he has collaborated with a family of refugees from Colombia living in Quebec and with sound artist Barry Prophet to produce a sound installation based on the family’s testimonies of displacement. His creative work has been commissioned by civil society and academic organizations such as the International Association for the Study of Forced Migration. His latest publication explore the transformative power of a memory-walk in the context of  hostage taking: Sotelo Castro, L. C. 2018. “‘Mr President: Open the Door Please, I want to be free’: Participatory Walking as Aesthetic Strategy for Transforming a Hostage Space”. Breed, Ananda and Prentki, Tim. Performance and civic engagement. Cham (Switzerland): Palgrave Macmillan. Forthcoming publications discuss listening in the context of post-conflict performances by artists in Colombia.
