      • I am Hector Marteau

        Former Argentine political prisoner Hector Marteau returns to the prison where he was incarcerated during the military dictatorship. (Produced and Directed by Joshua Dylan Mellars) In 1976, a right wing military junta established a repressive dictatorship in Argentina. The junta engaged in a "Dirty War" that was to last until 1983; thirty thousand people "Disappeared." The violence began years before the junta coup. State sponsored right wing paramilitary groups used the government's directive to "annihilate the subversives" as an excuse to round up, torture and kill, not only violent revolutionaries, but also elected officials, magistrates, union leaders, and university students and faculty. Early on the morning of April 1, 1975, as university student Hector Marteau walked in a fine rain near the Tucuman city center, he was ambushed by a platoon of hooded men in unmarked Ford Falcons. As Hector was thrown into the car, he instinctively shouted out: "Yo soy Hector Marteau! I am Hector Marteau!" to call attention to what was happening and so he could avoid the anonymity of the "disappeared." Above the street, windows opened, but people were fearful to come to Hector's aid. When the hooded men disregarded their orders to kidnap and assassinate Hector and instead drove him to police headquarters, their police commissioner was furious: "Why have you brought him here? He was supposed to disappear!" And so began Marteau's indefinite internment as a political prisoner. Hector, denied the right of habeas corpus and the right to a trial, was shuttled from prison to prison from 1975 until 1982: "A DETAINEE AT THE DISPOSITION OF THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE POWER." Incarcerated twice in the Caseros prison in Buenos Aires, Hector returns there on the eve of its destruction.

                  Intertwining Roots premiered at the Nitery Theater (Stanford University) in February of 2015. Intertwining Roots is a solo performance incorporating my research about Argentina’s Dirty War (1976-1983) and archives of my Filipino grandfather who worked as a diplomat in Buenos Aires during Juan Peron’s term in the late 1940s and early 1950s. My quest for him and research about the disappeared are intertwining processes of memory recuperation.
