This is a double feature with two unique shows separated by a brief intermission.
My Name is Tenacious (Ithaca, NY) by Our Bodies Are the Earth (A collaborative ritual & project of La Llorona x Blackroot), invites the audience to a not-so-distant future to bear witness to the medicine that the end-times of our colonial world brings. Haunting and brave soundscapes, storytelling through movement, and the release that climate change ushers is honored with the creation of this sacred ritual space that touches concepts of wounds held within our identities, bodies, and the earth.

This piece is one of a ritual performance art series, Our Bodies are the Earth, performed and crafted in collaboration through artists La Llorona & Blackroot. Together they seek to deepen the channels to their roots and disarm the disassociation that has been forced upon their lineages. Together, they reawaken the powers of ancestral connection, the stories of earthly spirits and activate portals of their linkages to the present with this mesmerizing & tantillizing spellwork expression.

This performance includes live music, dance, flow arts, and ritual.

Vestigios (Quito, Ecuador)

VESTIGIOS is a game, an acrobatic dance choreography and a performance. It is a proposal and an excuse to situate ourselves in a common space of social reality in relation to the body. A body never stops dying and being reborn. In its changing condition, the body continually rearranges itself to remain the same.

This performance includes acrobatic dance.
