I started working on theater and performance from a literary perspective, then moved to performance studies and into digital humanities, which is where I am at. As a community engaged scholar, I work with many theater companies in Miami and in Cuba, and I am actively involved in developing US-Cuba cultural dialogues through theater and performance. In addition to several co-edited theater and performance anthologies and scholarly articles, I have directed the filming and video-editing of over 100 theater productions, in Cuba and the United States, both equity and non-equity, filmed for archival purposes. I am founding director of the Cuban Theater Digital Archive (http://cubantheater.org), a platform that serves as a space for communication between politically-divided communities. I have also published a bilingual online exhibit Cuban Theater in Miami: 1960-1980 (http://scholar.library.miami.edu/miamitheater/). Finally, I am interested in incorporating GIS in digital humanities projects. I have a research project on performing arts spaces in Spanish in Miami called "Sites that Speak." I am creating it using the Scalar platform (http://scalar.usc.edu/hc/sites-that-speak/index) learned during the 2012 NEH Summer Institute for Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities on Digital Cultural Mapping.
